It Shows

Experienced Texas Medical Malpractice Attorneys

WE CARE AND IT SHOWS.  It is an honor and privilege to represent our clients in seeking justice.  Justice to us means making sure that grossly negligent hospitals, clinics, doctors and nurses take responsibility for their medical malpractice. It is important to Thomas & Wan that through a lawsuit, our clients are fairly compensated with money for their losses and that grossly negligent hospitals and doctors change their policies, training and practice so that no one else has to suffer injury or death from the same malpractice.

We believe juries are the backbone of preserving the rights of citizens. The courtroom is one of the few places an injured person can be on equal footing with a large hospital corporation.  Whether your claim can be resolved without a lawsuit or requires a fight all the way through trial, we are ready to stand with you.  Every client deserves quality legal representation and a fair chance in the courtroom.
