It is important to have a strong leader in the District Attorney’s office. The District Attorney’s position and staff can improve the protection and safety of all our citizens, especially the most vulnerable; our children and senior citizens.

About Michael

Michael Morrissey was born in Quincy, Massachusetts, the oldest child of Arthur and Marion Morrissey. Michael attended the Quincy Public School System and is a proud graduate of North Quincy High School class of 1972. After graduation, Michael attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where he earned a degree in American History and Political Science. He went on to further his education by earning a JD from Suffolk Law School (1985) and Masters in Public Administration from Western New England College (1981).

Michael was elected in 1977 to the Massachusetts House of Representatives as a Quincy State Representative and quickly earned a reputation of working tirelessly for his constituents. In 1992, Michael ran for State Senator in the Norfolk District (Quincy, Braintree, Holbrook, and Avon). Michael has chaired six major committees including the Committee on Public Safety. He served for 10 years on the Governor’s Anti-Crime Council, and also served on the Board of Directors of DOVE (Domestic Violence Ended) where he was instrumental in helping DOVE acquire their first shelter in Quincy.

During his tenure at the State House, Morrissey has worked hard to write and pass the laws that give District Attorneys the legal tools they need to prevent and prosecute crime. He has fought to protect seniors from fraud, to protect our children from sex offenders, and to toughen drunken driving and domestic violence laws. He authored one of the toughest laws against cocaine trafficking. He strongly supports tougher penalties for bullying whether in our schools or on the Internet. Michael authored the law to extend protection from bullying by cell phone or computer use. And, he has taken the lead to legally protect all consumers against fraud and identity theft. Morrissey wrote the State’s identification Law and was recently referred to as “Cyber Cop” for his work. Morrissey is the founding and managing partner of a law firm that has grown to over 50 people with offices in 3 states. The firm of Boyle, Morrissey & Campo, P.C. has earned a reputation as capable and aggressive trial attorneys. He knows how to effectively manage a team of talented attorneys and staff and manage tight budgets in tough economic times. He has hired and trained talented attorneys and has been a mentor to young attorneys including one who went on to become a District Attorney.

Morrissey is a lifelong resident of Quincy, Massachusetts. Morrissey and his wife, Joanne (Ross) have two children: Colby, a student at New England School of Law; and James, a 2010 graduate of Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Morrissey enjoys spending time with his family and is an avid sailor.
