Sabin Willett, Esq. practiced law in Boston for many years as a trial and appellate litigator at Bingham McCutchen and Morgan Lewis. Before retiring at the end of 2022, he specialized in bankruptcy and insolvency litigation. A fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy, he frequently appeared in federal trial and appellate courts, and regularly published in legal journals.
His broad pro bono practice included a number of successful habeas cases for Guantanamo detainees, and a suit resulting in the release of an Iranian doctor detained in the government’s “Muslim Ban” in early 2017. Sabin also joined the defense team representing Bowe Bergdahl, an American POW brutalized by the Taliban for four years, and then, after the Obama administration obtained his release in a POW swap, court martialed for desertion under the Trump administration.
He has published several novels, all sensibly forgotten now.
Sabin and his wife Marta live in Boston, but spend a good amount of time at their farm in southern Vermont, where Marta and her sister operate Gammelgården, a Pownal, Vermont micro-creamery that produces skyr, a (delicious!) cultured milk product. Sabin enjoys skiing, cycling, and grandchildren.
