Bennett & Belfort, P.C. is pleased to announce that Craig Levey has been selected by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly to receive the Excellence in the Law Award in the category of “Up and Coming” Lawyers. The “Up & Coming” category is a salute to the rising stars of the Massachusetts Bar who have been practicing for 10 years or less, yet have already distinguished themselves in the practice of law. The 26 award winners were selected based on achievement in the legal field, high peer recognition, community activities, and civil involvement.
Outside of his thriving law practice, Attorney Levey is on the Board of Directors of the Boston Police Foundation, a non-profit organization created to raise financial support for needed resources for the Boston Police Department. He is also on the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Alliance on Teenage Pregnancy, a non-profit organization that advocates to increase opportunities for youth, and empower young adults to make wise decisions on relationships, parenting, and life.
Attorney Levey is an active member of the Massachusetts Bar Association’s (MBA) Labor & Employment Section Council, where he is co-chair of the 2017 annual conference. At the MBA, Levey co-founded and currently co-moderates the “Feed Your Mind: Legal Lunch” series, a monthly program that discusses commercial litigation topics. Levey is also an active member with the New England – Canada Business Council, an organization that assists to facilitate relationships between businesses in New England and Canada.
The Excellence in the Law Award dinner will be held on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel in Boston. The ceremony will also recognize individuals in the following categories: Excellence in Alternative Dispute Resolution, Firm Administration / Operations, Marketing, Paralegal Work, and Pro Bono.
