Using a Differential Diagnosis to Prove that Intrapartum Asphyxia is a Significant Cause of Cerebral Palsy

Dov Apfel is featured as one of "America's Premier Lawyers" in the February issue of Fortune Magazine. His interview will be broadcast worldwide during the month of February through Sky Radio on American Airlines and Northwest Airlines flights.

Apfel, a shareholder attorney at Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, P.A., is known nationally and locally among his peers as a child advocate. He represents clients and assists lawyers in obstetrical malpractice and cerebral palsy cases throughout the U.S.

Apfel has been selected by his peers as one of the "Best Lawyers in America" and was named as one of the top lawyers in his field in the Washington DC metropolitan area by Washingtonian Magazine. Apfel served as co-chair of the Birth Trauma Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and as chair of the Maryland Trial Lawyer's Medical Negligence Group.

In addition to his litigation practice, Apfel routinely lectures at national conferences and publishes extensively on legal and medical issues arising in Cerebral Palsy (CP) litigation. His landmark law review article, "Using a Differential Diagnosis to Prove that Intrapartum Asphyxia is a Significant Cause of Cerebral Palsy," features a comprehensive critique and overview of the litigation criteria and "junk science" used by the obstetrical community to support its claims that CP rarely occurs during labor and delivery and cannot be prevented.
