Marie Flynn Danek - Partner

A founding partner in the firm, she has spent decades successfully defending high exposure cases involving doctors, hospitals, physician groups, nursing homes and long-term care facilities.

When I stand next to a medical professional in court, I understand how important it is to them. I know that their professional life and career are on the line, and I go the extra mile to provide the best defense possible.
