Robert M. Higgins

Having achieved the Commonwealth’s largest personal injury award — a $40 million verdict for a baby brain damaged at birth — Robert Higgins has become one of the state’s top trial attorneys with a specialty in medical malpractice. Attorney Higgins’ unrivaled verdict was followed by his obtaining two additional record-setting awards — a $14.5 million award for the failure of doctors to diagnose and treat an infection leading to the death of 40-year-old woman and a $13.5 million verdict for the failure of doctors to diagnose and treat abdominal compartment syndrome leading to the death of a 30-year-old woman. Attorney Higgins is also known for securing the largest jury award in Plymouth County — a $19.8 million verdict for a doctor’s failure to diagnose cervical cancer as well as his $7.2 million award for a doctor’s failure to diagnose breast cancer. In addition to his unprecedented jury awards, Attorney Higgins has also negotiated over $75 million in medical malpractice settlements on behalf of his clients in just the last seven years.

Attorney Higgins has received the distinction of being listed by Super Lawyers by Boston Magazine each year since 2006 — having previously been recognized by the publication as a Super Lawyer Rising Star in 2005. He is further recognized by being selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® from 2008-2014, the universally regarded definitive guide to legal excellence, and his inclusion was featured in the Boston Globe Magazine.

Attorney Higgins has consistently maintained an AV rating — the highest rating for legal ability and ethical standards — from the well-respected national directory of lawyers, Martindale Hubbell.

Attorney Higgins is also a frequent guest lecturer for the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education organization, The Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys and Suffolk University Law School. Additionally, Attorney Higgins provides legal analysis and commentary for local news stations on topics related to medical malpractice and jury trials.

A 1991 graduate of the University of Maine, Attorney Higgins received his Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School in 1994. He began as an associate at Lubin & Meyer in 1994 and became a partner in 2001. He is licensed to practice in both the federal and state courts of Massachusetts, and his professional memberships include the Boston Bar Association, Massachusetts Bar Association and the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys. Attorney Higgins is also a member of the Board of Trustees of Boston College High School.
