July 28—GLASTONBURY — Attorney Erin Boatman was recently presented with an award from the Connecticut Bar Association.

Boatman, who lives in town, was given the “Service to the Public and Bar Association Award” by the association’s “Young Lawyers Section” during the group’s annual executive committee retreat. The award was one of four that recognized attorneys who “demonstrated outstanding achievement during the course of the past bar year.”

Boatman works at The Law Offices of Patrick W. Boatman LLC in East Hartford. Her areas of practice include appellate, bankruptcy, business, commercial, consumer protection, contracts, federal practice, litigation, personal injury, real estate and zoning and land use.

The association noted that Boatman “showed her dedication to serving the community by spearheading the efforts to plan and execute the section’s clothing drive to benefit Dress for Success. The drive collected numerous women’s business suits and professional work attire to donate to the charity.”

The association also noted that Boatman “worked seamlessly with her counterparts in the commercial law and bankruptcy section to collaborate on the planning of several successful education programs.” She was appointed to lead the senior section’s continuing legal education committee.

The Young Lawyers Section’s goals are the promotion of justice, the encouragement of public service and the promotion of diversity and education of young lawyers and newly admitted practitioners. The section also serves a valuable social and networking role in introducing young lawyers to each other and assisting them in their transition into the Connecticut legal practice. The section includes all members of the CBA who are 37-years-old or younger or who have been admitted to the bar for less than six full bar years.
