Neil Burns Awarded Massachusetts Superlawyer Distinction for 2010
Once again, I thank my colleagues who have honored me with the nomination as a 2010 Massachusetts Superlawyer. Frankly, it is the lawyers that nominated me that are the super ones! The only path to this honor is first, and foremost, utmost attention to aggressively and zealously representing our clients interests.
Second, I could not undertake all of the work necessary without a fantastic staff, Attorney Thiadora A. Pina and Legal Assistant Caroline L. Lorenz. Furthermore, working effectively for victims of personal injury, and legal malpractice, requires a commitment and training that I am fortunate to have.
I also want to congratulate Attorney Keith P. Slattery, who worked diligently in this office for our clients for over 8 years. He was nominated as one of the Superlawyer Rising Stars. Only 2.5% of lawyers in Massachusetts can qualify for this distinction. Keith Slattery certainly was a star performer while working diligently for our clients here in Boston and we will him well in his own practice in Melrose, Massachusetts.
