 Justice Charlie McLaughlin.

Charlie McLaughlin was a Brookline Boulevard figurehead for many years, first with the McLaughlin Insurance Agency and then, from 1985 to 2010, as the District Justice of the 19th Ward. For sixteen years, from his office at 736 Brookline Boulevard, Charlie handled his legal duties as well as chairing the Neighborhood Blockwatch Program. He was an active member of the Brookline Chamber of Commerce and a good friend to so many. His office door was always open and you could always get an honest opinion.
