Malpractice Law

Every day, professionals make decisions that affect the lives of their clients.  Not every bad outcome is the result of negligence, but every outcome carries the risk of a potential malpractice lawsuit.

Practitioners can be increasingly distracted from their practices as they are forced to devote more attention to the complexities of business planning, organization and potential legal concerns.  The attorneys at Towne, Ryan & Partners, P.C. bring valuable experience in the areas of malpractice allegations, contracts with professional colleagues, employment of staff, practice affiliations and mergers and commercial lease negotiations.  We also represent medical professionals and help them maintain their licenses in administrative hearings.

We are experienced in investigating cases to determine if negligence has occurred and in relentlessly advocating for our clients if the case ends up in litigation.

Our malpractice experience includes:

  • Attorney malpractice defense
  • Equine malpractice defense
  • Defense in administrative hearings
  • Office of Professional Discipline (OPD) hearings
