Mr. McLaughlin was admitted to practice law in Pennsylvania in 1982, in New Jersey in 1983, in the District of Columbia in 1985, and in New York in 1988. For the first ten years of his practice, Mr. McLaughlin worked as an attorney for one of Philadelphia’s larger medical malpractice defense firms representing physicians, dentists, hospitals, and other healthcare providers in professional liability claims. Since 1992, Mr. McLaughlin has focused his practice on the representation of individuals who have been seriously injured by accidents, sexual molestation, or substandard medical care.
Mr. McLaughlin worked at The Beasley Firm in Philadelphia for 17 years, having trained under, and become partners with, the legendary trial lawyer, Jim Beasley, Sr. Following Beasley’s death, Mr. McLaughlin and Paul A. Lauricella formed McLaughlin & Lauricella.
In February, 2003, Mr. McLaughlin was trial counsel in the first World Trade Center lawsuit claiming that the Republic of Iraq and Saddam Hussein conspired with Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda in the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on The World Trade Center. That lawsuit resulted in a $104 million judgment.
Mr. McLaughlin is a member of the Mensa Society, but also enjoys non-intellectual pursuits, such as riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle and other adventurous activities such as running the New York Marathon, skydiving, scuba diving, bungee cord jumping, “Running the Bulls” in Pamplona, Spain, and climbing to Mount Everest’s Base Camp.
