Drawing upon her background as a registered nurse and her skills as a litigator, Juliann provides our clients with an effective defense in high-exposure medical malpractice lawsuits. On behalf of health care professionals and organizations, Juliann has obtained countless dismissals on summary judgment and has negotiated numerous favorable settlements and discontinuances.

Over the course of her career, Juliann has defended hospitals, nursing homes, physicians, nurses, nurse mid-wives, dentists, physical therapists and other allied health care professionals from malpractice and negligence claims. She has additionally handled a growing number of malpractice cases in the burgeoning field of teleradiology. These claims include failure to properly interpret patient films brought against physicians and companies to which hospitals have outsourced their radiology services. Juliann is also experienced in defending nursing home clients in lawsuits seeking punitive damages under New York Public Health Law Section 2801-d.

Prior to embarking upon a legal career, Juliann worked as a full-time registered nurse focused on the care and treatment of cardiac patients. She continued to work at high-level trauma centers while attending law school. Her dual nursing and legal background allows Juliann to effectively communicate with clients as both a lawyer and confidante. Not only is she able to review and analyze medical records and communicate with experts, she also understands through first-hand experience the challenges that physicians and nurses face when caring for patients.
