The attorneys at LANE & GLASSMAN are licensed in Florida and New York. Additionally, our attorneys are reviewing and accepting cases in other jurisdictions where the referring attorney is willing to sponsor our attorneys for admission pro hac vice to the local jurisdiction and serve as local counsel on the case.
LANE & GLASSMAN honors a 25% co-counsel fee on all referrals made by attorneys who hold an active license to practice law in any jurisdiction. Unfortunately, the professional rules of ethics do not permit us to pay referral fees to anyone other than actively licensed attorneys.
Dental Malpractice cases are a subset of medical malpractice. Most states have special rules and laws applicable to medical malpractice. In Florida, medical malpractice cases are guided by Florida Statute §766. While there are many firms that advertise a focus on medical malpractice, there are very few attorneys with the knowledge and understanding regarding the subtleties of dental malpractice claims. In fact, several of the largest medical malpractice firms in the state refer all their dental cases to LANE & GLASMAN.
No other firm in Florida, and the perhaps the United States, has both the legal and medical background to handle dental malpractice cases as efficiently or effectively as LANE & GLASSMAN. Not only is Dr. Stanley Lane an attorney with more than 20 years of legal experience, he is also licensed dentist and a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. As a medical professional, he was the head of the oral surgery department at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. In fact, for many years, Dr. Lane served as an expert witness in dozens of dental malpractice trials. Now as an attorney and advocate, Dr. Lane is the only board-certified oral surgeon-lawyer representing injured patients in the United States. Mark Glassman is a healthcare attorney with over 25 years of experience in medical malpractice litigation. Mr. Glassman spent a decade representing the same insurance companies that now insure the healthcare professionals being sued by LANE & GLASSMAN.
The bottom line is that the attorneys at LANE & GLASSMAN have the ability to interview potential clients and immediately differentiate between legitimate dental malpractice cases, and those matters which do not have all the elements of a viable claim.
