Robert J. Hartigan is a passionate young lawyer who aggressively advocates for his clients and gives each case his utmost attention. He makes client communication a top priority in each case, continually keeping clients informed throughout the legal process.
Mr. Hartigan attended Suffolk University Law School in Boston where he focused on civil litigation. Prior to and during law school, Mr. Hartigan clerked at a personal injury litigation firm located just outside of Boston for five years before joining that firm as a litigation attorney. During his time there, he handled various types of personal injury cases involving motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, traumatic brain injuries, PIP benefits, and claims against insurance companies for violations of M.G.L. 93A/176D.
In the fall of 2015, Mr. Hartigan completed a semester-long internship at the Essex County District Attorney’s Office. The internship was part of a Suffolk Law School legal clinic, which focused on OUI prosecution. During his internship, he second-chaired multiple trials on behalf of the Commonwealth.
In 2018 Mr. Hartigan joined Mazow | McCullough as an associate attorney where his practice is dedicated to personal injury litigation and trials.
In 2019, he joined the Massachusetts Bar Association’s YLD (young lawyers division) Board of Directors as the Regional Director for Essex County. Mr. Hartigan also serves on the MBA YLD’s Law School and Legislative Committees. That same year he was selected by National Trial Lawyers as a Top 40 Under 40 Attorney in Massachusetts, an honor given to only a select group of lawyers for their superior skills and qualifications in the field. Membership is by invitation only and is limited to the top 40 attorneys in each state or region who have demonstrated excellence and have achieved outstanding results in their careers in either civil plaintiff or criminal defense law.
Mr. Hartigan became a lawyer because he wanted to help the people in his community whose lives have been adversely affected by the wrongful actions of others. He is a member of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys and Essex County Bar Association.
Mr. Hartigan grew up in Saugus, Massachusetts, and attended the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, studying philosophy and communications. He played guitar in local bands and completed a music business internship in Nashville, TN, before attending law school.
