Assistant US Attorney, David L. Broderick of Manchester, passed away recently at the age of 57 of lung cancer. Broderick graduated from Suffolk University in 1977 and joined the NH Bar the same year. He worked at Malloy and Sullivan in Manchester, specializing in media-related law, before moving to the US Attorney’s Office in Concord.

McLane served on the Concord City Council for twenty years, as Mayor of Concord from 1970 to 1976, and served on the Executive Council from 1977 to 1982.

Throughout his fifty-year career as a trusts and estates lawyer, he advised generations of families across New Hampshire. He joined the Concord law firm of Orr and Reno in 1952 and served as President of the firm from 1981 to 1984.

A 1942 graduate of St. Paul’s School, he served as an officer in the Air Force in World War II.

McLane graduated from Dartmouth with the Class of 1946. In 1948, he married Susan Neidlinger of Hanover and moved to Oxford, England, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He graduated from Harvard Law School in 1952, and moved to Concord with his young family and began practicing law at Orr and Reno.


He was predeceased by his wife of 58 years, former N.H. Senator Susan McLane; and leaves three daughters, Robin McLane; Debbie Carter of Norwich, Vt; and Ann McLane Kuster of Hopkinton. He is survived by several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
