Over 100 people packed the North Andover Country Club for the Lawrence Bar Association's annual Spring Dinner. The program began by honoring Tom Caffrey with the organization's most valued award for 50 years of distinguished service. Tom was introduced by his son and former partner, Matt Caffrey. The LBA also awarded this year's Leadership Award to Dick Consoli, who attended with his wife and children, for his many years of service not only to the bar but also to the community as a businessman, lawyer, and mentor.
The evening's featured speaker was Hank Brennan, who served as co-counsel to infamous Bostonian, James "Whitey" Bulger. Hank riveted the attendees with stories from inside the jail cell, and with how the trial was as much an indictment of the FBI and the federal government for the criminal environment it helped facilitate in Boston.
