2012 news archive


Newton, MA--BC Law graduates John H. Cunha Jr. '77, and Robert F. Shaw '97 are named in a list of ten 'Lawyers of the Year," compiled by the editorial staff at Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly.

Cunha, of Cunha & Holcomb, was selected for his work on the 'Mattapan Massacre' homicide trial. The jury in that case found his client not guilty. Shaw, of the Law Offices of Robert F. Shaw Jr., convinced the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to overturn a murder conviction in November based in part on the admissibility of a rap video as evidence of gang affiliation.

The special section featuring the 2012 Lawyers of the Year will appear in the January 14th issue of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly.
