Michael H. Theodore and Shawn M. Masterson, attorneys at law firm Cohn & Dussi, were recognized by Super Lawyers for 2023, while Andrew B. Glaab, an associate at the firm, was selected to the 2023 Rising Stars list. Only 5% of lawyers are named to the Super Lawyers List each year. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations by practice area.
Theodore, a partner at the Cohn & Dussi, leads the firm’s creditors’ rights and bankruptcy department and is a member of the firm’s litigation department. He represents lenders, financial institutions, equipment lessors and debt buyers, in creditors’ rights, workouts, commercial and bankruptcy matters. His civil litigation practice also includes representing small businesses in contractual disputes. Theodore has experience in commercial foreclosures and asset-based financing and has represented the interests of bankruptcy trustees.
Masterson, a senior associate in the firm’s litigation department, has 20 years of experience in creditors’ rights, particularly in residential mortgage defaults. He has represented clients in appellate courts across New England, including the First Circuit Court of Appeals and the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel. Masterson, who practices in the firm’s Providence, RI, office, is also a certified mediator with a track record of resolving cases through alternative dispute resolution, including divorce and divorce mediation.
Each year, no more than 2.5% of the lawyers in a state are selected by Super Lawyers to receive the Rising Stars honor. All attorneys named to the Rising Stars list must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.
Glaab, who heads Cohn & Dussi’s in-house collections group, is a fellow of the 2022-2023 class of the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA) Leadership Academy.
