This is an interesting and frightening example of how "tort reform" and public safety are mutually exclusive: http://goo.gl/CsUOHf

I've flown Singapore business class many times from San Francisco to Seoul. After Derek's experience, I think I'm going to start saving frequent flyer miles to try this out. Wow!

Story
Tagline
I'm an aggressive, smart trial lawyer focused on serious medical malpractice & brain injury cases.
Introduction

I am a trial lawyer. I founded Painter Law Firm PLLC in 2005.

Every day I help real people who've suffered catastrophic injuries because of medical negligence. I have significant litigation experience in medical malpractice, brain injury and serious personal injury lawsuits. 

My initial career focus was science and medicine. My college degree is in biology. I received a full tuition scholarship to medical school from the U.S. Army. In my second year of medical school, I decided to pursue my interest in health law instead.

I was previously a hospital administrator.  After medical school, I served two years as an officer in the U.S. Army, as a hospital administrator at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. I learned the ins and outs of hospital management, including quality of care and accreditation standards.

I know how hospitals and doctors think. I was previously associated with Houston's largest law firm, Fulbright & Jaworski, LLP, where I represented hospitals, doctors and other health care providers. I know the strategies and techniques that defendants use to try to avoid responsibility for the harm that they cause to my clients.

I am a leader in the legal industry. I'm the editor-in-chief of The Houston Lawyer magazine. I have a perfect 10 rating by Avvo. Martindale Hubbell awarded me with  its highest award, the coveted AV designation. Painter Law Firm has been consistently recognized for multiple years as a Better Business Bureau Pinnacle and Award of Distinction winner. Click here to read more about my experience and recognition.

I believe that my background gives me a unique perspective on medical malpractice cases. My firm and I work hard for our clients to get the best results.

Bragging rights
I'm not intimidated or afraid to take on any hospital or doctor who's harmed my clients.
