Super Lawyers has named several attorneys from Higgins, Cavanagh & Cooney as 2021 Super Lawyers and another as a 2021 Rising Star.

Only five percent of the lawyers in Rhode Island receive the Super Lawyer designation in any single year. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in each state obtain the designation of a Rising Star yearly.

2021 Super Lawyers

James A. Ruggieri (Personal Injury – Products, Insurance Coverage, General Litigation, Employment Litigation.)

Paul S. Callaghan (Construction Litigation, Insurance Coverage, Civil Litigation, Transportation, Maritime.)

Peter E. Garvey (Personal Injury – General, Professional Liability, Insurance Coverage, General Litigation, Business Litigation.)

2021 Super Lawyers’ Rising Star

Super Lawyers is the national rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.

The selection process for Rising Stars is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.

James Ruggieri, Paul Callaghan and Peter Garvey are partners with the firm. Brian Haynes joined Higgins, Cavanagh & Cooney as a litigation attorney in 2017.

Congratulations one and all!
