New England Super Lawyers Recognizes 29 Drummond Woodsum Attorneys

Drummond Woodsum, one of northern New England’s premier law firms, is pleased to announce that 29 of its attorneys have been selected to the 2019 Super Lawyers – New England list.  Thirteen attorneys were named to the New England Super Lawyers list and another 16 ranked among New England’s Rising Stars – attorneys who are under 40 or have been in practice for 10 years or less.
Both lists recognize lawyers for their outstanding professional achievements.  Through a combination of peer nominations and independent research, Super Lawyers recognizes outstanding attorneys in more than 70 practice areas. Fewer than five percent of the lawyers in New England are selected to the Super Lawyers list and fewer than 2.5 percent to the Rising Stars list. The lists are published in the annual Super Lawyers Magazine—New England edition.
Below is the listing of attorneys from Drummond Woodsum who have been honored by New England Super Lawyers and Rising Stars and their respective practice areas for which they were recognized.
Congratulations to those who have been included for the first time:
James A. O’Shaughnessy, Amy Olfene and Jeana McCormick!
