Each day, healthcare professionals carry out their jobs with the knowledge that the procedures they perform may not go as planned.

Medical Malpractice Claims
In order to prevail on a medical malpractice claim, a plaintiff must prove that he sustained injury as a direct result of the medical treatment and that the treatment did not meet the minimum standard of care required of a reasonable and prudent medical professional. Our law firm holds plaintiffs to their burden of proof and seeks to have frivolous claims dismissed as soon as possible. Using expert medical witness testimony, we challenge medical malpractice claims at every juncture.
Protecting Your Career and Personal Resources
Healthcare professionals, especially physicians, are exposed to extreme risk when a lawsuit is brought against them. If the amount of financial recovery sought by an injured plaintiff is more than the medical malpractice insurance covers, the personal assets of a healthcare professional can be put in significant jeopardy. In addition, these types of lawsuits can be professionally damaging and result in a permanently tarnished reputation among both patients and peers.
Medical Professional Discipline
Another important practice area of our firm is representing doctors, nurses, and other licensed medical professionals in hearings before state and federal licensing boards. After a patient makes an allegation of medical malpractice, the state licensing board may either temporarily or permanently suspend a medical professional’s license. We represent medical professionals during the initial investigation and throughout the legal appeal of a suspended medical license.
