High impact law firm continues to grow presence in heavy-industry area of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia
(Pittsburgh, PA & New York City) Jan 26, 2016, Chaffin Luhana LLP, a plaintiff-only national law firm with offices in New York City, Pittsburgh and West Virginia that has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for victims and their families and is proud to announce the promotion of attorney Patrick Booth to Partner. Booth, a Pittsburgh native and former large defense firm attorney, has spent over 10 years practicing law in the tri-state area of Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. As a former large defense lawyer, Booth regularly represented large trucking companies, railroads and Fortune 500 companies and is known as a top legal strategist in auto insurance law.
“Patrick has been with us for three years and it is a pleasure to welcome him to the partnership. He is one of the hardest working attorneys I know and his care and compassion for our clients is nothing short of remarkable,” said Managing Partner Eric Chaffin. “He is only the third firm partner, with the first two being the founding partners. We are excited about our growing presence in the Pittsburgh and Ohio Valley region, and this is one of a number of exciting announcements we expect to make this year about our presence in the region,” said Managing Partner Eric Chaffin.
Mr. Booth received his undergraduate degrees in finance and government from the University of Maryland, where he was a Presidential Academic Scholar. He received his law degree cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and he is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio, as well as various federal courts. He regularly appears in state and federal courts in the region, representing the firm’s trucking, auto, premises liability and work related injury clients. “We have a unique practice,” says Chaffin. “Unlike many boutique personal injury trial firms, we have a thriving regional personal injury practice, and a complex national product liability practice involving consumer product, pharmaceutical and medical device injuries. Our attorneys may appear in court on a significant auto or trucking case one day, and a complex product liability case the next. What we do is complex, but we only do it for individual plaintiffs, and we love what we do. Patrick shares our passion for the trial work and the clients, which makes him a great fit for our partnership,” says Chaffin.
“Chaffin Luhana’s representation of innocent victims daily – Doing Good by Doing RightTM – is the exact reason I started practicing law,” said Booth. “I wanted to help people and I get to do just that every day. It is an honor to become a partner, and I look forward to continuing to help accident and product liability victims in the Tri-State area.”
