Augusta, GA (Vocus) September 14, 2010
Hull Barrett, PC is pleased to announce that James V. Painter has been named Co-Chair of the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Medical Professional Practices Subcommittee.
The ABA’s Health Law Litigation Committee, which is comprised of over 800 health care litigators, strives to be the premier resource to become informed, engaged and included in discussion and debate regarding current and emerging issues and trends in health care litigation. The Health Law Litigation Committee is divided into subcommittees that are designed to address in further detail topics and developments in areas specific to each member’s practice. Mr. Painter was selected to co-chair the subcommittee on medical professional practice for his experience and depth of knowledge in medical malpractice defense. Erik H. Olson, of The Olson Law Firm in Atlanta, Georgia, will also serve as co-chair for the subcommittee. Together, Mr. Painter and Mr. Olson hope to create resources and an open environment where members can discuss, learn and further educate each other on issues relating to medical professional practices.
Mr. Painter graduated from The University of Georgia School of Law in 1994 and is admitted to practice in Georgia, South Carolina and New York. Chairman of Hull Barrett’s litigation department and team leader of the firm’s medical negligence practice group, Mr. Painter’s practice focuses on representing hospitals, physicians, nursing homes and other health care providers throughout Georgia and South Carolina. From pre-suit investigation through final judgment, Mr. Painter has obtained numerous medical malpractice defense verdicts in State and Federal Courts. He also handles comprehensive general insurance defense, including suits involving allegations of premises liability, product liability, defamation, breach of contract, worker’s compensation, and automobile and trucking liability. Mr. Painter is a diplomate in medical professional liability with the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys (ABPLA) and has been recognized by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® in the field of medical malpractice law (Copyright 2010 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.) for the past three years.
