GREAT BARRINGTON — Prominent attorney Edward G. McCormick has resigned from the Massachusetts Bar Association, surrendering his license to practice law as a result of disciplinary sanction.
The Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers accepted McCormick’s resignation on Feb. 5, according to the board’s office.
Legal experts told the Record that McCormick chose to surrender his license rather than risk being disbarred from the association following disciplinary hearings conducted by the board of overseers.
McCormick began practicing law in 1971, specializing in real estate, estate planning and business. At the height of his career he was the powerful “go-to guy” to get permission from local boards.
