Professional Liability

Professional Liability

At Chartwell Law, our attorneys understand the complex situations that can sometimes expose professionals to claims against them for damages on alleged failures to meet our clients’ expectations or the performance standards within certain professions. We also understand our clients have more at stake than just financial losses, we are sensitive to the impact that claims of malpractice have on our client’s ongoing practice and well-earned reputation.

Malpractice Cases

When confronted with such claims, our trial attorneys are experienced in investigating and handling malpractice claims from onset of a claim through trial, and if necessary, appeal. Our approach is always pragmatic yet detail-oriented, aggressive and sophisticated. We work together with our principals, the insurers and the professionals whom they insure, and our clients in an effort to create and carry out an efficient and effective defense customized to the complexities of each individual case.
