The lawyers in our Medical Malpractice Practice Group represent doctors, dentists, and other medical professionals and entities in medical malpractice litigation, credentialing matters, board complaints, and other types of dispute resolution proceedings. We have extensive experience defending medical professionals and entities against all types of malpractice claims, and we routinely secure favorable results for our clients in pre-trial proceedings, at trial and on appeal.

Medical malpractice allegations can have substantial implications beyond potential liability for the damages claimed in the plaintiff’s complaint. When we represent doctors and other medical professionals, we focus not only on avoiding or mitigating any potential liability, but on protecting our clients’ licenses, careers and reputations as well. When we represent clinics, and other facilities and entities, we do so with an eye toward establishing favorable precedent that will help to protect against similar types of claims for years to come.
