In October, firm founder Walter Prince visited the Roxbury Defenders office. He notes, “I had the privilege of meeting with the three Prince Fellows. We had a great conversation. I enjoyed learning how some things have dramatically changed, and how some have remained the same. He adds “ I’m deeply moved by the generosity of the firm for creating the Prince Fellows program and want to thank firm management for its impressive leadership and vision. Needless to say that I am so proud of Prince Lobel for its commitment to effective legal representation for all people in the Roxbury community.”

In 2019, the firm introduced the Walter P. Prince Fellowship, which was created to honor the legacy of firm co-founder Walter Prince, whose early career included work in the Public Defender Division in Roxbury. Prince Lobel joined forces with the Massachusetts Committee for Public Counsel Services, underwriting the fellowship position for a promising attorney who will serve as a trial attorney in the Roxbury, West Roxbury, and Dorchester courts for one year. “This fellowship paves the way for a very bright and talented young lawyer to get a good start in the profession and in providing quality legal services to indigent clients,” notes Walter Prince.
