Baltimore Medical Malpractice Attorneys and Nursing Home Lawyers

We formerly defended doctors & hospitals, now we only represent victims & their families in Maryland and Washington, DC. As former defense attorneys, we know how to fight for the rights of victims of medical negligence.

In medical malpractice and nursing home negligence cases, Stecco & Ward, P.C. levels the playing field for victims and their families. Medical providers invariably have a powerful legal team on their side. We are just as formidable because, not long ago, we were that powerful legal defense team.

Carlos G. Stecco and Roxanne L. Ward each spent more than a decade defending doctors, hospitals and other health care professionals. Now, we fight exclusively for victims and their families. We know most of the defense attorneys, how they think and the strategies they likely will pursue in attempting to defeat a claim. We put that knowledge to work to help our clients get answers and results.

We concentrate only on:

The caliber of medical malpractice representation clients expect

One of the most important factors in winning a medical negligence case is understanding the science and medicine involved. Our Baltimore medical malpractice lawyers have spent years working with medical experts, sifting through medical records and reading studies and journals, absorbing the scientific knowledge required to discover the truth.

The level of personal service victims and their families need

One reason we left medical malpractice defense work was the lack of a personal connection with our clients. We want to get to know people, understand the difficulties they face and get them help.

We earn our clients’ trust by being attentive to details, answering their questions and remaining at their side through the entire legal process. Clients meet directly with us, not a paralegal or an inexperienced associate attorney.

Integrity. Compassion. Results.

We understand how frustrating and heartbreaking a medical injury can be. Contact the Maryland medical malpractice attorneys at Stecco & Ward, P.C. for a free consultation. Together, we will find the answers.

Stecco & Ward, P.C. takes cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay no attorney fees unless we recover on your behalf.
