About Our Wakefield Office
For nearly twenty years, Marasco & 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”.

Although we are the largest law firm in Rhode Island and one of the largest in New England, providing legal care to the injured and disabled, we are proud to be a resource here in our community for our neighbors and friends.

Through our office located on Main Street in Wakefield, we have been able to provide local convenience and personal attention with the strength, expertise, experience, and resources of a distinguished Providence based firm.
"I am a motor vehicle versus pedestrian, accident survivor. Although struck in a crosswalk outside my clinic. As a physician, I’ve had to deal and negotiate with insurance companies in the healthcare arena my entire career. Consequently, I felt that legal counseling would be the safest and most prudent way to approach this unfortunate circumstance. Having researched the numerous legal offices on the internet, Marasco and Nesselbush had a very strong and positive presence, and I must sincerely and wholeheartedly agree.
The Firm, and my M&N attorney, represented me in the most professional and experienced manner, and with ethics of the highest standards, during a significantly emotional time in my life. My M&N attorney was knowledgeable and compassionate about my case and situation. He came to my home the very day I contacted his law firm, thoroughly explained every detail clearly and distinctly, and honestly answered all of my questions. He was genuine, personal, reliable, and patient, offering not only professional support and responsible legal counsel, but also friendship and guidance during a difficult time and situation in my life. He and his staff have earned my deepest trust and respect. I wholeheartedly recommend Marasco and Nesselbush."
- Dr. P
