Five Tarlow Breed Hart & Rodgers P.C. associates chosen as Rising Stars in Boston Magazine’s “Super Lawyers” issue

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

BOSTON, MASS. - As part of the Massachusetts Super Lawyers segment in its November 2009 issue, Boston Magazine recognized five associates from Boston-based Tarlow Breed Hart & Rodgers, P.C. (TBHR) as “Rising Stars”.  Those selected include: Jennifer A. Civitella Hilario, of Somerville, previously named in 2008; Michael Dominick, of Boston; John D. Finnegan, of Pelham, New Hampshire, previously named in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008; Terrence M. Schwab, of Natick, previously named in 2008; and Emily C. Shanahan, of Wellesley, previously named in 2008.

Rising Star selections are based on a statewide survey of more than 37,000 attorneys.  Candidates must be under the age of 40 and have been in practice for 10 years or less. Attorneys are evaluated based on peer recognition and professional achievement and then grouped and ranked by practice area.  Those with the highest point totals are selected.

“We built our firm for the long haul.  Doing that means retaining the best young legal talent out there,” said Richard P. Breed III, a member of the firm’s management committee. “So, while I know it’s personally gratifying to Jennifer, Michael, John, Terry and Emily to achieve this honor, the partners take even more pride and satisfaction in their selection because we’re not only thrilled for our co-workers, we’re growing future leaders of our firm.”
