Our History

The History of Lapointe Insurance

At our core, we genuinely care about our clients. Our goal is for everyone who walks through our door, sends an email, or reaches us by phone, to feel welcome and at home with us. That’s the kind of service Herman W. Lapointe taught us. And that’s the service we strive to deliver every day.

Ambitious Beginnings…

His mother warned him against it. But after training with a respected local insurance agent for 12 years, he felt ready to take the leap. So in 1972, Herman W. Lapointe left his stable job at the post office in pursuit of full-time business ownership. Thus began the Lapointe Insurance Agency.

A Tragic Test…

On May 11, 1982, tragedy struck the community of Fall River, MA. The historic Notre Dame caught fire and spread to the surrounding community. About 27 homes and businesses across five city blocks were damaged. At least 100 families were displaced.

At this low point, Lapointe Insurance was there to help the local community heal from the disaster.

A Growing Agency…

Since our agency first opened its doors, a lot has changed. Our family has grown! Our staff has tripled in size, and we are so blessed to have such kind-hearted, genuine people join our agency family. And throughout its history, our agency has seen three generations of Lapointes at the helm.

The business has grown, too. We’ve since found a home on Fall River’s historic North Main Street. And we are now incredibly fortunate to service people all over Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Hampshire.
