What are the most important factors in choosing a medical malpractice attorney?

If you or a loved one were injured as a result of a mistake made by a doctor or hospital, you may be entitled to compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit. To find out more, you should consult with an attorney, and choosing an attorney is an important decision.

Experience is one of the most important factors. At Joyce & Reyes, we have been representing victims of medical malpractice and other types of injuries since 1984. In those more than three decades, we have been proud to win substantial jury verdicts and settlements for our clients. We are not afraid to take a case to trial when necessary. This willingness to take a case all the way for our clients means that the insurance companies know they cannot get away with settling our cases for less than they are really worth.

Skill is another crucial element in choosing the right attorney. Both Robert Joyce and Lillian Reyes-Joyce have received an “AV” rating from Martindale Hubbell, which is the highest rating available and is only awarded to the top 17 percent of attorneys in the country. In addition, Joyce is certified as a Civil Trial specialist by the Board of Legal Specialization of the Florida Bar, something only seven percent of Florida attorneys can claim.
