Upon graduating in only her third year of high school, as a reward for her tireless work, she moved across the state to Boston. In Boston, Dianna L. Abdala attended Boston University in 1998 and took up a major in Economics. Skipping her last year once again, Abdala graduated and obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and continued immediately to law school. She enrolled in Suffolk University Law School and built her coursework around the criminal law and trying criminal cases. While at Suffolk Law, Attorney Abdala practiced law as a student attorney with the Suffolk Defenders and maintained a caseload of criminal matters while studying. She graduated after studying law for 3 years full time and immediately passed the Massachusetts Bar Examination. She is certified to practice law in the District, Superior, and Federal District Courts. Dianna L.

Abdala, who currently practices in Hampden County, has been a criminal attorney for 58 years. He served in the United States Armed Forces for 3 years and was on active duty during World War II in Europe. Upon his return home, he entered Boston University Law School and completed his studies. Following graduation, Attorney George S. Abdala went straight into private practice. While still in the beginning of his career, in December of 1974, he entered the District Attorney’s Office. Shortly thereafter, he was approached by the District Attorney of Hampden County, Matthew Ryan at the time, and was offered the position of first Assistant District Attorney of Hampden County. George Abdala accepted the appointment and for 14 years would prosecute cases for the State of Massachusetts. Following that 14 years, Attorney George Abdala would find himself back on the defense side with an extra set of tools, technique, and knowledge from both angles to utilize against the opposition. Approximately 40 years after leaving the District Attorney’s Office, Attorney George S. Abdala still tries criminal cases regularly and conducts his business passionately and with zeal in the Massachusetts court system. He most recently awarded the Honorable Kent B.
