The Massachusetts Defense Lawyers Association (MassDLA)

The Massachusetts Defense Lawyers Association (MassDLA) is an association of attorneys practicing defense work in the field of civil litigation.  It is a growing, dynamic institution committed to increasing its diverse membership.   Although the organization is based in Massachusetts, our members conduct business and service clients located throughout the United States and abroad.  The MassDLA is dedicated to advancing the collective goals of both our members and their clients, through educational programming, the filing of amicus briefs on important defense issues, pro bono initiatives, and through our Substantive Law Committees and other opportunities for professional growth and development.


We believe that our greatest resource is the shared knowledge and involvement of our members, from the most senior established shareholder to the most junior associate.  Our members are active through publishing, hosting programs, lecturing and chairing our Substantive Law Committees.  The MassDLA also is a wonderful place to network, catch up with old friends, and make new ones.  It offers not only the Mid-Winter Social and Annual Meeting as times to get together, but miscellaneous programming throughout the year. 

Together, our programs, articles and events foster collegiality, education and professionalism in the defense bar.

If you are interested in joining the MassDLA, please contact our Executive Director, Cheryl Palombizio at executivedirector@massdla.org, or MassDLA President, Christine Knipper at christine.knipper@wilsonelser.com.  We hope you will join us.
