Health Law


Jackson & Campbell has practiced health law for over five decades.  The lawyers in our group have combined experience exceeding 75 years.  There is no savvier group of attorneys to turn to when faced with a malpractice suit or career impugning investigation.  Our firm is centrally located in Washington, D.C. with lawyers practicing there as well as all over Maryland and Virginia.  We have secured defense verdicts in all three jurisdictions and are widely respected as fierce advocates. We defend our own verdicts when they are challenged and have experience drafting appellate briefs and arguing before various courts of appeals.  When necessary, we turn to our firm’s Appellate practice group for support.

Our malpractice cases are defended by a team of professionals who work hard to maximize result, avoid duplication of effort, and ferret out the details necessary to enhance the defense.  We retain the best experts and advance strong, creative defensive theories.  We prepare our health care providers meticulously so they know what developments to expect before they occur and are not blindsided in any adversarial setting.  We pride ourselves on keeping our clients informed on new developments in their cases.

Our privacy breach managements and Board investigation defenses include not only addressing the matter at hand but also a comprehensive review of the health care provider’s office policies and procedures to insure compliance with federal and state regulations.
