Twenty-seven attorneys from Burns & Levinson LLP have been selected for inclusion in the 2014 Massachusetts Super Lawyers®, Rhode Island Super Lawyers®, Massachusetts Rising Stars or Rhode Island Rising Stars. Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Super Lawyers selections are made annually using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys. Only five percent of lawyers in each state are selected to the Super Lawyers list and 2.5 percent to the Rising Stars list annually.
