If you or a loved one were injured due to a defective medical device, the first thing you must do is preserve the device in question. Often times a device is identified as malfunctioning for some reason, and surgery is immediately scheduled to either rectify the issue or to replace the faulty device. When that happens, medical providers will observe the device, make a note in the surgical report, and then discard the device. When that happens, it can be fatally detrimental to your potential claim against the manufacturer of the device for having a defective device. As such, it is crucial to determine where the device in question is located and to preserve it at all costs.

I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
★★★★★
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
