A distinction about our office is that we are a firm of trial attorneys. We do not simply litigate cases – we try them. If a case does not reach resolution prior to trial by way of dispositive motion or settlement, then we are not only prepared to, but extraordinarily experienced and skilled at trying the case through conclusion. We believe the ability to engage counsel who have the reputation and respect among their peers and within our judicial system as top-flight trial attorneys is an important and essential element of case management.
Our record of success as one of the premier defense practices in Massachusetts has established long-term, successful relationships with our clients. Our firm has always recognized that it is a privilege, not an entitlement, to work in partnership with our clients. It is this partnership that is the hallmark of our firm’s philosophy.
We recognize that the firm’s relationship with its clients extends beyond any given claim or lawsuit. As part of our working relationship, we believe it is our obligation to provide, at no charge, training programs, lectures, seminars and continuing education. In addition, our attorneys lecture extensively throughout our specialized industries, are broadly published within the legal, healthcare and insurance communities and are actively involved in many professional, trade and community organizations.
