Eastman & Smith has a broad professional liability practice. The Firm regularly defends physicians of all specialties, chiropractors, dentists, pharmacists, podiatrists, and nurses against malpractice and wrongful death actions. We also represent health care practitioners before their respective state boards in licensing and disciplinary matters.

In addition to representing individual practitioners, the Firm defends institutions such as hospitals, nursing homes and mental health providers from medical and general negligence claims. We also advise these institutions on a variety of risk management issues, ranging from best practices to peer review to credentialing activities.

The Firm's professional liability practice is not limited to health care. We also defend attorneys and other professionals against professional negligence claims.
