Among other areas, the firm focuses on cases in which medical knowledge is as important as legal knowledge. So, unlike other firms, they have an of counsel attorney who is also a clinically experienced doctor (a former head of a hospital emergency room) and another attorney who is a registered nurse, as members of their team. They work closely with clients and other attorneys, from the initial interview through settlement or trial, overseeing medical issues, advising on strategy, and recruiting top-notch medical experts critical to an excellent outcome. Their team, by combining law and medicine, is uniquely qualified to represent you or your organization. They know of no other firm in Utah comprised of an attorney who is also a medical doctor and an attorney who is a registered nurse. This truly is an unbeatable team.
