Jennifer LaBaire is a real estate and criminal defense attorney in Leominster. After working at a few law firms, both large and small, she decided to open her own firm, where she represents people buying or selling houses or businesses, and represents banks to finance purchases. She is also often in the Leominster and Fitchburg District Courts working as a bar advocate representing the indigent in criminal cases, and accepting private appointments for those defendants who do not qualify for court appointed counsel. Jennifer was selected as a Massachusetts Rising Star in 2010 for criminal defense by the Boston Superlawyers Magazine. She is the current President of the Northern Worcester County Bar Association and is a member of several other local bar associations.
She has served on The Arc Board of Directors since 2005. She is a past chair and member of The Arc Human Rights Committee. She has always felt strongly about advocating for the rights of individuals with disabilities but in the past few years she has had a renewed and continued passion upon learning that both her nephew and her cousin are autistic.
She and her husband Bill are quite busy taking care of their three children, Sarah, Wyatt and Reed. Although she does not really remember what free time is, someday when she has some free time she would like to get back to watching more football, reading, kayaking, biking and traveling.
