Firm Overview

Our Mission
We are committed to providing healthcare professionals with the most effective legal representation possible. We offer aggressive advocacy enhanced by the agility, efficiency and responsiveness that only a highly focused group of legal specialists can provide. Our experience and reputation allows us to retain leading experts and employ proactive defense strategies to give our clients a strong and effective defense.

Our Approach
Our partners are intimately involved in every aspect of a client’s representation, from intake to resolution. Each partner works closely with a single associate attorney. This ensures two attorneys are devoted to each client’s defense when necessary, without a duplication of effort or cost.

We take an aggressive and proactive approach to litigation. We do not passively wait for plaintiffs to litigate their medical malpractice lawsuit. We use the courts to force plaintiffs and their lawyers to either fulfill their legal obligation to timely and properly prosecute their lawsuit, or force a dismissal of the case. We file motions with the court that we believe we will win, whether to obtain discovery to which we are entitled, or to end the case in our client’s favor. Our aggressive approach leads to superior results for our clients.

We use a team approach in working with our clients and claims specialists. We strongly believe that to provide the most effective representation to our clients, we must earn their trust and utilize their experience, education and training in crafting their defense. We rely on our clients’ insight and opinions, and seek input and collaboration from them at the outset of every case. We work very closely with claims professionals in a coordinated approach, to effectively and efficiently represent the interests of the health care defendant. We strive to build lasting relationships based on trust, respect and confidence.

Our firm emphasizes a common sense approach to litigation, which results in minimizing costs, and a decrease in the length of litigation for the client and his or her carrier. Our lawyers and staff are well aware that our continued long-term success as a firm is based on satisfied clients and cost-effective results. We understand that the more quickly and efficiently we are able to resolve a case, the greater the satisfaction of our clients.
