Morning Mail: 50-Year Member Remembered Fondly
Recently, I read Edward J. McDermott’s profile as a 50-Year Bar Member, including over 30 years on the bench as Hampton District Court Special Justice. I was touched perhaps more than most, given that 25 years ago, Ed saw something in a young law school graduate, which prompted him to give me my first opportunity to practice in New Hampshire.
That, in turn, led to my settling in New Hampshire, meeting my future wife, and eventually raising the family I now so cherish. So, though I am grateful to Ed for his many years of service to me and my fellow citizens of New Hampshire, I am even more grateful to him as a husband and father, since without him, I would never have known or had those whom I now hold so dear. Thank you, Ed.
