Attorney Leo V. Boyle has had extraordinary successes. He can take credit for some of the largest settlements and verdicts in Massachusetts. But when Boyle talks about his craft – his addiction – the big wins are not the measure that he uses to evaluate his career. He says, “I mostly treasure the opportunities I’ve had to represent some incredibly courageous people. The satisfaction I get from my work is not related to size of the case so much as whether I’ve been able to make a difference in a deserving person’s life.”
Since the founding of the Boston law firm of Meehan, Boyle, Black & Bogdanow in 1985, Boyle has practiced exclusively as a plaintiffs’ trial lawyer and has developed a national reputation. He has been actively involved in the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and has held national office in the organization since 1996, including president from 2001-2002. Boyle also served as president of the Massachusetts Bar Association from 1990-1991, and he is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Boyle has given more 150 presentations on trial advocacy and tort law at educational programs sponsored by various legal organizations and institutions. He is a graduate of the Boston College Law School and earned his bachelor’s degree at Harvard University.
