The Most Comprehensive Knowledge for Successful Medical Malpractice Defense
In this litigious era, medical malpractice claims are a valid concern for healthcare professionals. The art and science of medical care is imperfect, despite the best efforts of the most qualified physicians and state-of-the-art technology. Yet patients, plaintiffs, attorneys and juries do not always understand this fact.

We are well versed in the medical negligence laws of Oregon and Washington and a wide variety of medical issues.
