Roberta D. Pichini

Practice Areas: Auto / Motor Vehicle Accidents, Auto Defects / Crashworthiness, Class Actions, Medical Malpractice,

Roberta “Bobbie” D. Pichini has built her legal career around her unwavering dedication to representing seriously injured babies, children and adults. In the past 30 years, she has honed her litigation skills in the area of obstetrical malpractice, representing brain-injured children, patients who suffered from a delay in diagnosis of cancer, emergency room errors, patient abuse by medical professionals, and surgical negligence. Bobbie also prosecutes product liability and negligence actions and is especially proud of a suit against a major manufacturer of children's cribs which uncovered a defect that had caused the strangulation of several babies. She has secured numerous seven and eight figure results, including a $15 million verdict against a surgeon who improperly set a patient’s broken bones, resulting in a permanently deformed foot and irreversible nerve damage, a $5.8 million settlement arising from a defective hunting product, and a $5.7 million settlement on behalf of a child who sustained brain injury from a delay in recognizing signs of infection while she was in a hospital’s newborn nursery. 

Bobbie has been recognized as a Top 100 Pennsylvania Super Lawyer and Top 100 Philadelphia Super Lawyer every year since 2007 and as a Top 50 Pennsylvania Women Super Lawyer every year since 2004. She was recognized as a 2015 Best Lawyer and was named the 2014 Lawyer of the Year in the field of Medical Malpractice Law (Plaintiffs) by the Best Lawyer publication. Bobbie was awarded the 2014 Michael J. Musmanno Award, presented annually to an outstanding leader and dedicated defender of the rights of the innocent and injured. In addition, Bobbie was awarded the Sandra Day O'Connor Award by the Philadelphia Bar Association for professional excellence and advancing the role of women in the bar. She was also named as one of four women leaders in Tort Litigation in Pennsylvania and a 2015 Woman of Distinction by The Legal Intelligencer and Philadelphia Business Journal.

The first woman in Pennsylvania to be invited into the prestigious International Academy of Trial Lawyers (membership is limited to 500 lawyers); Bobbie was elected the organization's first woman officer in 2003 and later became the organization’s first woman President in 2011. She is a member of the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Board of Trial Advocates, and the International Society of Barristers (ISOB), an elite by invitation-only group dedicated to preserving trial by jury, the adversary system and an independent judiciary.

Bobbie is an honors graduate of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, Neumann College summa cum laude and Villanova University School of Law cum laude, where she earned the Order of the Coif honors. She is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
