Mr. Lawlor has a blue collar, working class background that gives him a special insight to many of his clients, particularly those who have been hurt at work.  He also says it has impacted his overall approach to the law.  “I don’t mince words.  I have found in my experience that clients appreciate an honest and straight-forward approach to the pros and cons of their case.  They feel informed and in turn trust us to get them the best outcome possible.”

As Assistant Managing Attorney, Mr. Lawlor supervises the firm’s Pre-Litigation Department.  “The first few weeks after someone has been injured by another’s negligence are critical.  People are hurt, they’re out of work, their car may be damaged.  They need guidance and attention during this process.  I pride our Pre-Litigation Department on their ability to ease our clients’ worries and let them know we will assist them through the entire process.”
