Clients rely on our size and resources, which let us see their malpractice cases through to conclusion. In some instances, we are able to offer contingent fees, effectively financing the legal fees associated with a case.

All these resources do not come at the expense of personal contacts or relationships. Our clients know that when they call, they will be able to speak directly with the lawyer working on their case.


Gentry Locke’s Medical Malpractice Group represents individuals and families of those harmed by the negligence of health care providers such as physicians, nurses, therapists, dentists, nursing homes, clinics and hospitals. These highly specialized claims are vigorously contested by health care providers and their insurers, and require attorneys who can properly evaluate and prosecute valid claims.
