Firm Overview

I established my firm in 1993, after having gained over 12 years of experience litigating on behalf of catastrophically injured clients at two major Philadelphia law firms. Stephen Ulan joined my firm soon after it was established, and Dr. Gerald Kaplan, a general surgeon who also has a law degree, became of counsel to the firm. Together we carefully evaluate, work up and litigate cases on behalf of our clients. While providing aggressive representation, we provide compassion and care to our clients along the way. We provide high-quality representation from AV-rated lawyers, with personalized attention in a small firm atmosphere.

We are a high quality firm that represents catastrophically injured individuals in their medical malpractice and personal injury cases. We have successfully represented
clients in birth injury cases, obstetrical negligence cases, delay in diagnosis cases, cases of surgical error, medication overdose, misread x-rays, and all aspects of hospital, doctor, and nursing negligence, achieving significant results. We have been very successful in handling serious injury cases for our clients.

Example cases

I handled a birth injury case in which there was an excessive use of pitocin and a delay in performing a cesarean section in the face of fetal distress, which resulted in a multi-million dollar result. I have handled birth trauma cases involving the misuse of vacuum and forceps, cases involving the failure to diagnose pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes, shoulder dystocia cases, and cases of pediatric malpractice.

I have represented women in failure to diagnose breast and ovarian cancer, and surgical error cases. I have achieved successful results in all types of medical negligence cases in my 34 years of practice.

I have also successfully handled cases involving delays in ambulance response, serious auto accidents, slip and falls, and product liability cases. I have represented men, women and children with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and burn injuries.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

By representing seriously injured individuals who are the victims of negligence, my legal skills are being used to help people who are in disadvantaged circumstances.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I encourage clients to learn as much as they can about the legal process.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

In personal injury litigation, there is little need for clients to prepare legal documents. However, clients are encouraged to keep diaries of their medical treatment and pain levels.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Unfortunately, this is not something which is advised in a serious injury case.

Judy Greenwood

I started my career as a public interest lawyer handling civil rights act cases, and then switched to the private sector where I worked and became a partner at the catastrophic injury firm of Bernstein, Bernstein, & Harrison, where I litigated medical malpractice, product liability, auto accident, and slip and fall cases. I then became a partner with the law firm of Kolsby Gordon concentrating on medical malpractice cases.

My experience representing mothers with handicapped children and people who have themselves suffered life-altering injuries has given me the understanding and compassion necessary to effectively fight for my clients' interests.

We are experienced lawyers who provide high-quality representation. We aggressively represent your interests in an atmosphere that feels like a family firm.
