Hughes is a Partner in the Firm’s Boston, MA office.  He has been litigating matters associated with labor and employment, civil rights, correctional healthcare, environmental liability, architects/engineers liability, construction defects, railroad liability and employee/FELA and third-party/passenger claims, medical malpractice, general liability, civil RICO, commercial disputes, contracts, and insurance matters since 1997.

Mr. Hughes has tried cases in federal and state court, and before administrative law bodies, including the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, in many  areas of the law.  In addition, he has been successful in obtaining the dismissal of numerous cases through various dispositive motions, and in achieving beneficial settlements.  Although the majority of his work has involved defending clients, he has prosecuted commercial claims and achieved substantial settlements on behalf of the firm’s clientele.  Currently, Mr. Hughes is involved in defending our clients in various forums on matters involving labor and employment, environmental contamination, railroad, professional liability,  and personal injury claims.

Mr. Hughes graduated with a B.S. from Northwestern University and received a M.S. in Broadcasting and Film from Boston University.  After working as a film and television producer for more than a decade he returned to academia and received his J.D.
