Kirsten Zwicker-Young, Esq., a partner at Conn Kavanaugh Rosenthal Peisch & Ford, LLP has been recognized as one of the 2021 The Top Women of Law named by Mass Lawyers Weekly.
This designation highlights outstanding achievements made by exceptional women lawyers. The nominations are reviewed by a panel of previous honorees to identify women pioneers, educators, trailblazers, and role models who have made tremendous professional strides and demonstrated great accomplishments in the legal field.
Zwicker-Young is an experienced trial attorney whose criminal defense practice evolved into one focused on Family Law after an officer she cross-examined relentlessly at trial later called her to handle his divorce. She now primarily handles cases involving high net worth individuals, complex business evaluations, and unique custody disputes, along with probate litigation such as guardianship, conservatorship, and administration of complex estates.
She chairs the Plymouth County Probate and Family Court Conciliation Program and serves as Vice President of the Plymouth County Bar Association, where she will step into the role of President this December. She volunteers time and resources to the Veterans Administration and mentors young attorneys.
“Kirsten Young is the third Conn Kavanaugh attorney to receive this honor,” says managing partner Tom Gallitano. “Both Carol Starkey, who leads the firm’s White Collar Criminal Defense group, and Erin Higgins, who leads the Professional Malpractice group, were so honored in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Kirsten is the total package – a tenacious advocate for her clients, an active leader in her local bar association, and a significant contributor and a mentor to many within the firm. I am proud of all of my colleagues and the high standards they uphold to deliver outstanding results for our clients.”
