We have an unparalleled reputation for providing the highest quality defenses in medical malpractice cases, which is the result of successfully resolving many malpractice cases, including defense verdicts in jury trials.  Our health care team includes an MD/JD and a RN who assist in investigating, evaluating and defending malpractice and liability claims. 

In addition to complex medical malpractice cases, FPB attorneys represent health care professionals in claims against their state license, contract disputes, premises liability claims, and employment related matters.  We also collaborate with health care clients and their risk managers to avoid or reduce potential liability issues.
