Lubin & Meyer: Decades of Excellence

Lubin & Meyer has earned its reputation as the hardest-working, most successful medical malpractice and catastrophic personal injury law firm in New England. And the proof is in the results.

By Justin Smulison

WHEN LUBIN & MEYER cofounder Andrew C. Meyer Jr. was featured last year in a Boston magazine exposé, “The Secret Truth About Boston Doctors,” he wasn’t shy about speaking out against a medical system in Massachusetts that often, the magazine charged, protects dangerous physicians at the expense of unwitting patients.

In a follow-up to the article, Meyer appeared as a guest on the New England Cable News network, where he highlighted the failures of the Massachusetts Board of Medicine to adequately discipline doctors who have a record of harming multiple patients. Meyer pointed specifically to a current member of the board, who was appointed while a malpractice suit against him was pending. The board, Meyer told the magazine, needs “to represent the safety of patients rather than to protect doctors.”

Meyer’s contributions toward making the practice of medicine safer have inspired sweeping changes in the way health care is delivered. As New England’s most recognizable medical malpractice attorney, he has built a firm around his mission of representing the voiceless—people seriously injured by the shortcomings and mistakes of a complex, often secretive medical system. “Our work shines a light on dangerous practices, a medical system unable to regulate itself and mistakes that by definition are avoidable,” he says. “For a medical professional to choose not to run a test, spend the necessary time, or respond to symptoms is inexcusable. Our firm’s work calls attention to systemic problems, holds individuals accountable, and forces substandard practices to be changed.

“Recovering compensation for our clients’ ongoing care, hospital bills and associated costs is important,” he adds, “but time and time again our clients come to us seeking accountability— the need to hold a negligent doctor accountable or expose a flawed medical system so that these kinds of mistakes don’t happen to another family.”

Growing to Meet the Challenge

Medical errors rank as the third leading cause of death in the United States. As such, Lubin & Meyer has grown accordingly, in both the number and amount of record-setting verdicts and settlements it obtains on behalf of its clients. Trial attorneys under Meyer’s leadership have become seasoned courtroom stars in their own right: Robert M. Higgins, Krysia J. Syska, William J. Thompson, Adam R. Satin, and Nicholas D. Cappiello join Meyer in receiving the highest ratings for ethical standards and professional excellence from Super Lawyers, Martindale-Hubbell, and many other distinguished attorney-rating organizations and directories.

Lubin & Meyer further boosted its bench strength last year, welcoming attorney Patrick M. Haggan, a veteran prosecutor at the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office who oversaw 160 lawyers and more than 30,000 criminal cases each year, including complex trials such as the 2017 double-murder case against former New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez. Haggan, Meyer says, is “one of the most respected trial attorneys in the area,” whose presence at the firm is already producing results: Haggan obtained a $2.5 million verdict just a few months after joining the firm.
