We know that one's professional reputation and one's business are critical. Our professional liability attorneys skillfully represent doctors, hospitals, and nurses as well as attorneys, accountants, veterinarians, architects, and engineers. Our team has tried hundreds of cases to verdict, and has successfully represented countless clients before licensing and ethics boards and in administrative processes, hearings, arbitrations, and mediations.

We work as a team with our clients to learn the subject matter of their business or profession in depth, whether it be medicine, accounting, or subspecialties of the law. Our philosophy is that to protect the interests of our clients, we must know their businesses as if they were our own.

We also take a proactive role in representing our clients. Our lawyers advise business professionals on the risk management tools and strategies that can help ensure that a claim can be successfully defended or, better yet, avoided altogether.
