Powerhouse Trial Lawyer Leads Newest Location

(Providence, RI) Leading national law firm, Wood, Smith, Henning & Berman is pleased to announce the opening of its newest office location in the vibrant city of Providence, Rhode Island. This expansion marks a significant milestone in our ongoing dedication to delivering exceptional legal services to clients across New England and beyond.

Under the leadership of powerhouse trial attorney Luana DiSarra Scavone, WSHB's Rhode Island location will provide a comprehensive range of legal services across various practice areas. Stewart Reid, firmwide managing partner, stated, "Our decision to establish an office in Rhode Island is in response to our clients' requests for competent counsel in the state. Our practice areas will mirror that of our other offices across the country, further enhancing our ability to be a full-service firm throughout New England."

Luana is nationally recognized for her trial results, having taken over 20 matters to verdict in two decades. Her trial experience spans the gamut practice-wise, including professional liability matters, catastrophic injury, products liability, transportation, construction and premises matters. She is widely sought out for her results, receiving national acclaim. “As a defense trial lawyer, I have been fortunate to not be limited to only one practice area,” explained Luana. “As a result, my experience is deep in multiple practice areas as are my defense verdicts which, in the end, makes me a better lawyer. I am excited to join WSHB and thrilled about the firm’s expansion into Rhode Island.”

Luana has been appointed the managing partner of the Providence office and also joins as partner in WSHB’s growing Boston office. She brings a well-deserved reputation for high levels of legal service and obtaining results for her clients in complex matters. With an impressive background and extensive experience in commercial litigation, Luana is licensed to practice in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island state and federal courts. In addition, Luana is well regarded for her results handling catastrophic injury, construction site accidents, trucking, dram shop and discrimination claims. Her depth of experience includes handling all facets of general liability matters, as well as consumer protection violations.

“Luana is an extremely versatile litigator, which makes her an obvious candidate to lead this office,” commented founding partner Stephen Henning. “She has secured tremendous results over the years in high profile matters involving commercial litigation, products liability and professional liability matters.”

WSHB's new office in Providence, Rhode Island, is poised to make a lasting impact on the legal landscape, offering unparalleled legal expertise, dedication, and service to clients throughout New England. Expressing enthusiasm for the expansion, Michelle Arbitrio, managing partner of the firm’s White Plains office and proud alumni of Providence College, stated, "We have long recognized the potential for growth in Providence and are eager to establish meaningful relationships with clients in the area. Providence is a dynamic and thriving community, and we understand the demand for high-caliber legal representation that WSHB is renowned for. With Luana joining us, we are confident that our Providence office will quickly become a valuable asset to the legal landscape in Rhode Island." WSHB is excited to embark on this new chapter and continue our tradition of excellence in the legal industry.
