Unfortunately, lawyers are prime targets for hackers due to the nature of privileged client information we receive.

We will explore this topic through the lens of institutional abuse as attorneys who have worked on both sides of these cases share their experiences. Learn how to recognize and maintain proper boundaries as well as respect the limits of your role as counsel in these highly charged cases.

Attorneys Peter Hutchins, Roderick MacLeish and David Wolowitz will discuss the challenges inherent in these cases and provide practical advice for handling the professional and personal demands attorneys encounter.

Attorneys McLeish and Hutchins have handled hundreds of claims on behalf of victim survivors of sexual abuse against the Diocese of Manchester (NH), the Archdiocese of Boston, and numerous other institutional defendants including private prep schools in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts.




Eric MacLeish has represented victims of sexual abuse around the country since 1989. He was lead counsel in the clergy abuse cases in Boston where he represented more than 325 victims of abuse between 2002 and 2004. Currently, he represents victims of abuse at private schools, including 35 alumni of St. George's School. He has been named one of the top ten winning trial lawyers in the county by the National Law Journal in 2013 and was also named a "Lawyer of the Year" by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly in 2016. He practices at Clark Hunt Ahern & Embry in Cambridge, Massachusetts and resides in New Hampshire.

David Wolowitz has been an advocate and advisor for the protection of vulnerable individuals in institutional settings throughout his 40+ year legal career. His first two cases before the New Hampshire Supreme Court in 1977 and 1978 established due process rights, including the right to counsel, for persons facing civil commitment to the New Hampshire Hospital and for residents of the Laconia State School facing guardianship hearings. David's successful suit against Lakeview NeuroRehabilitation Center in July, 2000, for institutional and employee abuse of a teenage resident was featured on the public radio show Reveal, from The Center for Investigative Reporting, in the 2015 series "A Mountain of Misconduct". The focus of David's practice now is advising independent schools nationwide and around the world on promoting safe and healthy school cultures. He also serves as an expert witness on the standard of care for independent schools for protecting the health, safety and welfare of students

Peter Hutchins served as President of the NH Bar Association in 2001-02, and was formerly a partner in the Manchester firm of Wiggin & Nourie. He currently practices plaintiffs' personal injury litigation in Manchester at his own firm. Attorney Hutchins has represented over 300 victims/survivors of childhood sexual abuse against institutional defendants.
