Ford, Quinn, Desmarais Law Firm understands the trust you place in an attorney, because we honor that trust every day. If you have worked with a Massachusetts lawyer who has caused you to suffer losses because of his or her professional negligence, our law firm can pursue the attorney or law firm that is liable to you. We also aggressively pursue medical malpractice claims for our clients.
Most of our legal malpractice cases settle out of court, but we are prepared and willing to go to trial if the nature of the case demands it. Litigating or settling an attorney malpractice claim includes different elements from our personal injury law practice, although we must prove the same paradigm that a failure to fulfill a duty caused loss to the victim.

Victims of serious injury in medical malpractice cases typically face exorbitant hospital fees for treatment, surgery, and rehabilitation along with past, present, and future income losses due to disability. When newborns suffer from cerebral palsy, depending on the severity of the case, the family may be straddled with a lifetime of assistive care. The same is true with other gross medical errors resulting in severe disability. Without a legal team to estimate damages and vigorously advocate compensation through negotiations or trial, many families are left with significant financial burden.
Proving medical malpractice claims requires exceptional skills and experience, access to expert witnesses, and technical understanding of underlying medical negligence. Through decades of combined experience, our firm has developed the high level of expertise necessary to take on medical malpractice cases.
