Personal Counsel for Physicians

 

Mark Smigiel serves as personal counsel to physicians who have been sued in medical malpractice cases and are being represented by defense counsel hired by their malpractice insurance carrier. El Paso is fortunate to have several excellent medical malpractice defense attorneys. However, because of the stakes involved and for peace of mind, it may be helpful to have personal counsel experienced in medical malpractice litigation to turn to during the course of the lawsuit to more fully understand the process. This service is not intended to supplant or interfere with the role of defense counsel and is therefore typically completely confidential with the client the only person aware of the relationship.
