We are proud to announce that our attorney, Hanishi T. Ali, has been recently appointed by Governor Deval L. Patrick to serve as a State Commissioner on the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women (MCSW).

Hanishi T. Ali is a founding partner at Mithras Law Group and practices international business and immigration law. Hanishi represents clients’ interests nationally and internationally. Hanishi is also a qualified solicitor in England and Wales, and in Scotland and is a member of the American Immigration lawyers association, American Bar Association, New York Bar Association, Boston Bar Association, International Bar Association, The Law Society of England and Wales, and the Law Society of Scotland. 

Hanishi also serves as legal counsel and a board member of non-profit associations and has received a Citation from the President of the Massachusetts Senate and a Citation from Carolyn Dykema on behalf of the Massachusetts House of Representatives for public service and civic leadership.

Attorney Ali says she’s both honored and humbled by the appointment and is looking forward to serving on the Commission.

The mission of the Commission is to advance women toward full equality in all areas of life and to promote rights and opportunities for all women.  The Commission exists to provide a permanent, effective voice for women across Massachusetts.  The Commission stands for fundamental freedoms, basic human rights, and the full enjoyment of life for all women throughout their lives.

The Commission provides a permanent, effective voice for Massachusetts women and is comprised of 19 diverse members who are appointed by the Governor, Senate President, Speaker of the House of Representatives and the Caucus of Women Legislators. The MCSW was legislatively created in May 1988 and became operational in early 1999.
