How We Help: Our Practice Areas

At Hoffer & Sheremet we represent our clients in all phases of litigation and appeals. We also strive to prevent litigation, when circumstances warrant, through early dispute resolution. When there is opportunity to alleviate the stress that potential litigation may place on you and your family, we make every effort to do so.

We litigate a variety of types of cases, but primarily focus on mistakes made by doctors, hospitals, other healthcare providers, and lawyers.  If you suffered an injury, were the victim of medical malpractice or legal malpractice, or have a case going to appeal, we can help.  Click on the titles below to learn more.  If you aren’t sure whether your case falls within any of these practice areas, please call us to find out.  

We are passionate about our role in correcting judicial errors and developing the law. When the law doesn’t work, we work to change the law. We offer a comprehensive range of appellate, research and writing services, ranging from providing legal opinions and writing assistance to trial counsel before appellate proceedings begin, all the way to bringing a case to the Supreme Court.  We have an excellent appellate success rate.

As birth trauma lawyers, we help families receive compensation when an injury  to a baby or mother is caused by hospital or doctor malpractice.  We have in depth knowledge of both the law and the medicine, including common birth injuries such as cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, and brain injury caused by hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy.  Birth injury lawsuits are different than other types of litigation.  Our team of professionals sets your child’s care up into the future.

Do you believe your attorney made a fatal mistake in representing you? Even attorneys make mistakes. When an attorney misses a deadline, doesn’t identify the right witness, settles a case without your consent, or doesn’t draft documents properly, you might have a claim against your attorney.  We hold attorneys accountable for their mistakes in legal malpractice cases.

Have you or your loved suffered an injury due to hospital, physician, or other healthcare professional negligence?  We have unique insight into these types of claims because we spent years defending them. We have the knowledge and experience to help you resolve your claim.  We are Grand Rapids-based medical malpractice attorneys, serving victims throughout Michigan and select clients nationally.

Injured women face unique challenges in litigation. In cases involving female-specific issues such as breast surgeries, obstetrical and gynecological procedures, female clients may be more comfortable sharing the details of their healthcare and the impact on their daily lives with another woman. We are one of only two female owned medical and legal malpractice firms in West Michigan. We understand.  We can help.
