Tetzel Law is a result driven law firm with principles of efficiency, attention to detail, active communication with their clients, and aggressive representation through litigation or trial.

Paul represents clients in both State and Federal courts in a broad range of civil litigation cases, including nursing home negligence, medical malpractice, product liability, professional malpractice, automobile accidents, wrongful death, construction accidents and bad-faith insurance claims. He has successfully resolved his cases through trial, mediation or settlement, many of which resulted in six or seven figure recoveries. Paul takes an aggressive and technical yet professional approach in the representation of all his clients, advocating to obtain the maximum result in each case. He has extensive experience in all stages of litigation, most notably trial practice and alternative dispute resolution.

Paul attended Suffolk University Law School in the evening while working full-time at a Greater Boston law firm.

Paul is originally from Central Massachusetts and obtained his undergraduate degree in Business Administration and Management from Bentley University. At Bentley, he excelled both in the classroom and on the football field. He was a Division II First Team All-American defensive back and captain his senior season, as well as a three-time All-Academic selection.
