medical malpractice defense

Our attorneys have more than 100 years of combined experience in the defense of medical malpractice claims. We have litigated cases in every jurisdiction in Maryland and have taken hundreds of cases to verdict in both federal and state courts. When warranted, we have successfully mediated and arbitrated hundreds of other claims.

The most successful medical malpractice litigators are trial lawyers. Opposing counsel know that trial, not settlement, is the preferred end point for our clients. Our “trial first” philosophy enables our clients to vindicate themselves while at the same time ensuring that pre-trial resolution is limited to the cases that truly merit it and the resolutions are in line with their true value.

We represent virtually all individual and institutional health care providers, including:

  • Hospitals
  • Physicians
  • Dentists
  • Certified Physician Assistants
  • Nurses
  • Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners
  • Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists
  • Chiropractors
  • Podiatrists
  • Pharmacists


The successful defense of medical malpractice claims requires experience, relentless attention to detail and the ability to master the complexities of modern medicine. It also requires consistent and comprehensive communication. Our clients are fully engaged in all aspects of their cases from the beginning to the end. This partnership approach produces the best possible result in every case.
