Practice AreasHave you ever heard the old saying, "A jack of all trades, and a master of none?" Hiring an attorney is an important decision, so make sure that the attorney you select has experience in your specific type of issue or case.
Our litigation practice is focused on the following types of cases. If you need a lawyer, contact us for a complimentary evaluation of your case.
Medical Malpractice and Brain Injury
According to a 2000 study by the National Institute of Medicine, as many as 98,000 Americans die and another million people are injured each year by preventable medical errors.
When you go to a hospital or doctor for treatment, you are placing your life in their hands and trust them to know what they are doing. The law requires hospitals, doctors, and nurses to be competent and responsible for following national standards of care—and when they do not follow those rules, and a patient is injured or killed because of it, there has been medical malpractice.
A medical malpractice claim can be brought by an injured patient, or the surviving family members of a person who was killed as a result of medical malpractice, against any healthcare provider, including hospitals, doctors, nurses, psychologists and psychotherapists.
We have represented clients in litigation involving a broad swath of medical negligence, including babies who suffer permanent brain damage from birth-related negligence, brain injuries, surgical malpractice, improper dialysis care, anesthesia-related malpractice and many others.
Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
When someone has been injured by another party’s negligence or wrongful act, then you may have a personal injury claim. When another party’s negligence takes someone’s life, then there may be a wrongful death claim. Individuals or businesses may be the cause of a personal injury or wrongful death, and the law allows them to be held accountable in court.
Personal injury and wrongful death claims may arise from medical malpractice, work injuries, explosions, serious car wrecks and dangerous or defective projects, just to name a few. We have represented personal injury and wrongful death clients in numerous types of cases, including pipeline explosions, defective products, pharmaceutical/drug defects, bad surgical devices and many others.
Business lawsuits come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Sometimes a consumer is forced to sue a business, and other suits involve disputes between two businesses. We have represented business clients in a variety of business lawsuits, including builder-home buyer disputes, commercial lease disputes, breach of contract matters, breach of corporate sales agreement actions, fraudulent inducement cases, declaratory judgment actions, deceptive trade practice suits, and even suing a water board to enforce the terms of a park bond issue to fund acquisition of real estate.

I survived a horrible situation with a surgeon and called Painter Law Firm for help. Robert Painter, Linda, Julie, Catharine, Sharon, and everyone at the law firm were so nice and treated me like family. Mr. Painter didn't use big words, but explained things to me like a regular person. We went to mediation and got a good settlement for my case. It took a big weight off my shoulders. I'm grateful to them and the Lord for all of their help.
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Painter Law Firm. I was a young mother of 2, needing legal help with my newly born son. I was new to it all, and he guided me through it all. He helped me and my family in the welfare of our son in so many ways. My family and I will forever be grateful to him. Not only is Mr. Painter a wonderful lawyer, he treats you like family, along with his amazing staff. I am so happy I found him. I recommend anyone needing legal help, to choose this firm. It was one of the best things our family have ever done.
Robert Painter of the Painter Law Firm was absolutely brilliant! My case became very complex but Mr. Painter strategized and executed the plan with precision and perfection to the point he was able to head off potential downfalls and we were prepared. He fought for me and the injustice of the situation with extreme passion. It was impressive to watch him quickly use case law to combat the defendants arguments and objections with his knowledge of the law. The entire office is professional and courteous. You will not go wrong using this law firm!! It is not often we need legal representation but when I do, I will call The Painter Law firm to ensure I will be treated with respect and know they are fighting for me.
Mr. Painter is extremely friendly and made time to listen to my story, although it was rather difficult for me to talk about. He was informative and realistic about my case, but more importantly, he was very honest. It breaks my heart that my husband will only see his daughters from Heaven but it puts my mind at rest knowing that justice was somewhat served.....and this could possibly save someone else's life from ending.
