Misdiagnosis of Cancer

Southern California Cancer Misdiagnosis Medical Malpractice Attorneys

“When my husband was diagnosed with late stage cancer, we felt that his doctors had not been properly monitoring his health status.  My husband, who was also a prominent attorney, personally approached Tom to represent our family in a malpractice suit.  Tom litigated two successful cases for us; a malpractice case before my husband’s death, and a wrongful death case after he died.

During this entire process, we were always impressed by the way we were treated by the entire firm.  Everyone we dealt with was responsive, sensitive, and caring, and we felt they became our friends and allies through a very difficult experience.  I truly believe that Donahue and Horrow succeeded in securing the best possible outcome for our family.  I would highly recommend their services to anyone.”
