Four Governo Law Firm Attorneys Awarded Super Lawyer Honor


We are pleased to announce that Governo Law Firm attorneys David Governo, Bryna Misiura, Jeniffer Carson, and John Gardella have been selected for inclusion in the 2012 edition of New England Super Lawyers. With 19 attorneys, Governo Law Firm has the distinction of over 20 percent of its attorneys holding the Super Lawyer status.

Mr. Governo, the firm’s founder and managing partner, has been recognized in Super Lawyers in 2004 and every year from 2007 to the present. Ms. Carson, also a partner, has been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers, an honor that she has received every year since 2005. Mr. Gardella, an associate, is named as a Rising Star for the third year, having received the same honor in 2008 and 2011.

Only 5% or fewer of the attorneys in each state are selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers, and only 2.5% 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 see the Attorneys section of our website.
