Attorney Profile

Richard J. Fitzpatrick is the founder of Fitzpatrick & Associates, where he focuses his practice primarily on workers' compensation matters. His experience extends as well to Social Security Disability Insurance claims, and he has also handled personal injury litigation. Admitted to practice in Massachusetts since 2001, Mr. Fitzpatrick is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit and the U.S. Tax Court.

In his workers' compensation practice, Mr. Fitzpatrick represents people throughout Massachusetts who have been injured on the job or who have contracted an occupational disease and who are seeking their rightful benefits under their employer's insurance coverage. He assists them with the preparation of their required claim, helping to ensure that it contains all necessary documentation and that it is filed on a timely basis. In the event the claim is denied, Mr. Fitzpatrick appears on the client's behalf before administrative judges and at appellate hearings.

Mr. Fitzpatrick also represents people who are no longer able to work due to a physical or cognitive impairment and who want to claim Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. The vast majority of these claims are denied at the initial level, and thus, he works hard to take these matters through the appeals process. Mr. Fitzpatrick's personal injury practice primarily involves motor vehicle crashes, but it can also come into play in workers' compensation cases when the injury was the fault of a non-employer third party.

After receiving a Bachelor of Science in biology from Stonehill College, Mr. Fitzpatrick worked as an analytical chemist before attending Roger Williams School of Law and being awarded his Juris Doctor. His memberships include the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys.
