Andre Sansoucy was posthumously named Massachusetts Defense Lawyer of the Year at the MDLA Annual Meeting on Friday, May 29, 2015. The award was accepted by his widow, Jody Sansoucy. The award was presented by Bill Chapman in front of a crowd of nearly two hundred attendees. U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz, the keynote speaker, paused to acknowledge Andre’s career and family. It was a great tribute to Andre. We continue to be inspired by the high standards he set during his career. Melick & Porter has established an endowment in Andre’s name to support the work of Justice Bridge, an organization focused on bringing quality, affordable legal representation to clients who cannot afford traditional market rates.
