We have successfully defended a wide range of major claims brought against hospitals, doctors, and other health care providers. Our attorneys have participated in pre-trial discovery, trials, appeals, and mediations, as well as other forms of alternative dispute resolution, and have the expertise to advise clients on their risks, options and possible outcomes. We regularly work with expert witnesses in every medical specialty, utilize the best expert witnesses for each case, and are skilled in cross-examining hostile expert witnesses.
