Lipsey is a frequent guest instructor at MCLE (Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education) on workers’ compensation issues and was the recent keynote speaker for the National Business Institute regarding social security disability advocacy.
Lipsey is a member of the Plymouth and Norfolk County Bar Associations and the workers' compensation sub-committee of the Mass Bar Association. Lipsey formerly served as the Chairman of the Massachusetts Bar Association Sub-Committee on Workers' Compensation. He is a frequent lecturer on workers' compensation issues and has appeared on WNTN as a commentator on workers' compensation.
A former Jewish Big Brother, Lipsey lives in Sharon, MA with his wife Marcie, an occupational therapist and certified teacher of the deaf, and two sons.
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to educate people about their rights and legal resources,” said Lipsey. “Very often people don’t understand the process and don’t realize that they can request a review and a hearing about disability. “
