He has over 30 years of active, in-depth litigation experience. He has over 20 years of active, in-depth litigation experience.  During that time he defended business policyholders against personal injury and workers' compensation claims. For six of those years he specialized in the defense of construction site injuries. Although his practice is now limited to representing plaintiffs, Mark's experience with the insurer was invaluable. It thoroughly grounded him on how to effectively evaluate and resolve claims with insurers. Mark has tried a wide array of cases to a jury verdict. For instance, they have included fall down accidents, construction site accidents, auto accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful termination/defamation claims, negligent security, products liability, murder, armed robbery, drunk driving, etc. The number of cases Mark has tried to a jury verdict roughly places him in the top 3% of practicing Massachusetts lawyers in terms of the extent of his experience. Mark also has had very substantial workers' compensation litigation experience. This has run the full gamut of workers’ compensation claims, including permanent and total disability, death, toxic exposure and heart attack claims. Attorney Horrigan continues to review and evaluate potential medical malpractice cases in collaboration with a loosely associated attorney, outside of the office with over 30 years of malpractice experience. Finally, he handles immigration matters, often on a collaborative basis with his wife and associate, Attorney Nancy B. Norman-Horrigan, an immigration specialist.
