Professional Liability Defense
Professionals have a legal responsibility to provide care or service that meets the standard of practice for their profession. When an individual or company fails to provide the requisite standard of practice, liability for damages may arise.
At Meissner Tierney our attorneys have experience defending a broad range of professionals, including accountants, engineers, architects, insurance professionals, investment advisors, lawyers, physicians and realtors against professional liability claims initiated by their clients.
As providers of professional services, we understand the time and money you have invested as well as the responsibility and pride you feel in your professional career. Accordingly, we recognize the importance of working closely with the professional whose reputation and livelihood is at stake when a claim of negligence in providing a professional service is asserted. We recognize that our role includes not only obtaining a favorable outcome, but also protecting your reputation in the process.
