Richard Cohen Named 2014 Honorary Fellow

Richard A. Cohen
Richard A. Cohen Richard Cohen, longtime executive director of the Disabilities Rights Center of NH, was named the 2014 NH Bar Foundation Honorary Fellow at the NH Bar Foundation Fellows Reception on March 7, 2014.

Cohen is a national leader in advocacy and policy work for individuals with disabilities, dating back to the beginning of his career when, as an attorney for NH Legal Assistance, he served as lead counsel in the class-action suit that forced the state to move services for the developmentally disabled from institutions to community-based agencies, and triggered the closing of the Laconia State School. Earlier this year, the DRC, led by Cohen, reached a settlement with the state aimed at improving community-based mental health services.

Recipients of Justice Grants also were recognized at the reception.

Make Your IOLTA Dollars Count More

It really makes a difference where you have your IOLTA account! Your IOLTA deposits earn substantially more if you use one of the Leadership Banks that support the New Hampshire Bar Foundation's mission by paying 2 percent or more on IOLTA deposits.

Now, banks paying at least 1 percent also are being specially recognized as Partner Banks. Find out more about Leadership and Partner Banks.

IOLTA has generated $30 million for civil legal services and public education over its 30-year history. Find out more about IOLTA.
