Professional Liability

A sign of a good law firm is that other lawyers hire the firm when they are in trouble. Mackenzie Hughes is a leader in successfully representing other lawyers — as well as physicians, accountants, engineers, clergy, architects and other professionals-in malpractice cases, as well as administrative, licensure and disciplinary proceedings. We have handled major litigation in each of these areas through trial and appeal, succeeding because of our experience and reputation for handling these difficult cases sensitively, confidentially and efficiently.
