If you are a physician, a medical malpractice claim can have an adverse impact on your practice. When you are named as a defendant in a malpractice lawsuit, it is critical to secure an attorney who possesses substantial experience in aggressively defending physicians against malpractice claims through trial.

Collectively, we have tried numerous medical malpractice and other insurance defense cases to verdict, consistently obtaining excellent results. Many of these cases have involved catastrophic injuries such as hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, permanent cognitive impairment, amputation and death.
