Gerard A. Palma, Esq.

For more than 25 years, I have focused my practice on disability law, workers’ compensation, and personal injury. I am recognized by my peers as one the area’s leading advocates for adults and children who are pursuing Social Security disability and SSI benefits.

When I opened my practice in 1987, my first goal was to listen to my clients. I listened carefully to their needs and concerns about their prior dealings with the legal system. As a result, I have developed my firm into a successful law practice that maintains the highest standards of ethics and service to our clients. I employ a team of paralegals and legal assistants who share my vision.

I am a member of the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA), the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR), and the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys (MATA).

I received my law degree from Western New England School of Law in Springfield, Massachusetts. I attended Tewksbury Memorial High School and the University of Lowell (now U-Mass) where I received my B.A. in Spanish, which I speak fluently.

Lowell, MA Worker’s Compensation Lawyer


This is a time when you have many questions and are rightly concerned about the foreseeable future. It is my goal that each and every person that steps foot through our doors will be treated with respect and will leave fully satisfied with the services that we provide and have a complete understanding of the worker’s compensation system in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, that is not the goal of the insurance carrier. It is their goal to pay you as little money as possible.

This is how Lowell, MA Worker’s Compensation Lawyer Gerard A. Palma can help:

  • I will notify the insurance company that I represent you
  • I will demand a complete copy of your file
  • I will seek to have the insurance company pay or continue to pay your lost wages
  • I will seek to have the insurance company pay your medical bills
  • When appropriate, I will settle your case for you.

You do not have to pay me a fee unless we settle your case and otherwise the insurance company will pay my fee if we are successful. Please call to speak with Lowell, MA worker’s compensation lawyer Gerard A. Palma to learn more about your rights.

Personal Injury in Lowell, MA

Personal injuries and accidents can happen on the road, at work and at home, and often have devastating consequences. When you have been injured through no fault of your own, you deserve fast and fair compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, disability, scarring, and emotional distress.

Do Not Delay – Take the First Step

Massachusetts law limits the amount of time in which you can file your claim for relief. You have probably already been contacted by the insurance company. It is important to consult an attorney immediately following your injury, when witnesses’ recollections are fresh and evidence remains available. If necessary, we will hire our own private investigator to take photos and interview witnesses. Palma Law Offices, P.C. schedules appointments as soon as possible to make sure that your claim proceeds as quickly as possible. PALMA LAW OFFICES, P.C. has a proven track record. I have built my law practice based upon a loyal base of satisfied clients who refer family and friends and are proud to do so. There is no fee unless we are successful.
