Joseph Lamy

About me

I have an uncommon advantage over most personal injury attorneys practicing in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.  Prior to law school, I spent several years as a casualty adjuster for a major insurance provider.  In that position, it was my job to value cases and find flaws in personal injury cases.  This knowledge gives me a unique edge against my competition.


After spending those years working for the defense side of insurance claims I studied at one of the country's premier law schools and after graduation started my legal career at one of New Englands most prestigious plaintiff trial firms.  All I handle are personal injury cases and I feel uniquely suited to do so.
