Excellent Lawyer
My case is ongoing and so far Mr. Cline has been very responsive and sympathetic to my situation. He is knowledgeable, caring and also has a wonderful team that supports his efforts. I feel like I am being represented by the best and look forward to the successful resolution of my Da Vinci Robotics liability and Malpractice case.

Update to initial review in 2013
I can’t give my final review yet because my case is still unresolved after 10 years. My original trial date was canceled and rescheduled for 18 months out. I guess I’ll see what happens in April, 2023…oh, my mistake. My next trial date is April, 2024. I’ll keep you posted.

Had my case almost 2 years
Turn down other firms HUGE MISTAKE. I waited 1 year for a phone call NOTHING so I called them. They said they forgot me. Then 1 month later they finally call me for my address. " Say what"? Give my address again for them to send me a letter they are dropping me. When other firms beg me for my case. And I foolishly stay with Cline to be forgotten then drop. Should have pulled out when this person was drop from his firm and went out on his own.
