Professional Liability

Professionals are attractive targets for litigation because they are held to high standards of conduct, and, from a practical standpoint, they tend to carry substantial liability insurance. Allegations of professional misconduct, negligence or malpractice can result in license suspension or revocation — and a sudden end to your ability to make a living.
