Reiter has decades of experience in birth trauma litigation, and after working as a defender of hospitals for one of the region’s largest firms, he decided to focus solely on representing children and their families. In 1989, Reiter joined the MAJ, one of the nation’s most powerful pro-plaintiff bar associations, where he advocated for and contributed to laws that protect patients’ rights. Reiter is a board member of several national litigation groups, including immediate past Co-Chair of the Birth Trauma Litigation Group.

Reiter is a regular speaker, organizer and moderator at medical malpractice and birth trauma seminars in the U.S. and internationally. One of his greatest passions is helping injured children and their families, and he attains a great sense of satisfaction from handling the most complex birth injury cases. Reiter thrives on the challenges of cross-examination and he finds nothing more satisfying than a hard-fought case in which a physician or nurse admits to medical malpractice. With over 28 years of experience in birth injury law, Reiter’s expertise has helped him secure over tens of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for his clients. Reiter is unique among other medical malpractice attorneys in that birth injury law is his sole focus. Reiter’s dedication is fueled by his desire to help his young clients obtain their dreams of being as independent as possible.
