Healthcare & Professional Liability | Maine Malpractice Lawyers

Our attorneys have extensive experience representing doctors, hospitals, practice groups, and other forms of healthcare providers in claims of professional negligence or malpractice cases.



Healthcare & Professional Liability


We have extensive experience representing and defending physicians, hospitals, nurses, therapists, and other health care providers in cases involving claims of professional negligence and malpractice. We also represent other professionals in liability and malpractice actions, and have successfully defended real estate brokers and agents, architects, lawyers, and insurance producers. We recognize that our professional clients in these cases want and need to be well informed about and involved with the strategy and defense of the case at all stages in the litigation, and we ensure that you are. We understand the personal impact these cases have on a professional person, and we commit to working together to find and reach the best possible result.

Our health care and professional liability expertise extends well beyond the courtroom.  For instance, the credentialing and complaints processes in state government can be tortuous for any professional in Maine. We have helped many of our clients navigate potentially tricky waters by providing expert, timely, and clear advice and representation before professional boards of licensure in credentialing and disciplinary matters.
