Lynn (pop. 90,000) features a beautiful waterfront that includes Long Beach, Lynn Beach, King’s Beach, and Lynn Shore Drive. Lynn’s natural beauty is also present in the Lynn Woods – the biggest city park in New England – where you can hike, bike, ski, and horseback ride on more than 30 miles of trails. Lynn Woods is also home to Dungeon Rock, an underground tunnel rich with pirate lore and rumored to still contain pirate booty. Well-known Lynn natives include criminal defense lawyer F. Lee Bailey, and former Red Sox all-star Tony Conigliaro.
Lynn, with a population that is close to 100,000, was originally settled in 1629 and incorporated in 1631. There were many incarnations of the town and its name, but it became an economic force partly by becoming the shoe manufacturer for the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. With the railroad arriving in 1838, Lynn became more interconnected to the developing economy. General Electric was formed between Edison Electric in New York and Thompson Houston Electric, of Lynn, Massachusetts.
Today Lynn’s median income is significantly below the state average as it has lost some industry. However, General Electric Aviation remains as does the West Lynn Creamery. The political establishment has worked hard to get rid of any bad reputation that the city has; a campaign called the “City of Firsts” was established pointing out that Lynn had the first fire engine, the first jet engine and the first baseball game under electric light!
Lynn is in Essex County. Attorney Neil Burns began his practice, in 1985, in Essex County. The Superior Courts in Essex County are in Salem, Lawrence, and Newburyport. Lynn is serviced by the Lynn District Court which services Lynn, Marblehead, Nahant, Saugus and Swampscott. There is also a Housing Court Department in Essex County, however, it does not service Lynn. Landlord tenant cases would go to the Lynn District Court. Burns & Jain have appeared in all of the above courts.
