After having worked at the Law Firm of Woolsey, Fisher since coming out of Law School, my practice had grown apart from the core practice at Woolsey Fisher which was primarily insurance defense related. I had developed over the years an expertise in all sorts of product liability and large cases involving litigation mostly from the plaintiffs' side. I decided to form my own firm in 1990. Originally the name of the firm was the Law Offices of Robert M.N. Palmer, PC but we changed it in 2005 when Craig Oliver became my partner.
The focus of the firm has remained primarily based in plaintiffs' work with an emphasis on large products and commercial cases. We have however from time to time represented defendants in large cases as well.
