Health Care Litigation

    We guide hospitals, physicians, managed care organizations and other medical providers in a strategic and focused direction.

    Whether the solution is an aggressive motions practice, mediation, arbitration or trial by jury, our attorneys help clients avoid unnecessary litigations, minimize risk when litigation is inevitable and preserve relationships.

    Our health care litigators handle medical negligence, wrongful death lawsuits, licensure and disciplinary proceedings, as well as a wide variety of hearings and appeals for health care entities and organizations.
