Attorney Awards


With more than 30 years of experience, Martina Walsh McLaughlin has a distinguished career representing clients in a wide variety of complex civil litigation cases, including medical and legal malpractice, products liability, highway design, dram shop cases and general negligence. She has compassionately represented many families who suffered devastating losses, including a new father whose wife died in child birth, parents of a healthy newborn who suffered brain damage only hours after birth, the mother of a construction worker killed when he was struck by a milling machine unequipped with blind spot mirrors, the family of a nurse who died when the defectively designed medivac helicopter she was on crashed after take-off, and many others.

Ms. McLaughlin has also represented clients with claims under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Working on behalf of workers seeking pension benefits under an early retirement package, she organized several class-action lawsuits that garnered national attention from the media and legal community. Also noteworthy is her representation of vulnerable children and mentally challenged adults who have been physically abused.

She excels in resolving and assisting other colleagues in analyzing complex legal issues accompanying major litigation. Currently, she has joined her colleague, Chuck Hehmeyer, in representing parents and children with claims involving inborn errors of metabolism.

Ms. McLaughlin has received the highest possible rating in legal ability and ethics from Martindale Hubble. She served for five years as a member of the Board of Directors of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association.

Ms. McLaughlin’s pro bono activities include volunteering for the Senior Law Center. When her children, now college students (Rochester Institute of Technology and Boston University), were in high school, Ms. McLaughlin was actively involved in school activities, including Treasurer of the Upper Merion High School Crew Boosters and a participant with her husband in The Shipley School’s Fine Arts Committee activities.
