Chartwell Law Adds 12 Lawyers From the Wadsworth Huott Firm;

Continues Growth of Florida Practices


                The Chartwell Law Offices, LLP, announced that it is incorporating 12 Florida lawyers from the former Wadsworth Huott law firm, increasing Chartwell’s presence in Florida to 30 attorneys.  Chartwell now has offices in offices in Tallahassee, Orlando, Jupiter, Fort Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, and Miami and litigates cases throughout the entire state of Florida.

                Wadsworth Huott was a renowned defense firm handling high exposure litigation for national retailers, trucking companies, insurance carriers and self insured companies. 

                Chartwell was founded in Valley Forge, Pa. by four lawyers in 2002.   Following rapid growth and the opening of offices in Pittsburgh, Scranton, Philadelphia and Harrisburg, PA, Chartwell expanded into New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts and Florida.  Chartwell focuses on a wide array of matters including Admiralty and Maritime Law, Auto Law, Cargo and Trucking, Commercial Litigation, Construction Litigation, Creditors’ Rights, Employment and Labor Law, General and Professional Liability, Insurance and Reinsurance Coverage and Defense, Products Liability, Property Insurance and Workers’ Compensation cases.  With the addition of the Wadsworth Huott attorneys, Chartwell grows to over 110 attorneys.

                Charles Barreras, one of Chartwell’s founding partners, added:  “Chartwell was impressed by the close personal and professional relationships these lawyers have forged with their clients.  We felt that combining forces with these lawyers would create tremendous synergies and cross-marketing opportunities for all involved.  These litigators bring with them a tremendous amount of trial experience, which deepens Chartwell’s bench strength for a broader array of work throughout Florida”   

                 “We will continue to expand our firm, both geographically and by practice area, whenever we come across talented litigators who are also good people.  Our newest lawyers certainly fits that bill,” noted Chartwell CEO Cliff Goldstein.
