Located in Salem on Boston’s North Shore, this personal injury and commercial litigation firm provides first-class representation to consumers and businesses involved in a wide range of civil litigation. The firm also has an impressive appellate record, having taken cases on appeal in state and federal courts.

Some of the firm’s cases stem from personal injuries – whether from car accidents, workplace accidents, or involving particular products – and the firm has successfully tried to verdict (or settled on favorable terms) claims resulting in catastrophic injuries, serious burns, or death. We also have a history of having defended many of the same kinds of cases on behalf of various entities.
