For nearly twenty years, Marasco and Nesselbush has maintained an office in Wakefield to provide trusted legal care to our local clients. Although our primary location is on Westminster Street in Providence, we know that many of our South County friends do not wish to travel “north of the tower.” Our Wakefield office is located on Old Tower Road just off Tower Hill Road. Because one of our firm partners and other members of our team live in South County, we know how important it is for you to have the resources of a prominent firm here in your backyard. Clients in and around Wakefield receive convenient, personal attention with the strength, expertise, experience, and resources of a distinguished Providence-based firm. We also have three other offices to serve residents in neighboring areas: Providence, Woonsocket and Warwick.

In addition to helping clients resolve their legal issues and recover from an injury, our team members are deeply committed to the communities where we live and work. In Wakefield, we have been able to provide legal care to so many of our neighbors and friends that we’ve come to know through local institutions like the South County YMCA, Narragansett and North Kingstown Schools, The Prout School, Monsignor Clarke School, and local Little Leagues. We’ve also had the privilege of working with residents we know through other affiliations, such as the Narragansett Lions Club and St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church.


"For anyone who is really looking for a team of Attorneys that will fight for you every second of the way, this here is the team you want and need in your corner. Attorney Ryan Kelley and his team helped me through such a difficult time after my accident. The stress of thinking what happens next was lifted off my shoulders.

Communication is key for me, and my M&N team was on point with the level of communication they provided. The get-well cards and flowers after surgery were just a special touch that brightened my day. I wasn't treated like another number or another case, they really made me feel like family. They really care for you and your wellbeing. Words will never express but I will forever be grateful for all they have done for me. Thank you !!!!!"

Car Accidents

Marasco & Nesselbush car accident lawyers in Wakefield, RI, have experience in representing victims of many types of motor vehicle accidents – from a simple fender-bender, to head-on collisions. Our lawyers will help you gather the evidence of fault of the driver responsible for your accident and firmly negotiate a just settlement with their insurance company. We are prepared to represent you in court if those negotiations fail.

Truck Accidents

In the case of a truck accident, a personal injury claim is usually filed against the trucking company rather than the truck driver. Such companies often employ large insurance companies who are known to aggressively counter any financial claims against them. That is why you need a lawyer experienced in going against large insurers. If you were injured in a truck accident, Marasco & Nesselbush attorneys will passionately represent your interests and fight for your compensation, be it through a settlement or a jury verdict.

< More items >

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents often happen when a car driver does not exercise a sufficient level of care and caution. Drivers often fail to notice motorcycles in the oncoming traffic which can result in collisions and serious injuries to a motorcycle rider. Marasco & Nesselbush motorcycle accident lawyers in Wakefield, RI, can help. We have years of experience in building a strong personal injury claim with high chances of success.

Medical Malpractice

All doctors, health care institutions, and other medical professionals are obliged to treat their patients according to a certain standard of care. Those who suffered negative medical outcomes because of low-quality health care are entitled to financial compensation as victims of medical malpractice. If your health worsened due to misdiagnosis, wrong medication, botched surgery, or through some other medical mistake, please contact Marasco & Nesselbush medical malpractice lawyers immediately. We will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your case and advise you on the best legal options available to you.

Workers Compensation

If you suffered an accident at work in which you sustained injuries, you are entitled to financial compensation for your medical expenses, as well as past and future lost wages. A Marasco & Nesselbush lawyer experienced in work-related accidents will help you correctly fill out the application in such a way as to maximize the amount of compensation. We will also represent you if your employer is uncooperative or unwilling to pay out the compensation you deserve.

< More items >

Social Security

Your chances of obtaining SSDI are likely to be much higher if you decide to be represented by a lawyer. A Marasco & Nesselbush attorney specialized in SSDI cases will help you choose the most suitable application form and fill it out correctly. Thanks to the assistance of an attorney, you won’t miss out on your chance to obtain SSDI due to some procedural mistake. Your attorney will also represent you at a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge and advise you on how to proceed with an appeal if your application has been initially rejected.
