Bruce Fagel is the most knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney I have ever had the pleasure to work with. One of the reasons he has such a strong track record winning cases for his clients is his strong medical background. In addition to practicing medical malpractice law for 30 years, he is also a licensed medical doctor who practiced emergency room medicine for over 10 years. This is a very rare combination to find an attorney who is also a licensed doctor.

Thomas Alch Medical Malpractice Attorney

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This sanction means the attorney had a suspension placed on hold (and ultimately removed) by complying with certain requirements.
Bruce’s comment: “The discipline involved an incident which occurred over 10 years ago involving one parent accepting a settlement offer on behalf of their child without consulting the other parent who did not speak English and could not attend the settlement hearing. The court later approved the settlement for the child over the mother’s objection.”
