We counsel and defend lawyers, insurance agents and brokers, financial advisors, appraisers, accountants, nurses, and other professionals when they are sued for doing—or not doing—something in their professional capacity.
A malpractice suit presents unique challenges to the defendant/professional. It disrupts your work-life and often gets carried home to interrupt sleep. Your reputation, your livelihood and sometimes your professional license hang in the balance. We have been here before. We have decades of experience defending malpractice claims and defending disciplinary and professional licensing claims. We are prepared to deal with all aspects of these cases.
Our first goal is to quickly understand your file and the relevant specifics of your field of practice. We strive to correctly analyze the claim as soon as possible. What is the exposure? Should the case be postured for trial or settlement? What is the shortest road to our desired result? We don’t want to understand the case as discovery takes place. We need to understand the claims and the evidence before the plaintiff does, and use that knowledge to our advantage.
In short, we strive to achieve the best possible outcome in the fewest number of steps and with the least disturbance to your practice or business. That is the path we seek and the goal we work toward from the beginning to end of every case.
