SWEENEY & SHEEHAN represents a variety of medical and dental care providers against malpractice claims in both State and Federal Courts in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The Firm has earned an excellent reputation in the area of malpractice litigation due to the zealous representation of our clients, our willingness and ability to try cases to verdict, and our negotiation skills when settlement is desirable. The members of the Firm are familiar with medical issues and appropriate expert witnesses. During the course of discovery proceedings, our attorneys take a personal interest in the welfare of their clients, including thorough preparation and counseling of witnesses and ongoing reporting regarding the status of litigation. We are proud of the relationships we have built with medical and dental providers, who request our attorneys in the event they require representation again.
