The award winning firm of Reiter & Walsh focuses solely on birth injury cases. Many law firms that call themselves “medical malpractice” or “birth trauma” firms actually refer their cases to outside firms and then collect a percentage of the settlement or verdict. When our birth injury lawyers help a family, our own attorneys handle the case, and we give personal attention to the child and family we are helping. We take the time to get to know each child so that we have a deep understanding of the child’s lifelong needs.
The partners at Reiter & Walsh have been handling birth injury cases since 1997.
