Incorporated in in 1786, the town of Lisbon received its name from Lisbon, Portugal, where many commercial shippers in the area conducted trade from nearby the port of Norwich.

Why do I Need an Attorney?
If you have been hurt in an accident, you are likely wondering whether it is worth hiring an attorney to represent you. In many cases, insurance companies quickly make accident victims seemingly substantial settlement offers, making it seem to some like there is no point in retaining a lawyer.
Individuals who are hurt in an accident should always speak with a lawyer, regardless of the specific circumstances. Even if you end up not having a claim, there is no cost associated with a consultation so there is nothing to lose. In the event that you do have a claim, your attorney will represent you in any settlement negotiations with the insurance company to make sure that you receive the full value of your claim. In the insurance company refuses to make a reasonable offer, your lawyer will likely file a lawsuit on your behalf to make sure you get the compensation that you deserve.
