What Do We Do?

Professional liability is a specialized area of law.  Claims brought against professionals are defended vigorously with the client’s reputation in mind.  They require counsel with expertise in the applicable standard of care as well knowledge of the law regarding informed consent and causation.  They must recognize the pivotal role of experts and have access to the best ones.  We have many years of experience defending professionals.
