Drew LaFramboise is an experienced litigator and problem-solver who has spent his entire career handling complex legal matters on behalf of individuals and businesses.

As Senior Counsel in Joseph, Greenwald & Laake’s civil litigation department, Drew is involved in a variety of practice areas, including commercial, civil rights, consumer fraud, appellate, sexual assault/abuse, and serious personal injury litigation. Drew handles cases on behalf of individuals, businesses, and classes of plaintiffs.

Prior to joining JGL, Drew practiced for a number of years at a DC-based plaintiffs’ litigation firm, where he represented individuals in products liability, class action, and serious personal injury cases throughout the country. Throughout his career, Drew has helped his clients obtain millions of dollars in compensation and resolve high-stakes legal disputes.

Drew has considerable experience in all stages of litigation, from the early investigation of a case to trial. While a trial lawyer at heart, Drew also believes strongly in alternative dispute resolution and has obtained successful results for his clients through pretrial negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. Ultimately, Drew does not subscribe to a “one-size-fits-all” approach to litigation; instead, he believes that each case requires its own creative and solution-driven approach.

Drew holds leadership positions in a number of local and national legal organizations, and speaks throughout the country on issues affecting the civil justice system.
