Practice Areas - Professional Malpractice

Professional liability claims have been on the rise for years. With the nature of the U.S. legal system, legislative changes such as RICO and Sarbanes-Oxley, and the embracement of the "deep pockets" doctrine by many plaintiffs and plaintiffs' attorneys, it is not unusual for working professionals to stand accused of alleged malfeasance in work performed for both public and private entities.

The Phelan, Phelan & Danek, LLP professional malpractice attorneys understand the gravity of the allegations against their professional clients and are dedicated to protecting their careers and reputations. We provide aggressive and experienced defense for physicians, medical professionals, architects, engineers, developers, construction managers, directors and officers, accountants and other licensed professionals who are accused of professional negligence or malpractice.

Professional liability cases often arise from extremely complex transactions and business deals.
