Skilled and experienced representation in serious birth injury litigation
Our three partners average nearly 30 years of trial experience each, so we know how to identify and overcome difficult problems of proof. We work with outstanding obstetric professionals whose expert opinion will be necessary to support your claim of malpractice against a doctor, nurse or hospital.

We help families get the money they will need to ensure the best possible care, treatment and future quality of life for children injured by negligent care or procedures before, during and immediately after delivery. Our lawyers know how to establish liability in such birth injury cases as the following:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Severe fetal distress
- Permanent brain damage due to inadequate oxygen
- Serious scarring or disfigurement
