Similarly, Attorney Nicole M. Labonte, who became a firm Partner in January 2020, offers our clients her unparalleled litigation experience.  Having represented clients for many years in state and federal courts throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut, Attorney Labonte has assisted clients with a wide array of civil lawsuits, including matters relating to real estate, property damage, boundary disputes, and complex business, estate and trust litigation.  As a former Rhode Island Supreme Court Clerk for the now-Chief Justice Paul Suttell, Attorney Labonte has unique insight into the inner workings of the Court systems in which she practices. She aggressively and efficiently represents her clients in a wide array of civil lawsuits, and her knowledge of Court procedure and how to use it best to serve our clients are second to none.

In addition to business and real estate, our legal team effectively represents clients in insurance claim disputes. Having worked as an insurance adjuster and owned several insurance-related businesses, Attorney Palumbo understands the tactics that insurance companies use to delay and underpay claims including those for fire loss, water damage and property loss. Our legal team is able to head off these tactics and quickly resolve your claims because we know the insurance company’s playbook. Receiving the compensation you’re entitled to shouldn’t be a long and frustrating process. At PALUMBO LAW, we are dedicated to providing you with a fast and efficient resolution to an insurance claim.

Similarly, our attorneys provide zealous representation in Probate of Wills and Estate Administration, Probate Disputes, Will Contests, Trust Administration, Trust Litigation and Elder Abuse Litigation.
