Partner Lisa C. Goodheart, and Denise I. Murphy of Rubin and Rudman, were recently appointed by the Supreme Judicial Court to co-chair a special committee that will lead the search process for the next Bar Counsel, upon the retirement of longtime Bar Counsel Constance Vecchione.

The other members of this search committee are SJC Associate Justice Frank M. Gaziano, Thomas H. Bilodeau, III, Grace V.B. Garcia, Sherri Gilmore, Katherine L. Kenney, Hannah L. Kilson, Sandy Lundy, Thomas F. Maffei, John J.  Morrissey, Elizabeth N. Mulvey, Patrick J. O’Toole, Jr., Vincent J. Pisegna, Victoria Santoro Mair, Siobhan M. Sweeney, and Richard C. Van Nostrand.
