Four Attorneys Join Bulkley Richardson

Bulkley Richardson, with offices in Springfield and Hadley, welcomes four attorneys to the firm.

  • Matthew Dziok earned a J.D. from Western New England University School of Law where he graduated second in his class.  He also earned a B.A. in Criminal Justice from the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
  • Briana Dawkins is a graduate of Western New England University School of Law and earned a B.A. from Curry College, summa cum laude.  She was an intern at the U.S. Department of Labor and the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities.
  • Shriti Shah graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Law.  She received a Master’s of Management Studies in 2007 and a Bachelor of Commerce in 2004, both from the University of Mumbai.
  • Jacob Kosakowski is a graduate of Suffolk University School of Law and earned a B.A. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, summa cum laude.  He served as an intern for Chief Justice Paul Dawley and the Child Abuse Unit of the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office.

Kevin Maynard, chair of the firm’s Hiring Committee, comments, “The hiring of these four talented lawyers is consistent with the firm’s ongoing strategy for continued growth.  Briana, Shriti and Jacob are all graduates of Bulkley Richardson’s enhanced Summer Associate Program so we had the pleasure of working with them last summer.  And Matt’s experience as a private investigator and clerking for an area law office will help him integrate well into our litigation practice.  We are confident they will each make significant contributions to the firm.”
