Pharmaceutical companies, at their best, exemplify the benefits of free market capitalism. Driven by powerful financial incentives, they seek to create drugs that improve, extend, and even save millions of lives. There are many cases in which they have succeeded in this mission, and we commend them for it.
Unfortunately, there are also profound systemic flaws in the way drugs are developed. The same profit motive that drives pharmaceutical companies to great heights of innovation also prompts them to cut corners. Spending on marketing and advertising dwarfs spending on safety research. In an alarming number of cases, drugs have been rushed to market. Corporations are often overzealous in the promotion of drugs and in convincing physicians to prescribe. They are reluctant to warn the public about potential side effects and slow to recall products when problems emerge.
When real people like you are harmed by this type of corner-cutting, it is an outrage. It's bad enough to suffer harmful effects from the negligence of another person or entity. We handle many such cases, and they are often tragic and heart breaking. However, actions by large corporations that put profit ahead of public safety harm or even kill innocent individuals; this is a violation of common human decency.
If, after a free consultation, we determine that you have been the victim of such a violation, we will pursue your case with purpose and passion. We will GO TO WAR for you.

In the absence of adequate government regulation, effective legal action plays a crucial role in reducing the incentive to cut corners. Never let it be said that these cases are a burden on the free market. Far from it. Holding violators accountable restores vital balance to the system. It helps the free market to work the way it was intended to work: IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST.
