The Passing of One of the Most Respected Trial Attorneys, Dick Renehan
Although saddened to hear of the passing of attorney Dick Renehan we are proud to have been professionally associated with him for over the past forty years. Dick was thought by many to be one of the top trial attorneys in Massachusetts.
Dick was a humble trial attorney who fostered the development of Governors Bill Weld, Mike Dukakis, and Deval Patrick over their legal careers.
Dick worked closely with many in the firm in numerous litigation efforts. He was also instrumental in the initiation of the firm back some 40 years ago. “There was nobody more respected than Dick Renehan as a trial lawyer who could “reduce law to its simplest forms and present it in that way in front of the jury “said Arthur Murphy. Arthur also said “many of us were fortunate to be a friend of Dick Renehan and used him as a mentor.”
Thank you Dick Renehan and condolences to his entire family, Mary, Joan, Anne and Mark
