Professional Liability

Background

Accusations of negligence threaten all industries and professions. No amount of education can prepare professionals for the strain of professional liability litigation. The attorneys that represent these professionals must be experienced trial lawyers with specialized knowledge of malpractice law.

Since 1964, the representation of professionals in liability claims has been central to our trial practice. We are nationally recognized as one of the leading law firms in Southern California for expertise in the representation of professionals in various fields. Our superior skills have resulted in an unmatched number of favorable verdicts for our clients.

We have earned our reputation in the area of malpractice litigation due to our zealous representation of our clients, our willingness and ability to try cases to verdict, and our negotiation skills when settlement is desirable. Moreover, we are aware of the damaging impact claims can have on the public image of professionals, and employ strategies— through early settlement, mediation and arbitration—to reduce the risk to our clients.

We have an outstanding record of success on behalf of our clients, including:

  • Dentists
  • Chiropractors
  • Healthcare Providers
  • Hospitals
  • Oral Surgeons
  • Physicians
  • Physical Therapists
