Review Lisa Esser

About Me

100% of my practice is dedicated to helping those injured as a result of medical malpractice and birth injury receive justice.  I have been successful in obtaining millions for my clients.  In 2010, I was apart of the team that obtained one of the largest medical malpractice jury verdicts in Michigan.  I have handled all varieties of medical malpractice, wrongful death and birth injury cases.  I have been recognized by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star and have been included in National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40.
