Patrick M. Goodreau, Esquire
Criminal Law Section Chair
The Hampden County Bar Association has a standing committee known as the Criminal Law Section. The Criminal Law Section is comprised of attorneys, both criminal and defense, specializing in criminal law. The purpose of the Criminal Law Section is to:
promote and foster a more collegial relationship between the Commonwealth’s prosecutors and the Defense Bar; and,
to encourage and promote education and training opportunities relevant to criminal law practitioners designed to benefit the legal community and the general public; and to host educational programs, follow the legislation of interest, publish newsletter articles periodically and maintain the content of the HCBA’s Criminal Law Section webpage.
We alternate months having a section meeting one month and an evening social the next month. If you are interested in participating in the section, we invite you to join us. For more information, please contact the HCBA office at (413) 732-4660 or by email.
