The Boston Bar Association has selected Arrowood LLP associate, Cathleen Augusto, for its 2021 Public Interest Leadership Program (PILP).

Dedicated to promoting civic engagement and public service, PILP focuses on advancing the leadership roles of lawyers in service to their community, their profession, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

After completing the 10-month program, Ms. Augusto will join the ranks of more than 200 accomplished PILP alumni.

An associate at Arrowood LLP since 2017, Ms. Augusto specializes in civil litigation with a focus on medical malpractice, personal injury, employment and commercial disputes. Prior to joining the firm, she successfully represented employees on breach of contract and Massachusetts Wage Act claims at trial. Ms. Augusto has also worked on complex unfair and deceptive trade practices (93A) claims, employment discrimination cases, shareholder derivative suits and legal malpractice cases.

Named a Super Lawyers Rising Star for civil litigation in 2019 and 2020, Ms. Augusto is a member of the Boston Bar Association and the Massachusetts Bar Association. She was appointed co-chair of the Boston Bar Association’s New Lawyers Forum in 2019.

An alumna of Boston College Law School, Ms. Augusto was featured in “Leaders in the Making,” a BC Law article about PILP’s 2021 class.

In her spare time, she volunteers with the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston.
