Areas of Law Description

Our practice areas are as follows:

-Birth Injury Litigation

Bringing a medical malpractice claim is a complex undertaking. Recovering damages means going up against doctors, hospitals and the high-powered defense lawyers hired by insurance carriers. We are constantly educating ourselves on ways to establish fault to hold medical professionals accountable in failing to meet the accepted standard of care.

- Personal Injury

Our firm is very selective about the types of personal injury and medical malpractice cases we accept. Our focus is on providing legal services in cases involving permanent, life-altering injury or fatality. In short, we pursue claims for the people who did not get better, who will never be able to return to the life they led before the injury.

-Wrongful Death

A wrongful death claim is not about the money. It's about justice, holding doctors, nurses and hospitals accountable for negligence. Our trial lawyers have prevailed in wrongful death litigation on behalf of grieving parents and families.

- Medical Malpractice

Mistakes happen in the medical field. However, when treatment falls below the accepted standard of medical care and injury or death results, it is a case of medical malpractice. If you or someone close to you has been harmed due to negligent medical treatment, we are here to stand up for your rights.
