Jayne B. Tyrrell, executive director of the Massachusetts Interest on Lawyers' Trust Accounts program, is the the June Access to Justice Member of the Month.

Tyrrell's dedication to the core values of the section inspires everyone who comes in contact with her," MBA President Edward W. McIntyre said.

Tyrrell has worked with IOLTA for nearly two decades. After first approving
IOLTA as a voluntary program in 1985, the Supreme Judicial Court made it mandatory in 1989. Tyrrell was hired as a consultant at that time to help with the transition of the new requirements of all participating attorneys to keep nominal, short-term client deposits in interest-bearing accounts. Following that transition, she accepted the offer to serve as executive director and 20 years later, remains passionate about her influential role.
