Having spent nearly a decade at the intersection of law and medicine, Keith has dedicated his career to defending health care providers and other entities in courtrooms, administrative tribunals, and everywhere in between. He works with clients that require more than a strong trial lawyer; they need an attorney who understands the relationship between law and medicine and who will work tirelessly to protect their rights, interests, and bottom line.

Keith has partnered with clients to develop career-long relationships that transcend any specific case and instead focus on allowing health care providers to be just that and leave the legal issues to him. His significant experience includes:

  • Defending physicians and health care entities in medical negligence litigation.
  • Assisting health care entities in business litigation including contract disputes and employment claims.
  • Helping medical and nursing educational institutions in business litigation including contract disputes and employment claims.
  • Assisting physicians and health care entities with physician credentialing and medical staff issues.
  • In a multimillion dollar acquisition of national hospital chain, spearheaded a comprehensive review and analysis of current and potential litigation claims against the acquired entities for the benefit of the acquiring entity.
  • Defended claims of fraud brought by multiple nursing students against a nursing school regarding job prospects on graduation.
  • Defended an internal medicine physician against claims that he negligently prescribed contraindicated prescription medication.
  • Defended claims against an obstetrician that he negligently permitted a patient to labor in the face of signs and symptoms supporting cesarean section.
  • Defended claims against a nursing staff that it negligently permitted a patient to labor in the face of signs and symptoms supporting cesarean section.
  • Defended a global technology company against allegations of breach of contract in a dispute over software licenses.
