When you meet with a lawyer to have your story heard, you go into it with the hope that they understand your situation very well. At our law firm, you don’t have to hope; we already know what it takes to fight for your rights. That’s because we are an elite team of MD-JDs – lawyers who are also doctors. With backgrounds in both the medical and law field, we use our expertise to formulate a strategic approach aimed towards achieving the best possible outcome. I, myself, Zev T. Gershon, M.D., J.D, am a doctor-turned lawyer whose passion for patient care led me to help patients on a whole other level.
Doctors want to provide the highest level of care for their patients, but sometimes mistakes are made. In some cases where a child develops cerebral palsy or is born with a birth injury, medical malpractice could be at fault. Throughout my years as a doctor-lawyer, I’ve had many families come to me on suspicion that their child’s injuries or condition may be at the hands of medical staff. After hearing a client’s story, I assess the facts to determine if they have a case, and then devise a legal approach aimed towards getting them the compensation they deserve. As a skilled birth trauma attorney based in Baltimore, MD, I have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts for my clients.
How? Well, unlike other legal attorneys, I am well-versed in the healthcare industry. In my previous occupation as a doctor, I’ve experienced the healthcare environment, dealt with medical records and paperwork, spoken specific medical terminology, and witnessed patient care on a daily basis. I draw from these experiences when I represent my clients, which puts them at an advantage. If you need legal help from a cerebral palsy lawyer, I’d like to sit down with you and talk; I’m on your side from day one! No obligations – it doesn’t cost a thing.
A little more about me: I graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science (B.S) in 1981, and received my Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1986. I am also a graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law, where I accomplished my Juris degree (J.D.) in 1989. I’ve received awards as a recognized lawyer from Super Lawyer Magazine and lead the team here at Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC.
