Six Governo Law Firm Attorneys Named 2016 Massachusetts Super Lawyers and Rising Stars


We are pleased to announce the following Governo Law Firm attorneys have been selected for inclusion in the 2016 edition of Massachusetts Super Lawyers and Rising Stars: David Governo, Bryna Rosen Misiura, Nancy Kelly, Kendra Bergeron, John Gardella and Mark Hoover. Mr. Governo and Mr. Hoover have each been honored with the Super Lawyers distinction for ten years. Mrs. Misiura has been named a Super Lawyer for the past five consecutive years and Ms. Kelly for the past three consecutive years. In addition, this is Mrs. Bergeron's fourth consecutive year and Mr. Gardella's second consecutive year being selected as Rising Stars.

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 visit the People section of our website.
