Martha O’Neill Receives the Ted Jordan Award

As it has for the last three years, the Nashua Bar has honored one of its members with the Edward A. Jordan, Sr. Humanitarian Award.  On the evening of April 18, Martha O’Neill received the award, which is presented each year in memory of Ted Jordan, a member of the Nashua Bar Association from 1967-2002.  The Nashua Bar honors his adventurous spirit and his lifelong concern for helping to improve the welfare and happiness of all whose lives he touched.


Ted promoted the congeniality, civility and camaraderie of his profession.  The 2006 recipient of the award, Martha O’Neill, is very much like him.


Martha attended Wellesley College and graduated from Georgetown University Law Center in 1982.  She joined the NH Bar that same year.  She is one of those rare people, a native of New Hampshire, and of Nashua.  Just as rarely, she has stayed with the same firm, Clancy and O’Neil, in Nashua, since graduating from law school. 


Like Ted, she has been very active in the Nashua community.   She is currently president of the Nutt Hospital Fund and a member of the following boards: the Rivier College Board of Trustees; Mary A. Sweeney Home Board of Trustees; Southern NH Medical Center Board; Currier Museum Advisory Council; the J. Wilfred Anctil Foundation Board of Trustees; the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua Foundation Board of Trustees


Given these commitments and the demands of a full-time practice, Martha has somehow found the way to keep her life in balance. She enjoys talking about her recent travels to various parts of the world and has contributed greatly to the congeniality of the Bar.


Due to an editing error, the detailed information about the Ted Jordan award recipient did not appear in the May 5 Bar News article covering the joint meeting of the Manchester and Nashua bar associations at the Bedford Village Inn. Bar News apologizes for the omission.




If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
