Matthew Peterson Named Among the 2023 Massachusetts Rising Stars by “Super Lawyers”

I am thrilled to announce that I have been named among this year’s rising stars in the state of Massachusetts by “Super Lawyers”. Super Lawyers is a website intended to give ratings for attorneys and law offices all over the country by taking into account peer recognition, customer satisfaction, and professional achievements within their practice area.

What Does it Mean to be Named a “Rising Star”?

Each year, Super Lawyers goes through a lengthy selection process to select both super lawyers and rising stars. For both awards, the criteria include the following:

  • Verdicts
  • Client Reviews
  • Community Service
  • Educational background
  • Experience

Only the top 2.5% of the nominated attorneys for each state are then named a rising star, so I am very proud to have been recognized in this way.

I am very passionate about what I do, because I like helping people. Whether you’re looking to gain citizenship, or you’ve just been charged with a crime, the legal system can be intimidating and at times, scary. That is why I am here to help, give your guidance, and reassure you along the way that I will do everything I can to secure the best outcome for you.

    • domestic violence
    • OUI

The court system is stressful, whether you’re being charged with a crime, being sued, suing someone, or fighting for your ability to stay and work in this country. You need someone who appreciates this and can dedicate the time not only to represent you effectively in court but to guide you through the process.
