About This Firm

Lopez McHugh LLP was founded in 2007 by Ramon Rossi Lopez, founder and former managing partner of the national law firm Lopez, Hodes, Restaino, Milman & Skikos, and James J. McHugh, Jr., former partner of The Beasley Firm in Philadelphia. The partners of Lopez McHugh collectively have been practicing law successfully for close to 75 years, with case verdicts and settlements totaling in excess of one billion dollars.

Ramon Lopez and Jim McHugh both bring to the firm significant backgrounds in extensive litigation and trial practice, in the many areas of consumer rights, including the following mass tort litigations: Fen-Phen, Breast Implants, Baycol, Rezulin, Sulzer Hips/Knees, PPA, Ephedra, Propulsid, Zyvox, and Zyprexa. Currently the firm is actively involved in litigating the following mass tort cases: Gadolinium/NSF; Ortho Evra Birth Control Patch; Ketek; Guidant and Medtronic defibrillators and pacemakers; drug-eluting coronary stents; Vioxx; Trasylol (aprotinin); Kugel mesh hernia patch; and SSRI anti-depressants causing significant heart and lung birth defects (Paxil, Zoloft, etc.). Ramon Lopez has served or presently serves in leadership positions on plaintiffs' steering or executive committees in various federal multi-district mass tort litigations and state-coordinated mass tort actions around the country. Ramon Lopez was one of four lead plaintiff lawyer negotiators in the Zyprexa litigation, whose efforts resulted in an unprecedented $700 million settlement on behalf of clients from approximately 15 separate law firms, 25% of whose clients were retained by Mr. Lopez's former firm.

The attorneys of Lopez McHugh have set a precedent and track record for defending those who cannot defend themselves and are dedicated and committed to serving their existing and future clients with unprecedented excellence.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
