“Ty brings a significant track record in personal injury and medical malpractice litigation. A rising star in our field, he represents the next generation of this area of law, and we look forward to working with him,” explained Armand Leone, Jr., J.D., M.D., MBA, co-founder of Britcher Leone.

“I joined Britcher Leone because we share a key philosophy about our respective practices. What we do is truly about helping clients. In my experience, people who have been hurt or families that have lost a loved one due to physician negligence or an accident want to know what went wrong. They want answers, and they want to be sure this doesn’t happen to someone else,” noted Sergio.
