Lisa was also selected as a Massachusetts “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers Magazine in 2013 and 2014.  She is currently a member of the Clinical Programs Advisory Board, and the Selection Committee for the Thomas J. Drinan Memorial Fellowship, both at Suffolk University Law School.  Her memberships include: Massachusetts Defense Lawyers Association (co-chair, Young Lawyers Division, 2013-14); Defense Research Institute; and the Rhode Island Bar Association.
