BU Law congratulates its 2007 “Super Lawyers”

This year, New England Super Lawyers and Massachusetts Super Lawyers have honored several BU Law alumni and staff members.  Each year, these special editions of Law & Politics, in conjunction with Boston Magazine, publish a list of the best lawyers in the region.  These exceptional attorneys are determined by a rigorous, four-step selection process. 

While only five percent of the over 63,000 lawyers in New England are listed in New England Super Lawyers, one of our own, Nancy Shilepsky (’78), beat the odds even further to land the magazine’s cover.  Shilepsky’s overwhelming desire to win every case, coupled with the admiration of her peers, earned her the cover and a feature story in this year’s edition.

Congratulations to alumni who made the top 100 Massachusetts Super Lawyers 2007:

  • David A. Bunis ('87) of Dwyer & Collora
  • Mark M. Christopher (LL.M. '89) of Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge
  • Michael M. Davis (LL.M. '70) of Sullivan & Worcester
