The Hampden County Bar Association is a volunteer, non-profit organization of lawyers representing the legal profession, serving lawyers, the justice system, and the public. The core values of the Hampden County Bar Association are professionalism, equal access to the legal system for all, and an unwavering commitment to the profession, to each other and the people we serve.
New this year, the proceeds will benefit awareness of mental health, substance abuse, and homelessness, in addition to the Children's Law Project and the Archer B. Battista Veterans Scholarship Fund.
The Colonel Archer B. Battista Veterans Scholarship was established in memory of our Past President, dear friend, and colleague, Archer B. Battista. Colonel Battista had a deep love and devotion to the men and women who served in our armed forces and after thirty-three years of commissioned service as active duty and as a member of the United States Reserve Air Force, he retired in 2001 as a command pilot in the grade of Colonel. Upon completion of his active duty service, Colonel Battista graduated from Western New England University School of Law and practiced law from 1977 until 2013. Colonel Battista was instrumental in establishing a Veterans Treatment Court to address the unique situation of military veterans involved in the criminal justice system. After Battista's passing in 2016, the Colonel Archer B. Battista Veteran's Scholarship was established to financially assist veterans and active members of the military attend law school. Through this scholarship, his family and the Hampden County Bar Association hope to continue Colonel Battista's dedication to help members of the armed services.
The Children's Law Project program recognizes that children suffer emotionally, mentally and event financially when their parents engage in contested court proceedings. Through this program, attorneys are appointed to represent the children involved in contested custody and visitation matters pending in Hampden County Probate and Family Court. The child is the attorney's client and the attorney voices the child's position when parents or guardians cannot agree on what is best for the child.
