I am passionate about standing up for those who have been harmed or even killed from needless medical malpractice. Since 2006, I have exclusively represented patients and their families in medical malpractice, brain injury, wrongful death and serious personal injury cases.
I bring some unique experiences to my law practice. I started my educational career in medicine and then became a hospital administrator. After law school, I worked for a large prestigious defense firm, defending doctors and hospitals.
In 2005, I started Painter Law Firm so I could devote my career to helping patients and their families. I sincerely believe that one of the major ways we see improvements in medicine is through the legal system. Time after time, clients tell me that they do not want the same medical malpractice to happen to someone else. I am proud to work every day to make hospitals and medicine safer for everyone.
Dinosaurs and Mongolia
In addition to my medical malpractice work, I handle some complex business matters. Without a doubt, the most interesting case of my career in this area involves a Tyrannosaurus bataar dinosaur that was smuggled out of Mongolia.
I represent the Government of Mongolia and the President of Mongolia, Tsakhia Elbegdorj. One Friday evening in May 2012, I was asked to take legal action to stop a dinosaur from being auctioned in New York City.
Ultimately we won and the dinosaur (and several others) will be on its way back to Mongolia in early 2013. It is safe to say that I am one of very few lawyers who has saved a dinosaur. More importantly, though, I believe this shows my commitment to my clients to do everything possible to fight for their rights.
