About the Firm | Michigan Birth Injury Attorneys

Michigan Birth Injury, Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) and Cerebral Palsy Attorneys

Reiter & Walsh, P.C. was established to focus exclusively on birth injury cases. Since the firm’s inception in 1997, our legal team has addressed the special needs of our clients in a variety of birth injury, pregnancy and newborn medical malpractice cases. Our attorneys and in-house medical staff determine the causes of our clients’ injuries, the prognoses of birth injured children and areas of medical negligence. We consult closely with leading medical experts, forensic specialists and life care-planning professionals to secure our clients’ future care and their parents’ peace of mind, knowing their child will be cared for, no matter what. Our specific focus on birth injury allows our attorneys to provide unparalleled legal service to our clients.


Our Values

When a loved one suffers a preventable birth injury, it can feel impossible to understand and process the medical and legal aspects of the situation. Families are often left wondering how they will find the support, information and resources necessary to provide for their birth injured loved one. At Reiter & Walsh, these concerns are at the core of our firm’s mission. The following Reiter & Walsh ABC Law Centers firm values guide and shape the work we do and the relationships we have with our client families:

Compassion and Close Communication

Birth injury cases are often long, complex and emotionally demanding. Beyond our focus on delivering unparalleled legal services, our attorneys and staff work to build close, comforting and openly communicative relationships with clients. At every step of the litigation process, our small, family-oriented team is there to support you and keep you informed.

Depth of Focus

Birth injury cases require specific, extensive knowledge of both law and medicine. In order to achieve the best results, our team believes it’s critical to specifically and exclusively handle birth injury cases. As Reiter & Walsh, P.C. founder and attorney Jesse Reiter says, “If you have a brain tumor, you want to go to a neurosurgeon or a brain surgeon. You don’t want to go to a general practitioner. It’s the same thing in the practice of law.”

Transparency

Many firms advertise for birth injury services but ultimately refer cases to other firms for a fee. This is common in birth injury law because so few attorneys specifically handle birth injury cases—clients whose cases fall into the hands of referral firms often have less reliable and more impersonal relationships with their attorneys. At Reiter & Walsh, our small, devoted team handles all cases in-house, working with the families at every step of the process. Additionally, we do not charge until we settle the case in the client’s favor.
