Hanson Bridgett’s Larry Cirelli Named John J. Meehan Alumni Fellow (May 2, 2011)

Hanson Bridgett LLP is pleased to announce that Lawrence M. Cirelli, partner in the firm’s Litigation Section, has been named the 2010-2011 John J. Meehan Alumni Fellow by the University of San Francisco School of Law. He received his J.D. from the school in 1984. 

“Larry’s recognition by USF is well-deserved; his contributions to the greater San Francisco legal community distinguish him on a regular basis,” said Andrew Giacomini, Hanson Bridgett Managing Partner. “As a firm, Hanson Bridgett fully supports Larry’s commitment to giving back, and we applaud his successful work in mentoring up-and-coming attorneys.” 

The John J. Meehan Alumni Fellow Program at the University of San Francisco School of Law was established in 1998 to recognize a distinguished alumnus who has contributed to the growth and development of future lawyers, and who has served as a mentor to the profession. 

“Larry is a role model for providing the support that our students and graduates need, particularly in these difficult times,” said USF School of Law Dean Jeffrey Brand, “Larry helps instill a sense of the ‘possible’, so critical to our students who want to be ethical, skilled professionals capable of making a difference. Those are qualities that define Larry and we honor him for his generosity of time and spirit.” Attorney Cirelli was honored in a ceremony led by Dean Brand. 

“USF School of Law graduates are known for their ability to hit the ground running on day one of their careers,” said attorney Cirelli, John J. Meehan Alumni Fellow. “I benefited from this hands-on approach when I was a student, and I’m happy to play a role in ensuring that the students continue to have access to helpful mentors.”
