For many years, our firm and its lawyers have been recognized for our accomplishments and skills by lawyer rating services like Martindale-Hubbell, Chambers USA-America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, Best Lawyers in America, U.S. News and World Report-Best Lawyers and Best Law Firms, and SuperLawyers. These recognitions are very humbling and gratifying because the ratings are based on third-party validation by independent research, client referees and peer reviews. The rating services rank law firms and lawyers on specific qualities such as technical legal ability, professional conduct and client service. It is rewarding for our boutique firm to be ranked in the same tier as the largest firms. Some recognitions are totally unexpected like when John Shea was selected as Boston 2013 Environmental Law Lawyer of the Year. We are careful not to believe our press, rest on our laurels, or wear our super hero capes in public. We pledge to work hard with the highest ethical standards, to continue our winning tradition and to enjoy your trust and praise for years to come.
