We’re proud to announce that our own Dino M. Colucci has been selected to appear in the 2017 edition of “The Best Lawyers in America®” legal referral guide.

The Best Lawyers in America®” exists to help members of the public find the top lawyers in their area. Established attorneys are asked if they had to choose an attorney to represent themselves, their colleagues or their loved ones, who would they want in their corner.

“I’m grateful to receive this award and accept it on behalf of everyone at our firm who works tirelessly to help the clients we’re honored to represent,” said Dino M. Colucci.

Lawyers can not vote for themselves, partners or family members. The honor is based on merit and attorneys do not pay any sort of fee to appear in the listing.

This will be the 23rd edition of the publication and Dino M. Colucci is listed in the section for personal injury litigation. The first edition of “The Best Lawyers in America®” was published in 1983.

Good work Dino, we’re glad to have your name out in front on our shingle.

 

Death of 7 year old Kyzr Willis of Dorchester

We were saddened to read that 7-year-old Kyzr Willis from Dorchester

Wrongful Death Summer Camp in Boston

We were saddened to read that 7-year-old Kyzr Willis from Dorchester recently wandered away from a daycare program only to be found dead hours later.

Having handled these cases in the past I can honestly say that they are nothing short of heart wrenching.

Our firm was recently responsible for handling the case of a 2 year old boy (also from Dorchester) who wandered away from a daycare center and met the same unfortunate fate.  The bitter truth is that these cases should never occur.

There is no reason for any child to slip away from those responsible for their care.  Never …  People are quick to speak badly of lawyers, and there are members of our profession that do harm its overall reputation, but the truth is that only a lawyer will get to the bottom of this situation and hold accountable those responsible.

The only real good that can come out of any tragedy is to shine a light on what went wrong, who is responsible, and to make certain that it never happens again.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to this little boy’s family and friends for their loss.

More information can be found about the case from the Boston Globe.
