Have you been injured, abused, neglected or mistreated?
I am a trial attorney who is passionate about representing patients and families who have been victims of poor medical treatment. They deserve a voice. And unfortunately, healthcare providers many times fail to advocate on behalf of their patients. I find it to be rewarding to be a patient advocate in times where doctors and nurses fail to do so. Patients and their families deserve medical care that meets or exceeds the requisite standard of care.
Aside from medical malpractice cases, I have an active trial practice in other areas including personal injury, business, municipal and agricultural litigation. There are some occasions that litigants need representation beyond trial and at the appellate level. Ms. Dodge enjoys representing clients at the appellate level as it requires strong research and writing skills. Advocacy in writing is key.
