What to Look for in a Malpractice Lawyer

If you’ve experienced malpractice at the hands of a physician or other health care professional that’s left you or a loved one with injury or loss, then you understand the importance of being able to trust the integrity and ability of professionals.

Medical malpractice can completely alter a person’s life, causing them physical pain, loss of work and wages, inability for self-care, costly medical expenses, and can even cost them the life of a loved one. That’s why it’s important to choose a medical malpractice lawyer well. The right malpractice attorney can help recover losses through compensation. When looking for the right attorney, look for the following characteristics:

Compassion and Trust

People who have suffered from malpractice have endured pain, emotional hurt, and loss. It’s important that your malpractice lawyer understands what you’re going through and can communicate compassion. This compassion will help them to seek your best in each case, so that you receive the best result. It’s also vital that you work with an attorney you can trust. If you don’t feel that they care about you or your losses, or are just looking to get paid, this isn’t the lawyer for you.

The malpractice lawyers at Moraitakis and Kushel understand that every case is a life, not just a number. As you or your loved one seek to regain independence and quality of life, our goal is to help you find resolution to help you move forward.

Good Reviews

While not every review can speak to the character of an attorney or firm, the overall picture of how clients feel at their firm can speak volumes. If a good portion of their previous clients are dissatisfied, especially with the level of care they received, this isn’t the lawyer for you. The majority of client and business reviews should be positive.

Moraitakis & Kushel has hundreds of positive client reviews. They were also featured in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Law Firms of 2017, in the 2016 Top 100 Lawyers by the ASLA, and have a 10.0 Avvo Rating for Top Attorneys in Medical Malpractice.


A malpractice lawyer should have extensive experience with medical cases and a proven track record of results. If they don’t have experience with injury cases, especially in malpractice cases, this may not be the right lawyer for you.

One of the most important things to look for in a malpractice lawyer is results. You’ve already suffered losses, so it’s important to find someone who can help you recover those losses, at least in part.
