       The law firm of MacDonald Rothweiler Eisenberg LLP represents individuals and their families who are the victims of catastrophic injuries and whose legal claims
       for such injuries are pursued in federal or state court. We are not a class-action firm representing many people with minor injuries seeking a group settlement. Rather
       our focus is the opposite; we carefully prepare for and conduct actual trials in complex, individual civil cases in courtrooms in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and
       across the country. Recent judicial forums in which our firm has litigated wrongful death and other serious cases include federal and state courts in Atlanta, Georgia;
       Salt Lake City, Utah; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Denver, Colorado; New York City and Chicago, Illinois. The scope of our mass tort practice is national and builds
       upon the firm and its lawyers’ many years of achieving record-breaking courtroom verdicts and pre-trial settlements against large insurance, pharmaceutical,
       medical device, automotive and other Fortune 500 companies.

       The twelve lawyers of MacDonald Rothweiler Eisenberg LLP are distinguished plaintiffs trial lawyers dedicated to providing the highest quality legal representation to
       those who have suffered serious injury or death as a result of another party’s negligence or wrongdoing. Each of our five partners has extensive experience handling
       complex personal injury cases, including: the first-in-the-nation ‘Fen-Phen’ Wrongful Death case; to date more than 60 Primary Pulmonary Hypertension ( PPH ) Diet
       Pill cases; and numerous pending or now concluded wrongful death cases arising from defective Duragesic/Fentanyl prescription pain patches. We have successfully
       resolved numerous cases with multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients and have earned a reputation for excellence among our professional peers,
       including inclusion of two of our named partners in Best Lawyers in America® and all three in Super Lawyers published in Philadelphia and Boston Magazines.
