Rath, Young and Pignatelli’s trial attorneys have brought thousands of disputes to successful conclusions. We have wide experience in evaluating, negotiating and trying cases in state and Federal courts in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine. We represent businesses, individuals, non-profits and municipalities in a diverse range of matters, including professional liability, medical malpractice, business, insurance, environmental, employment, probate, family, personal injury and tax matters.
Our attorneys thoroughly investigate cases and handle all strategy decisions from pre-suit demands, through the pleading, discovery and pre-trial stages, and through trial and appeal. We have an excellent record before New Hampshire juries and the New Hampshire Supreme Court, and have represented clients throughout the country at all levels of trial and appellate practice.
Well-known and respected by judges and opposing counsel, our attorneys have been recognized by the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, and by peer ranking organizations such as Martindale Hubbell, Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers. Many of our attorneys have worked for the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office, United States Attorney’s Office or as law clerks to Federal or state court judges.
Recognizing that litigation can be an expensive process and takes its toll on clients, we are always seeking to resolve disputes in an efficient fashion. When appropriate, we recommend filing dispositive motions. At the opportune time and if appropriate, we might recommend mediation and arbitration, or entering into settlement negotiations. Fees for litigation services can be arranged on hourly or contingent bases, or in more flexible, staged or modified engagements.
Our attorneys are assisted by experienced associates and paralegals, including a nurse-paralegal who is a valuable resource on matters involving medical issues.
