Boston's Shepard Law Welcomes Seasoned Trial Lawyer Edwin L. Wallace to the Firm

Mr. Wallace Brings Over 35 Years of Asbestos and Products Liability Experience to the Firm

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 1, 2015) - Shepard Law Firm announced today that noted trial lawyer and mediator, Edwin L. Wallace, has joined the firm as Of Counsel. Attorney Wallace, a former partner at the Thornton Law Firm, has achieved notable success throughout his career as a plaintiff's attorney, securing numerous high profile results in products liability, construction accident, automobile accident and toxic tort exposure cases. Wallace has obtained multiple million dollar verdicts and settlements in courts in this Commonwealth and across the United States.

Attorney Wallace currently serves as a mediator with the American Arbitrators Association and has been appointed as a Special Master by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Justices. He has served on the Board of Governors of the Massachusetts Bar Association, the American Association for Justice, the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys and is the former President of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys.

A popular and highly sought after lecturer, Attorney Wallace frequently speaks on a variety of trial-related subjects for organizations across the country including the above-referenced organizations as well as Massachusetts Continuing Legal Association, Suffolk University Law School and the National Business Institute. He is a graduate of Suffolk University Law School with an undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts.

Attorney Wallace has been honored as one of the "Best Lawyers in America" as well as a "Massachusetts Super Lawyer," and most notably as one of the "Top 100 Trial Lawyers" by ATLA. In 2013, Attorney Wallace was named "Lawyer of the Year" in New England, for personal injury, by Best Lawyers.

"Ed Wallace has an excellent reputation and is well known for his abilities as a trial lawyer both in Boston and throughout the country. His depth and breadth of experience in products liability litigation and as a mediator are the perfect complement to our existing practice and we anticipate that our clients will benefit immensely from his counsel," said firm founder, Michael Shepard.

Attorney Wallace said, "I am looking forward to working with Mike and his talented group of professionals at Shepard Law. It's a unique time to be a trial lawyer in Massachusetts, as a new law allows attorneys to voir dire the jury prior to being seated. Also of great significance is the ability of the plaintiff's attorney to request of the jury a specific sum of damages to be awarded to the plaintiff. Neither voir dire or the request of damages have been available in Massachusetts until now."
