More Than 40 Years Of Malpractice Defense Experience

Hall, Schieffelin & Smith, P.A., defended its first medical malpractice case in 1978. Since then, our attorneys have represented healthcare providers in nearly 5,000 medical malpractice cases, often involving major trials. Our clients include self-insured government hospitals, independent hospitals and large healthcare/multi-hospital systems; nursing homes and clinics; as well as individual physicians, nurses and advanced practice providers.

This experience has proven invaluable to our clients when they need defense counsel with a strong understanding of medical malpractice cases and the ability to achieve success from negotiations to the courtroom to appeal.

Our experienced medical malpractice defense lawyers begin working on your case immediately upon notification after a sentinel event or other potential adverse incident by advising clients regarding the preservation of evidence and strategies for achieving confidential risk assessment for potential litigation and the future. We will advise you when you have questions and prevent inadvertent mistakes or oversights from becoming expensive and time consuming issues during the discovery phase of a lawsuit. Our experienced guidance continues all the way through the final appeals process, when necessary.
