Experience and Professionalism Working for You

Throughout our 60 years of combined experience, we have developed good relationships with medical professionals and experts. We have handled many cases involving infants who have suffered injuries due to birth trauma, including vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC), skull damage caused by forceps, and brain injuries from being in the birth canal for too long.

In addition to birth injuries, we also handle claims involving defective medical products and devices such as heart valves and pacemakers, as well as dangerous drugs and pharmaceuticals.
