Mark Gemma '97

With a father and brother already practicing law together at Gemma Law Associates, Inc. , Mark Gemma ’97 knew exactly what he was getting into when he decided to become a personal injury lawyer.

“Back when I was in college and deciding what to do for a living, I watched my father and brother,” Gemma said.  “My father had been practicing this type of law for decades and I saw how many people he and my brother were helping with this firm.”

But there was something else about personal injury that appealed to the aspiring lawyer. Not only were his father and brother able to help the injured, they also enjoyed careers that allowed them to interact directly with their clients in meaningful, important relationships.

Today, 12 years after joining the firm, Mark Gemma has become a successful attorney in his own right, recognized nationally for his legal ability and commitment to legal ethics. In December 2009, Gemma received the distinction of an AV Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest recognition of legal excellence of its kind. In addition to serving as President of the Rhode Island Association of Justice, Gemma is the President of the Council of Presidents for American Association of Justice.
