For 19 consecutive years, Andrew C. Meyer, Jr., has been selected for inclusion in the Best Lawyers in America — the guide to legal excellence. In the 2014 edition, he is joined by four partners who are honored by their inclusion on the Best Lawyers' list. This significant distinction is matched by Boston Magazine naming all seven of the firm's trial attorneys as Massachusetts Super Lawyers with special recognition of Andrew C. Meyer, Jr. on the Top 10 and Top 100 Lists and Robert H. Higgins on the Top 100 List.
Maintaining the firm's dominance in its field, Lubin & Meyer secured 4 of the Top 10 verdicts of 2013 — a $24.4 million* jury verdict for negligent care of a newborn, a $2.44 million verdict for failure to screen cancer, a $1.58 million verdict for an emergency intubation resulting in death, and a $1.42 million verdict for failure to recognize a detached retina resulting in loss of sight. These results complement the firm's unparalleled list of verdicts which include a $40 million verdict for a baby's brain injury (the largest in Massachusetts history), a $23.8 million verdict against two Massachusetts General Hospital obstetricians, and a $30 million verdict against two Brigham & Women's Hospital ob/gyn residents...
