Grand Rapids Medical and Legal Malpractice Attorneys
Hoffer & Sheremet is headquartered in Grand Rapids. Our office is a short walk to the Kent County Courthouse where most medical and legal malpractice cases are filed. Having clerked for several 17th Circuit Court Judges, and practicing here regularly, we know the procedural preferences of each judge.
Kent County has a reputation for having conservative juries (i.e., juries that do not fully compensate victims). We think that is changing. We recently had a jury that generously awarded our medical malpractice client compensation for the non-economic damages she suffered.
Legal malpractice cases are handled a bit differently in Kent County than in some others. All legal malpractice cases are heard in the business court. Medical malpractice cases are not heard in business court, but rather, are on the general civil docket.
