Nutter Attorneys Participate in 19th Annual Walk to the Hill for Civic Legal AidPrint PDF
On January 25, 2018, Nutter attorneys participated in the 19th annual Walk to the Hill. This event brings together attorneys from all over the city to urge lawmakers to protect state funding for programs that provide civil legal aid to low-income Massachusetts residents. Nutter has participated in the Walk to the Hill since its inception.
Below, the two captains of this year’s event, Associates Nick Stabile and Valerie Imparato, elaborate on their experiences leading Nutter lawyers to Beacon Hill for one of the largest lobbying days at the Massachusetts State House.
“This was my first year serving as a captain for Walk to the Hill, and it was wonderful seeing the Nutter community, and the greater Boston legal community, come together for this important cause. The firm leadership was supportive and enthusiastic, and that made being a captain easy. Walk to the Hill highlights the privilege and responsibility that we have as attorneys to protect the most vulnerable among us.” – Valerie Imparato, Associate, Litigation Department
“This is the third year in which I’ve served as a captain for the Walk, and each year I continue to be impressed with the turnout and enthusiasm for the event (it seems like there is less and less standing room each year in the Hall of Flags for the keynote speakers). The sight of hundreds of attorneys from all practice areas and all parts of greater Boston filling the State House is incredibly inspiring. Events like this remind me of the human connections we all share and the spirit of justice that we all try to make a part of our careers. I’m proud to have led the Nutter team for several years.” -- Nick Stabile, Associate, Private Client Department
