My life was forever changed when I had a knee surgery that went horribly wrong in 2009.
I have never felt so powerless. I was fighting to keep my business, my leg and most of all my sanity.
When I set out to find an attorney to represent me, I realized that the real fight hadn't even begun. Malpractice law is a very small niche that I believe only the biggest hearts choose to practice. I was told by a multiple lawyers that infection cases are too hard to win and they wouldn't take my case. Then, I met Mr. Righthand.
He is professional, compassionate, ethical and extremely knowledgeable.
He held my hand & listened when I needed it. I had never gone through a law suit before so trust me, I needed it. Mr. Righthand was patient and fought for me every step of the way.
If you have the misfortune of being in a malpractice law suit, Mr. Righthand is the advocate you need.

Scott Righthand exceeded my expectations during a hard time in my life suffering with a severely broken wrist. He was honest and straightforward, and didn't promise anything he couldn't deliver. The whole process took three years (wasn't going to file a claim but a friend suggested I should, so I waited almost a year) but I'm very happy in the end. I feel I got a good amount for my injury. His assistant Laura was very thorough and helpful at preparing the documents. They are a professional team and would recommend Scott to anyone.

We engaged Scott as our attorney for a (successful) wrongful death lawsuit.
We found Scott via a recommendation from a family friend (a defense attorney)! Evidently, Scott's reputation was formidable enough for even a malpractice DEFENSE lawyer to recommend him. We couldn't be more thankful for that recommendation. Scott provided insight, knowledge, compassion, and comfort, as we were going though an extremely difficult family loss. Never once did he come across as discouraged or doubting. He was consistently enthusiastic, and ALWAYS available for communication. He was extremely accommodating, often commuting hours out of his way to meet in a location closer to our home, and his personality was always engagingly warm and open. He made us feel comfortable in the often uncomfortable arena of litigation. I cannot say enough complimentary things about Scott and our experience with him. We can only offer our endless gratitude for his efforts and our appreciation of his impressive skill.
Thank you, Scott.
