202 Law Link

Rhode Island Monthly is proud to showcase and celebrate our second annual Professional Excellence in Law awards. Nominated and chosen by their peers, these honorees exemplify the leading local lawyers in their respective areas of practice, from general counsel and personal injury to civil litigation and criminal defense.

Rhode Island Monthly asked Rhode Island licensed lawyers to vote for their peers in a range of law practice areas. Rhode Island Monthly contracted DataJoe Research to conduct the survey using an online ballot for collecting, vetting and tallying votes. Any lawyer who has been disciplined for an infraction by the state regulatory board was excluded from the results.

Final note. We recognize that there are many good lawyers who are not shown in this representative list. This is only a sampling of the huge array of talented professionals within the region. Inclusion in the list is based on the opinions of responding lawyers in the region. We take time and energy to ensure fair voting, although we understand that the results of this survey nomination and Internet research campaign are not an objective metric. We certainly do not discount the fact that many, many good and effective lawyers may not appear on the list.

Disclaimers. DataJoe uses best practices and exercises great care in assembling content for this list. DataJoe does not warrant that the data contained within the list are complete or accurate. DataJoe does not assume, and hereby disclaims, any liability to any person for any loss or damage caused by errors or omissions herein whether such errors or omissions result from negligence, accident, or any other cause. All rights reserved. No commercial use of the information in this list may be made without written permission from DataJoe.

The Lawyer: Matthew J. Leonard, Esq. of Salter McGowan Sylvia and Leonard, Inc.
The Area of Practice: Elder Law, Estate Planning, Estate Administration and Transactions
The Challenge: Having access to clients in skilled nursing settings and hospitals posed a huge challenge. Executing estate planning documents requires notaries and witnesses, and with the barring of witnesses, it made execution of these documents nearly impossible. This caused added stress for families needing to make emergency appointments of Powers of Attorney or shifting of assets.
The Adjustment: The medical professionals were wonderful in their willingness to assist, however, they are not notaries nor do they have the capacity to explain the documents. We were relegated to witness signing through windows while on the phone. We also petitioned governmental authorities to suspend the witness requirements to these documents and allow for virtual witnessing and notary. Thankfully, that approval to allow virtual witness and notary was granted.

The Lawyer: John E. Bulman 
of Pierce Atwood, LLP
The Area of Practice: Arbitration, Mediation and Construction
The Challenge: Face-to-face collaboration with clients and fellow lawyers is, of course, limited, and arbitrations and mediations have been postponed or restructured. These limitations require adoption of new means of addressing client and party needs, including virtual meetings, arbitrations and mediations. This has been the principal effect on my practice.
The Adjustment: I have learned to use virtual meeting platforms that ensure client and party confidential information, and that allow large arbitrations and mediations to proceed.

The Lawyer: Anthony R. Leone of Leone Law, LLC
The Area of Practice: We represent injury clients and their families, particularly people injured or killed because of negligence in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
The Challenge: Our firm was prepared to work remotely. We already had in place the basic tools to work from home. Our team communicates daily and our answering service handles and routes client calls. It is difficult not being able to meet face to face with clients, but Zoom and similar services have been very helpful. The biggest challenge has been getting documents notarized. The governor’s executive order allowing remote notarization will be a big help.
The Adjustment: Patience and creative thinking. We are taking things one day at a time and addressing each new challenge as it comes up.

The Lawyer: Melody A. Alger 
of Alger Law LLC
The Area of Practice: Civil Litigation
The Challenge: A significant segment of my practice is serving as an arbitrator or mediator. While the number of new appointments has been reduced 
by more than 50 percent, the ability to conduct previously scheduled hearings via Zoom or teleconference has been a huge benefit.
The Adjustment: I’ve offered alternate platforms to in-person hearings or meetings. To convince litigators — many of whom tend to be older, technology-averse and paper-dependent — 
to transition their practice to online 
or telephonic platforms has been challenging, requiring test runs, training sessions and instructional memos.
