Skoler, Abbott & Presser, P.C., the leading labor and employment law firm serving employers in the greater Springfield area, today announced that Partner Susan G. Fentin will be honored at The Western New England Law Review and Alumni Relations Reception with the Law School’s Distinguished Law Review Alumni Award.

“Susan is everything we hope the Law Review stands for – intellectually rigorous, hard-working, thoughtful, creative, compassionate, generous with her knowledge and time and devoted to the law,” said the Western New England University School of Law Dean and Professor of Law, Eric J. Gouvin.

Attorney Fentin graduated magna cum laude from Western New England University School of Law in 1996, where she was editor-in-chief of The Western New England College Law Review. She has been selected to the Super Lawyer’s list since 2008, and since 2010, she has been named one of the top labor and employment attorneys in Massachusetts by the prestigious Chambers and Partners rating organization. In 2015, she was named one of the Top Women of Law by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. A resident of Conway, Attorney Fentin joined Skoler, Abbott and Presser, P.C., in 1999 after practicing for several years with the Labor and Employment department of a large Hartford, Connecticut law firm; she was made a partner of the firm in 2004.

In addition to her professional accomplishments, Fentin has also made community service a high priority. She is a past board member and past president of WFCR-New England Public Radio, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, and Riverside Industries, in addition to serving on the board of The Academy of Music Theatre.

“I am deeply honored to be recognized by The Western New England University Law Review,” said Attorney Susan G. Fentin. “The Western New England Law Review has a long-standing reputation of developing strong legal research and writing skills, and I am proud to return to celebrate the many achievements of the law review alumni as a whole.”

The Western New England Law Review, established in 1978, is published by students at the Western New England University School of Law. The board of editors and junior staff consist of students who are selected based on academic performance or on their performance in a write-on competition. Each issue of the law review typically consists of essays and articles, written by legal scholars and practitioners, and student “notes,” written by law review members during their first year on the Law Review. As of 2013, the Western New England Law Review is a fully digitalized publication.

The Law Review Alumni Reception was hosted on Wednesday, March 30 at The Blake Law Center in Springfield.
