Six Governo Law Firm Attorneys Named 2014 Super Lawyers and Rising Stars


We are pleased to announce that Governo Law Firm attorneys David Governo, Bryna Misiura, Jeniffer Carson, Nancy Kelly and Mark Hoover have been selected for inclusion in the 2014 edition of New England Super Lawyers and Kendra (Christensen) Bergeron has been named a Massachusetts Rising Star for the second year in a row. With 19 attorneys, Governo Law Firm has the distinction of close to one third of its attorneys holding the Super Lawyer status.

Each year, no more than 5 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 see the Attorneys section of our website.
