Willowbend Country Club to Host Acclaimed Lawyer F. Lee Bailey

MASHPEE- Members of the Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee will host nationally acclaimed lawyer F. Lee Bailey and guest speaker Casey Sherman, as part of this years ‘2018 Honoree Ceremony’.

One of Bailey’s most profound clients was Albert deSalvo, also known as the ‘Boston Strangler’, who confessed to the murder of Sherman’s aunt a few decades ago.

“Bailey and I have been on opposite sides for several decades and we’ve debated each other on national television,… in columns, and articles. I had the chance to meet… [him] a few years ago at Willowbend, at first I was a little reluctant to do that, but when we sat down… [we] spent three hours together. I came away with a great respect for him,” says Sherman.

Born and raised in Waltham, Massachusetts, Lee attended Harvard College but dropped out in 1952 to enlist in the United States Marine Corps where he served as a jet fighter pilot and also as a squadron legal officer.

After the military, Bailey briefly returned to Harvard before being admitted to Boston University’s School of Law, where he gained the highest GPA in the school’s history.

Events are set to get underway August 26th at 5:00pm. The evening will begin with a 45-minute cocktail party with appetizers, followed by a fireside chat.

At the fireside talk, “I’ll be asking him questions about the cases that he has been involved with and then we are going to be opening it up to the audience at the end of the night for a Q&A, and it should be a fascinating evening,” adds Sherman.
