Open Positions at
Goodell DeVries

Medical Malpractice Defense Associate

Many law-firm Litigation Associates do all the right things but miss out on the career experiences that they envision and deserve: appearing in court for trials and hearings, writing important motions, taking and defending depositions, interacting regularly with clients and experts. They also want clients whose core mission goes beyond being profitable but makes a real difference in people’s lives. But they don’t want to pursue those personal goals at the cost of not working with a diverse array of top-tier attorneys to teach and mentor them. And is it too much to ask that the partners, associates, and staff be really nice, decent, reasonable people who truly appreciate you? And is there healthcare and free parking by the Inner Harbor? Does such a job even exist? It does.

Goodell, DeVries, Leech & Dann in Baltimore has been defending the region’s hospitals and healthcare heroes for decades in many of their most important civil litigation matters. It is the only firm with a Tier 1 rating in Chambers USA for Maryland Medical Malpractice Defense. The work is challenging and important. It requires a passion for healthcare in all its parts: the medicine, the care providers, and the patients. It also requires a passion for the core components of private civil litigation: trial work, legal research and substantive brief-writing, discovery, depositions, expert witnesses. If this is exactly what you wanted your litigation career to be and you find yourself getting something less than that, don’t settle any longer. Join us.
