If you are a medical professional or licensed professional and named as a defendant in a claim or civil suit you have the right to request that your insurance company assign a particular lawyer or firm as counsel to defend you. We have litigators with extensive experience and successful defense of malpractice claims and would be pleased to handle such assignments.
