The MBF lost a true friend and champion when Roy A. Hammer, who was President of the MBF from 1981-1984, passed away last week at the age of 81.

The MBF had recently honored Roy with a special President’s Award in recognition of his many remarkable contributions to the MBF both during his presidency and throughout his legal career. His vision and service to the mission of promoting equal access to justice was legendary. He will be greatly missed.

The MBF extends its sincerest sympathies to Roy’s family and friends.  Service arrangements are being made under the direction of Levine Chapels in Brookline. Click here for details.
