  • Health Insurance and Managed Care Litigation – We represent hospitals on managed care, reimbursement and insurance-related issues. These include coverage questions and usual, customary and reasonable rate issues.
  • Medical Malpractice Defense – Health care professionals who find themselves to be the subject of litigation need attorneys who understand the challenges faced by this unique profession. We realize a lawsuit by a patient takes its toll on your time, your family and your reputation. We defend hospitals, physicians, allied health practitioners, management companies, and drug and medical device manufacturers.  in the defense of personal injury cases involving a wide range of medical specialties.  Our wealth of courtroom experience over the years and our thorough well thought out trial strategies, and pretrial dispute resolution where appropriate, sets us apart from our peers.
