Our founder and principal, Sandra Matrone Mack has been listed in the national Red Book directory for 30 years, one of a limited number of lawyers in RI to achieve this designation. Mack Law Associates is now listed as well, as the firm continues to actively represent clients as bond counsel and underwriter’s counsel.

As such, Mack Law is qualified to render bond opinions, in addition to performing ancillary functions such as preparation/review of documents and supervision of the transactional process. Sandra Mack’s extensive body of experience in public finance, for a varied list of clients, has been gained while serving as:
