Representative Matters

Whistleblower. Represented our client against a physician plaintiff who brought a claim under Health & Safety Code Section 1278.5. We pursued a strategic and investigative approach and were successful in demonstrating that the plaintiff’s whistleblower claims were without merit. In a mere 3 ½ hours after a 4-week trial, we secured a unanimous verdict in favor of our client.
