Summary

Law Firm Overview

Robert D. Ahlstrom, a Maryland trial attorney, has since 1974 successfully represented individuals and their families who have sustained injury due to the negligence of others. In 1997, he obtained a very favorable outcome for a family who lost their elderly parent due to the negligent care provided by an assisted living facility. With that claim as a springboard, Mr. Ahlstrom has since then focused his law practice obtaining compensation for the victims of negligent and abusive treatment in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other health care settings. Mr. Ahlstrom, with years of experience in representing the victims of such maltreatment, is recognized in the legal and health care communities as an attorney who provides highly effective representation and who understands the unique issues presented in these types of claims.

If you believe that you, or a family member, have been the victim of nursing home or other healthcare malpractice, please contact us to schedule a free consultation with Mr. Ahlstrom and his on-staff nurse paralegal.
