Welcome to Lopez McHugh LLP
When you purchase goods or services, especially medical devices and prescription drugs, you would like to think the provider has your best interests at heart. Unfortunately, that is often times not the case.
The world and life are not always fair; bad things happen to good and innocent people. Whether an individual, company, or service provider hurts you through happenstance, negligence, or with intent, you should not have to live with the repercussions of someone else’s poor decisions. The dedicated attorneys and staff at Lopez McHugh LLP have a track record of focusing on one thing – righting the wrongs done to our clients.
For over 30 years, the attorneys at the nationally-recognized plaintiffs’ law firm of Lopez McHugh have been committed to obtaining justice for their clients by standing up to companies that take advantage of consumers; the nursing homes and medical professionals who harm patients through carelessness; the pharmaceutical giants that rush drugs to market with too little precaution against potentially deadly side effects; the insurance companies that wrongfully deny benefits; the auto manufacturers that put unsafe vehicles on our highways; and the manufacturers of defective medical devices that are aware of defects, but fail to fix them.

Experience matters. In addition to having a competent and ethical legal team to handle your case, you want a legal team in your corner with the litigation and trial experience needed to obtain the justice you deserve. In today’s world, you can count on the other side — be it a giant pharmaceutical company, a trucking company, a hospital, or an individual — to have top notch defense firms with experienced and highly-skilled trial lawyers representing their interests. To meet this challenge, you need lawyers on your side with a relentless drive for justice that is not deterred by the size, clout, or appeal of a defendant or its legal team. Standing up to wrongdoers and being champions for justice is exactly what the attorneys and staff at Lopez McHugh have been doing for decades.
So, how does one measure experience? Perhaps in years, such as the decades that Lopez McHugh attorneys have devoted to securing justice for their clients; perhaps in monetary terms — we have recovered over a billion dollars on behalf of our clients; perhaps by peer recognition, or referrals from other attorneys. By any measure, Lopez McHugh has a record of success, and we can put that experience to work for you.
When you are an individual taking on a corporate conglomerate or big business, you are in for an uphill fight because they have more resources and all of the information. The defense will have resilient and convincing lawyers working feverishly to poke holes in your case, no matter how crystal clear the fault may be in your eyes. This is why you must have strength and legal intelligence by your side at all stages of your case.
You should not be in this fight alone. Our attorneys have the skill, work ethic, and drive to take on any defendant, no matter how big and powerful they think they are. Lopez McHugh often represents hundreds, sometimes thousands, of similarly injured people. While a corporation can decide to ignore one injured person, it becomes harder when there are hundreds more making the same claim.
Whether representing multiple victims or just one, our focus is both compensation and changing business practices that harm patients and consumers in the first place. For decades, the attorneys at Lopez McHugh have been proud of their fearless role as David versus Goliath for their clients.
Some cases resolve quickly. Others take years. At Lopez McHugh, we have a track record of committing to our cases for as long as it takes, and with the resources necessary — be it time, money, or personnel — to see them to completion. It is our firm’s culture to have a good-spirited staff that is committed to our cause. Passion, devotion, diligence, and loyalty are just a few of the adjectives that describe the attorneys, paralegals, and other staff members of Lopez McHugh.
Where appropriate, we have committed hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire dozens of experts necessary to prepare complicated cases for trial. We have committed the time and expertise to see cases through multiple rounds of appeals, and prevent them from being dismissed. We have partnered with other law firms to conduct dozens of depositions over short time periods, in order to get favorable trial dates and strengthen our negotiating position.
When we take a case, we devote ourselves to it. If we take your case, we commit to zealously representing your interests just as we have for thousands of other clients.
