October 19, 2023


Boston, MA, Oct. 19, 2023 – Burns & Levinson attorneys –Timothy Conlon and Lisa Cukier have been selected for inclusion in the 2024 Lawdragon 500 Leading Family Lawyers. According to Lawdragon, “the skill needed to help people through divorce and other life changes requires strength, grace and wisdom” and “these are the lawyers who can help you hold on when times seem they can’t get worse, and to protect children, families and assets that can easily be damaged often beyond repair in the hands of less wise counsel.”

Tim Conlon is a partner in the firm’s Divorce & Family Law, where he focuses his practice on family law conflicts such as divorce, child custody, visitation, child/spousal support, interstate relocation, complex property division and more. In addition to divorce matters, Conlon has worked extensively with child sexual abuse victims and their family members in advocating for just compensation from predators and abusers, as well as their employers. He has an impressive record of success in securing compensation from organizations (i.e., schools and religious institutions) that employ sexual predators and is currently representing several former student-athletes in a high-profile Rhode Island case involving former teacher and coach, Aaron Thomas. Conlon was named a “2022 Lawyer of the Year” by Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly and has been named “Lawyer of the Year” four times by Best Lawyers in America for Family Law over the past nine years, among many other awards. Conlon received his J.D. from Vanderbilt University School of Law and his B.A. from Brown University.

Lisa Cukier is Co-Chair of the Private Client Group and Chair of the Fiduciary Litigation Group at Burns & Levinson, where she splits her family law practice between complex strategic family matters involving high net worth families and individuals, including trust and estate litigation. She has a niche family law practice in concierge trusteeship, guardianship and conservatorship for individuals who have significant assets and reputations to protect, and who are experiencing diminished capacity. Cukier also acts as a private adjudicator for creative resolution of challenging custody and guardianship and trust disputes. She has been named to Boston Magazine’s Top Lawyers list for Divorce and Family Law (2021-2023), Best Lawyers in America for Family Law (2010-2023), and a Divorce, Trusts & Estates Trailblazer by The National Law Journal, among many other awards. She received her J.D. from Suffolk University Law School and her B.A. from Northeastern University.
