Professional Liability

Are you a lawyer, doctor, ophthalmologist, engineer, real estate broker or dentist, or a nursing home, hospital or other professional who is being sued for malpractice?

When a client or customer of a professional alleges negligence by the professional, the professional may be sued under professional liability standards. There are standards in each profession that, in addition to the ordinary standard of care all of us must comply with (reasonableness), professionals must also comply with the standards of care for practitioners in their specific industry, whether it is the legal, medical, engineering, accounting or real estate profession. Several examples include:

  • Dental malpractice.
  • Accounting fraud.
  • Accounting malpractice.
  • Real estate malpractice.
  • Engineering malpractice.
  • Medical malpractice.
  • Professional malpractice.
  • Pharmacy / Pharmacist.
  • Property managers.
  • Inspectors / Appraisers.

We will vigorously defend the claim and act in your best interest, whether it is through out-of-court resolution, judicial resolution through jury trial or motion practice, or dismissal of suit with confidentiality agreements.
