Our team includes attorneys with diverse backgrounds, outstanding experience, and achievements. We are united by a bold and creative spirit and are committed to serving our clients. What sets Governo Law Firm apart is two-fold: (1) how well we understand each client's needs, and (2) what we actually do with this information to accomplish our client's goals. We assess the key factual, legal, and political implications to identify and recommend the ideal strategy to achieve optimal results. Our comprehensive risk management counseling is based on a thorough, nuanced, multi-dimensional approach rooted in sophisticated legal analysis and practical problem-solving.

Our commitment to staying on the cutting edge of legal, medical, technical, scientific, political, business, and even social developments is unparalleled and is evidenced by the many continuing education programs taught by our attorneys. We regularly publish articles and give national and local presentations on the topics most important to our clients. We have attained Martindale-Hubbell's highest rating (AV), and many of our attorneys have received the prestigious honor of being selected as New England Super Lawyers and Rising Stars.
