Meade G. Burrows (1954-2010)

A great lawyer, a great mentor and a great friend.
In memoriam: April 15, 1954 – July 21, 2010

Born in New York City in 1954, Meade earned his bachelor of arts from Binghamton University in 1976, and his law degree from the Boston University School of Law in 1979, the same year he was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar. After working for three years as a staff lawyer for Northern Mississippi Rural Legal Services, Burrows opened a private law practice in this city.  He was a past president of the Board of Directors for ServiceNet, Inc., and a member of the Northwestern District Attorney’s Civil Rights Advisory Committee.

“Meade was a gentleman both in and out of the courtroom.  He was widely respected for his quiet style and honesty.  He had a heart as big as the sky and did more than his share of pro-bono work for deserving clients who could not otherwise afford legal services.”  – Mikal M. Weiss
