Professional service providers rely on Jones, Skelton & Hochuli to represent them when their ethics or actions are called into question. Our attorneys have substantial trial experience protecting and defending professionals in all types of industries, including insurance agents, architects, doctors, lawyers, engineers, board directors and officers, and real estate agents and brokers. Medical malpractice, breach of contract and alleged billing improprieties are just a few of the many issues we’ve helped clients successfully address. We also are regularly called on to represent our clients before licensing and professional oversight boards and agencies.
We understand the devastating effects that claims of negligence, oversight, malpractice and malfeasance can have on our clients’ careers, businesses and personal lives. With proper preparation and planning, our attorneys can help professionals decrease their risk of being the focus of such claims. Partnering with clients to identify potential risks and implement risk management strategies is key to building a proactive defense.
When claims do go to court, our attorneys have the training and experience to effectively defend and strenuously advocate for our clients. Many of our attorneys are members of the American Board of Trial Advocates and the American College of Trial Lawyers. We also are active in organizations associated with the practice of professional liability, including Professional Liability Underwriters Society and the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel Professional Liability Committee.
