Attorneys With an Interest and Experience in Suing Kaiser and the For Profit Permanente

Before scrolling to the Attorney list please read the following.  You will need to know this information to make an informed decision as to how to proceed.

In the event you are planning on contacting any attorney regarding medical malpractice, negligence, wrongful death or anything non emergency related please follow this link: 

http://legalstuff.kaiserpapers.org/prepareatt.html
 

The following is a list of attorneys that have an interest in representing victims of the Kaiser system.  All have experience with the Kaiser Arbitration System.  I am not receiving anything from any of these attorneys for posting their contact information here.  Neither is any member of our organization.  These are all individuals that to the best of my knowledge have a sound reputation and advocate for the patient, not Kaiser.  Any suggestion that I or any member of KPRC or MCRC makes regarding contacting any of these attorneys is based solely on who I or anyone else involved believes may be someone you may be interested in working with.  None of us are receiving financial reward, gifts, vacations, etc., from any of these people.  They are listed solely because of their reputation of advocating on behalf of the victim and their family.  If at any time the implication is made by anyone to the contrary of the above statement please immediately contact me Vickie at: Vickie@kaiserpapers.org.  I will promptly address the matter and find the source of said statement and put an end to it immediately. 

NOTICE:  If any attorney  cannot answer your questions in a timely manner consider it a red flag and find another attorney.  You only have one year (this can be extended)  to obtain an attorney, if you retain an attorney that makes you do all the work and drags this out find another another attorney immediately.
