How do you help businesses and individuals?
Unfortunately, malpractice claims are an increasingly frequent reality for physicians. When physicians find themselves ensnared in litigation, it is my duty to employ all pertinent law to absolve them of liability. However, litigation is a profoundly human and not just a legal experience. A lawsuit can be a frightening, foreign and confusing event for physicians who stand accused of causing harm to patients they've spent a lifetime and career protecting. I embrace sharing this emotional journey with my physicians.
What is the most important advice that you have given a client?
Humbly have confidence in yourself. You are well trained, educated and experienced. Just because a patient suffers a complication and injury does not mean that you or anyone else has done something wrong or are otherwise at fault.
What case did you find the most rewarding to work on?
Every case I have worked on is unique. While there may be similarities in the applicable law, each case has a unique set of facts and a unique set of witnesses. I am privileged to participate in the defense of health care professionals and have met many wonderful people as a result.
