Free Case Evaluation


The majority of health care providers in Florida are qualified, highly educated professionals that have honorably accepted a challenge to care for the infirmed. The occupation of a dedicated surgeon is often a selfless and under-appreciated job that requires long hours and the ability to make split-second life or death decisions. We should be thankful and appreciate that there are many caring, compassionate, and qualified surgical teams in our state that care for us with great skill and sound medical judgment.

Orlando Medical Negligence Lawyer, Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., and his legal team have respect and admiration for the men and women who perform surgery and save lives every day. We refuse to participate in any frivolous lawsuit against health care providers that have exercised reasonable judgment in the care of a patient. We strongly believe that our skilled medical professionals should not have their medical or surgical practice interrupted by unsubstantiated legal claims. However, we also believe that it is important to pursue meritorious medical negligence cases to protect the rights of the victim when unreasonable treatment has caused significant harm.

Why hire an attorney who’s also a medical doctor?
When the stakes are high, EVERY MOVE MATTERS.
