As the chairperson for the Pennsylvania Association for Justice medical malpractice section, Attorney Richards has taken up various new responsibilities. She will now be leading quarterly meetings throughout the state. She will be planning educational opportunities for other medical malpractice attorneys to learn about current and controversial topics in medical malpractice law. And she will be providing a bi-monthly newsletter identifying legal issues that arise in medical malpractice litigation, as well as commentaries about the struggles that impact medical malpractice attorneys and victims.
Veronica Richards is a former Nurse Practitioner who also worked as a hospital administrator before becoming an attorney and focusing 100% of her practice on victims of medical malpractice. Mrs. Richards is special in that she has worked professionally in both the medical and law fields, meaning she knows what questions to ask and when to ask them. Richards has a long list of professional accolades, including being voted by her peers as one of the Top 50 Super Lawyers in Pittsburgh, one of the Top 50 female Super Lawyers in the state, and of the Top 100 Super Lawyers in all of Pennsylvania. She is a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum and has a perfect 10.0 AVVO rating.
Attorney Richards is very selective in the cases she chooses to take because of her unsurmountable belief in holding doctors, surgeons, and other medical professionals accountable for the people they treat.
