About Joseph

Learn Joseph’s areas of practice.

HAVE YOU BEEN THE VICTIM OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE? THE LICHTENSTEIN LAW FIRM IS HERE TO HELP.

We rely completely on the doctor’s experience and expertise to protect us in times of need. Unfortunately, doctors and hospitals are sometimes negligent in their care of patients, and as a result people can suffer terrible injuries, or even die.

 

Prominent nationally known attorneys have recently  descibed Mr. Lichtenstein's work as follows:

 

"Joe has consistently taken the lead on issues such as maternal forces other related brachial plexus matters. His meticulous research and persuasive arguments have convinced judges to issue favorable rulings that others in our group have tried and failed to achieve. His work helps expose nonsense such as the maternal forces argument and helps us all fight for the injured children we represent.   Thank you Joe. We appreciate your hard work and tireless effort to expose the lies, half truths and junk. I am sure I speak for all of us when I say thank you for allowing us to ride on the coat tails of your fine work."

 

Hiring a skilled and experienced medical malpractice allows individuals and family members to investigate whether the physician's conduct was negligent,. and if it was, to obtain not only justice, but also to seek financial compensation for their losses.

 

The doctors and hospitals hire large firms with highly expereinced and aggressive attorneys, and they fight these cases tooth and nail. The importance of the victims of malpractice also hiring an attorney with years of experience and a proven track record cannot be overstated. It can mean the difference between obtaining a sizable verdict or settlement, or receiving no compensation at all.

 

Joseph M. Lichtenstein has specialized in medical malpractice litigation for 25 years. He has acheived 8 figure verdicts, and  has developed ground-breaking law.

 

At the Law Offices of Joseph Lichtenstein we offer strong and trustworthy representation to those who have been injured. We try to treat every client with the greatest of care, and spare no effort to aceive the best results.

Fabulous Attorney
Mr. Lichtenstein is an excellent and effective attorney. When other attorneys were unwilling to help me, Mr. Lichtenstein rose to the occasion. He was honest and caring, compassionate yet aggressive in my case. My case was a very complex medical malpractice case and there were several stumbling blocks along the way, however Mr. Lichtenstein was able to overcome those obstacles and move our case towards a successful conclusion. I highly recommend him for any legal needs.

Unmatched kindness and compassion
Joe Lichtenstein is not only the best lawyer in this entire world but he is a true compassionate human being who always presents a positive and supportive attitude even when things weren't looking the greatest. My wife and I had a very difficult case to fight ,it took nearly 8 years. Joe did settle our case and saved our lives.Joe went far above his obligations to make sure Sue and I were comfortable and we are forever and his debt. Look no further you have found your lawyer and he will make a difference in your lives, I know he didn't ours.

Strong Lawyer
Mr. Lichteinstein really made me feel as though my case was the only case he was working on. He focused so much on each part of the case to make sure it was handled the right way and I believe he thought of ways to present my case which most lawyers would not have thought of. He is focused and intense in the best way because I wanted a lawyer who was completely for me and on my side. This is what I found in Mr. Lichtenstein. Someone who cared, knew the law and was very strong. It made me glad he was on my side.
