Our litigators have extensive experience defending a wide variety of personal injury, professional malpractice, products liability, environmental, commercial dispute, construction defect, fire loss, land use, and employment cases. We practice in all state and federal trial courts in the State of New Hampshire, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the State of Maine, as well as the state courts of Vermont. In addition, our firm has an active insurance coverage practice, and we have successfully appeared in appellate matters before the New Hampshire Supreme Court and First Circuit Court of Appeals.
We believe that our extensive experience in defending personal injury cases gives GSSP attorneys a unique breadth and depth of experience in assisting personal injury plaintiffs as well. We not only understand the law and the medicine involved in your personal injury matter, we know how the defense will likely evaluate your claim.
