Firm Practice Areas

Civil Litigation

 

Firm attorneys have extensive experience litigating claims in a number of civil practice areas, from federal civil rights violations to complex personal injury/wrongful death claims to toxic tort litigation.  In all litigation, preparation is paramount, and our skilled practitioners are adept at ensuring every claim is ready for trial through aggressive and thorough pre-trial discovery.  At multiple stages of our preparation, cases are assessed and re-assessed by committees of firm attorneys to gauge the prospects for and advisability of settlement.  Our clients are indispensable partners in this process, with due consideration afforded their expectations, goals and financial resources.  Where appropriate, firm attorneys are committed to the use of alternative dispute resolution (mediation and arbitration) to settle disputes. 



Firm attorneys have achieved favorable results in a variety of jurisdictions, as well as in administrative forums such as the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (formerly National Association of Securities Dealers).  Firm attorneys have handled cases involving:


  • Civil Rights Violations
  • Personal Injury
  • Wrongful Death
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Premises Liability
  • Products Liability
  • Toxic Torts
  • Insurance Coverage Claims
  • Subrogation Claims
