We have substantial experience in:

Managing Crises. Reaching Favorable Outcomes.

With our exceptional body of legal and medical knowledge, we also provide consultation to hospital risk managers regarding risk reduction strategies and quality improvement. We have successfully tried cases on behalf of acute care hospitals and have been particularly successful in obtaining voluntary dismissals or judgments following Motions for Summary Judgment on behalf of our organizational clients.

Our attorneys are mindful of organizational objectives and the disruptive effect that litigation has on an organizational client’s operations. For this reason, we aggressively pursue a dismissal or judgment in the client’s favor at the earliest opportunity.
