BFF Lunch with Judge Margaret Guzman | Corridor 9/495 | February 2024

On February 20th, 2024 Judge Margaret Guzman was the featured guest speaker at the Business Forward Female luncheon.

“When she was teenager, Margaret Guzman wrote a letter to the Boston Red Sox offering to be the team’s first batgirl, just for a day. Though team manager Don Zimmer gently declined her request, Margaret, in a couple of paragraphs, had made a compelling case for herself. It was far from the last argument she would deliver-or consider.

As a public defender and then as a private-practice lawyer in Worcester, Guzman proved to be a fierce advocate for her clients, someone you’d want on your side in the courtroom. Later, as a Massachusetts District Court judge, she carefully weighed the evidence and the arguments presented to her before rendering decisions from the bench in courtrooms throughout the state.

She was very good at her job and could easily have kept at it until retirement. Then the President of the United States came calling. On March 3, 2023, after being nominated by President Biden for a seat on the federal bench and confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Margaret received her commission as a United States District Judge, and she made history as the first person of Hispanic heritage to serve as a federal judge in Massachusetts.”
