Governo Law Firm Attorneys Honored as 2017 Massachusetts Super Lawyers and Rising Stars


We are pleased to announce that Governo Law Firm partners David Governo and Nancy Kelly have been selected for inclusion in the 2017 edition of New England Super Lawyers and attorney Alec Pine has been named a Massachusetts Rising Star. Mr. Governo has been recognized by Super Lawyers each year for more than a decade and Ms. Kelly has been recognized for each of the last four years. This is Mr. Pine's third consecutive year being named as a Rising Star.

Each year, no more than five percent of the attorneys in the state are selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers, and only 2.5 percent or fewer are named Rising Stars, a distinction awarded to attorneys 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing law for 10 or fewer years. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations, and peer evaluations. Candidates are evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, including verdicts and settlements; transactions; representative clients; experience; honors and awards; special licenses and certifications; position within law firm; bar and or other professional activity; pro bono and community service as a lawyer; scholarly lectures and writings; education and employment background; and other outstanding achievements.

We congratulate our attorneys on this distinction. To learn more about each attorney's background and areas of practice, please visit the People section of our website.
