Medical Malpractice

When visiting the doctor, receiving a diagnosis, undergoing surgery, or battling a condition or disease through treatment, we typically put a high level of trust in our doctors and medical professionals, believing that they are taking every step necessary to keep us safe on the path towards health.

In most cases, this level of trust is justified, as medical professionals strive to help patients heal and prevent illness. Unfortunately, doctors and other medical practitioners are human, and do make mistakes from time to time—some caused by negligent or careless action on their part.

If you or a loved one have questions after receiving medical care, you may wonder if it is the result of medical malpractice (medical negligence). You likely are seeking answers that it seems no one is providing.

Why did this happen? Could this have been prevented? Is the doctor/surgeon at fault?

I understand your frustration. After serving as a medical malpractice attorney for over 30 years, I can answer those questions for you, and if someone is responsible I will hold them accountable.

My Approach to Medical Malpractice Cases

Most firms that deal with medical malpractice, your case may be handed off to associate attorney or paralegal; sometimes you may never even speak directly with the attorney in charge of your case.

I believe that in cases like medical malpractice, where your entire livelihood has been affected by the negligent action of another, you deserve an attorney that will work with you personally. You will be in direct contact with me from the first time we meet until your case is completed.

I understand the frustration you feel as victim of medical malpractice. Rest assured that my firm will handle the legal side of things, fighting for the compensation and justice you deserve. I welcome you to learn more about me, to read about my work, and to hear what my past clients say about working with me.
