The Mahoney Law Firm, P.C. was established in 1990 and is guided by Doctor Dennis M. Mahoney. Dennis Mahoney is both a licensed attorney and a licensed physician, and has over thirty-four years of experience as a medical malpractice lawyer. As a partner with the firm of Johnson & Mahoney, Dr. Mahoney defended doctors and hospitals for twenty-two years.

He was joined in his law practice by his son Paul in 1993, and his son Kevin in 1995.
Medical malpractice simply put, is negligence in performing a professional act. Medical providers are required to exercise reasonable care in accordance with the standards of care for the profession involved. If a doctor, surgeon, hospital, or other medical provider acts, or fails to act, in a manner that deviates from the accepted standard of care, then that provider may be liable for money damages. What distinguishes the Mahoney Law Firm from other law firms is that we handle only medical malpractice cases. It is all we do, and we do it well. By specializing exclusively in this area, we are able to stay on top of trends in the law and provide our clients with the best possible legal representation.
The hardest part of any malpractice investigation is getting an expert opinion that supports the claim of professional negligence. It is virtually impossible to pursue a medical malpractice claim without an expert witness. As one might suspect, it is difficult for most firms to get an expert from the local medical community to testify against a colleague. That is where our experience makes a difference. Having practiced on both sides of counsel table, Dr. Dennis Mahoney has a keen insight into the politics, policies, and procedures of complicated medical malpractice cases. We do not need to leave the firm in order to get the opinion and insight of a doctor about the merits of your case: we have a licensed doctor in-house. In addition to his medical expertise, Dr. Mahoney's past experience on the defense side has also opened doors not always accessible to other firms. This includes our ability to retain in-state medical experts to evaluate claims and offer expert medical testimony when necessary. When Dr. Mahoney's experience and expertise is combined with the ambition and talents of Paul Mahoney and Kevin Mahoney, you have a formidable team that is well-equipped to level the playing field with the vast resources of medical providers and their defense team. If you have been injured by a medical provider, you need the Mahoney Law Firm, P.C.
