With its major focus on personal injury and workers' compensation cases, this large Springfield firm puts an emphasis on lawyers' relationships with clients. "I think we bond with our clients," says Earl Seeley III (whose grandfather founded the firm in 1957). "We help people in times of personal crisis." That means taking the time to answer questions and make sure clients are comfortable and knowledgeable, adds partner Patrick McHugh. "They trusted you with this big part of their lives," he says, adding that the attorneys' diverse backgrounds and team approach benefit their clients.
