Remembering Paul Kane

Sadly, we have somber news to share. Last week, we learned that a long-time friend of VLP, Paul M. Kane Esq., passed away. 

For over 15 years, Paul anonymously sponsored Senior Partners for Justice (SPJ) luncheons, allowing SPJ members and other volunteers to enjoy the benefit of gathering monthly and learning from expert presenters. He mentored many of SPJ’s early volunteers. It was their great fortune to learn from this brilliant lawyer.

“He was a dear personal friend,” says Judge Edward Ginsburg, “and a strong supporter of Senior Partners for Justice. Not only was Paul a good and loyal friend, but he was also the co-founder of the legal aid clinic at Boston College. He was an early advocate of access to justice for all.” 

His kindness and legacy will not be forgotten, and we will carry the lessons Paul taught us in our hearts as we mourn his passing.  

Thank you and stay well,
