Super Lawyers Top 10

Accident and Injury Attorneys Who Make a Difference

With nearly 75 years of combined experience, Slade H. McLaughlin and Paul A. Lauricella are at the helm of McLaughlin & Lauricella, a nationally recognized law firm specializing in medical malpractice, catastrophic personal injury claims and sexual abuse cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The firm’s attorneys have been recognized repeatedly as leaders in the personal injury field. In 2019, McLaughlin and Lauricella have been selected again to Super Lawyers, and Bethany R. Nikitenko to the Rising Stars list.

McLaughlin, a founding shareholder of the firm, has been listed in each edition of The Best Lawyers in America since 2003 and is a repeat selection to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Top 10 list.

He is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades, locally and nationally, for his expertise in handling medical malpractice and personal injury cases. Lauricella, co-founder of the firm, is recognized for his trial and appellate advocacy, and has likewise been selected continuously as a Super Lawyers honoree over the past 14 years. McLaughlin and Lauricella are board-certified as civil trial attorneys by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and are also members of the American Board of Trial Advocates. Nikitenko, the firm’s newest partner, was named to Lawyers on the Fast Track in 2017 by The Legal Intelligencer.

Tenacious and knowledgeable, McLaughlin and Lauricella are no strangers to the courtroom.

They have secured record-setting results for catastrophically injured clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Most recently, they obtained an unprecedented $55 million obstetric malpractice verdict in Lehigh County, the largest single malpractice verdict in Pennsylvania outside of Philadelphia County, a $17 million malpractice verdict on behalf of a brain-injured child in Monmouth County, New Jersey, the second largest malpractice verdict in the state in 2017, and a $20 million verdict in Philadelphia County on behalf of a worker run over by a bulldozer.
