Fitchburg, Mass., lawyer Edward P. Ryan Jr. is never one to shy away from the spotlight. Poised to become the president of the Massachusetts Bar Association Sept. 1, Ryan is accustomed to finding his words in the media, whether through his duties with the MBA or in his criminal and civil practice with the firm of O’Connor and Ryan, where he practices with partner John M. O’Connor and associate Eugene P. O’Donnell.

Most recently, Ryan was in the media’s radar again. He was appointed by the Committee for Public Counsel Services (CPCS) to represent Thomas S. Levesque, one of two homeless people charged with manslaughter in the highly publicized and emotionally charged case involving the deaths of six Worcester firefighters on Dec. 3, 1999.
