How has your practice been affected by the federal health-care reform law?
“The federal health-care reform laws have not significantly impacted my practice areas, which are primarily trial work in the areas of medical malpractice and employment. Any rise in the number of malpractice claims will be offset by the increased safety programs implemented in the hospital setting throughout the United States within the past decade.”
