New England's Largest Plaintiffs' Law Firm

Thornton Law Firm LLP was founded in 1978 by Michael Thornton and two other attorneys doing groundbreaking work for victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Now a leading injury law firm in Massachusetts and the largest plaintiff law firm in New England, the firm has 21 attorneys representing thousands of clients in a wide variety of plaintiff-side work.

Experience in complex litigation over the last three decades has led to the firm's involvement in cases of local and national importance and recognition as one of the exceptional Massachusetts personal injury law firms. Our work on behalf of the injured has included representing:

-The Commonwealth of Massachusetts in its lawsuit against the tobacco industry, which settled for $8 billion in 1998

-More than 20,000 victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases and serving as plaintiffs' asbestos liaison counsel in Massachusetts

-Hundreds of children and families affected by lead poisoning and representing the State of Rhode Island in its fight against the lead paint industry

-Children suffering from severe birth defects related to the use of chemicals in the workplace

-Victims of catastrophic injuries, including severe physical and brain injuries, bringing claims for personal injury, products liability, workers compensation, and under FELA

-Those harmed by pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices, including hip implants, transvaginal mesh, Invokana, Benicar, defective IVC filters, and many others

-Consumers, workers, and taxpayers through the firm's class action, wage and hour, and fraud and False Claims Act practices

Massachusetts personal injury lawyers at Thornton Law Firm LLP serve individual clients and also consult with institutional clients, national labor organizations, state governments, municipalities and other law firms.

The firm's 19 attorneys are supported by a highly qualified and dedicated staff of about 70 legal assistants, administrators, and support personnel. In addition, we employ a full-time public health specialist with a background in epidemiology to research and assess the correlation between disease and exposure to toxic substances occurring in our cases.

A further key to the firm's success is the long-term relationships attorneys form with many highly respected medical and scientific experts, including occupational health physicians, toxicologists, epidemiologists, and industrial hygienists who work with us in the investigation and prosecution of our cases.

To serve clients in other geographical areas, Thornton Law Firm LLP has strategic alliances with other prominent public health law firms who have also received national recognition for their work in asbestos-related litigation and other complex cases.
