Sarasota/Bradenton & Orlando Attorneys for Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice and Workers’ Compensation

Attorneys Marjorie Chalfant, R.N., J.D., and Steven M. Meyers, Esq., are the lead attorneys at the offices of The Nurse Attorney, P.A. in Sarasota/Bradenton and Orlando. Together, Marjorie and Steve have spent over fifty years in courtrooms representing injured victims and their families. They have been lead counsel in jury trials involving brain damage, quadriplegia, misdiagnosis and death. Marjorie and Steve have tried multiple medical malpractice cases to verdict, along with auto accident, premises liability and other serious injury cases, and have obtained many multi-million dollar settlements and recoveries for their clients. Let our lawyers put their years of experience, knowledge and dedication to work for you, and help you get the compensation you need and deserve when you have been injured because of another’s negligence or incompetence.

Whether you have been injured from malpractice, at work, on the road, or in public, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages suffered, including medical bills and lost income.

Unfortunately, healthcare providers, employers, negligent parties and their insurance companies hire aggressive adjusters and lawyers to try to pay as little as possible on your claim – or to deny any responsibility at all – if they can. Although you may be the injured victim, but the “burden of proof” will fall on you to prove that the other party is responsible for your injury and should compensate you for your harms and losses. Standing up to the insurance company defense lawyers and proving your case requires knowledge of the law, and medicine as well as a thorough understanding of your immediate and long-term medical needs, in order to be fully compensated.

What most lawyers DON’T know, a Nurse-Attorney DOES!

For over a decade, Marjorie Chalfant worked as a Critical Care Registered Nurse in central Florida hospitals and nursing homes. As she transitioned to a career in law, Marjorie combined her nursing knowledge and skills with her law practice.  Her combined experience in nursing and law makes her exceptional in handling medical malpractice and personal injury cases

At The Nurse Attorney, P.A., we know the law – and we know the medicine! Our team is able to quickly evaluate your claim and let you know the strengths or weaknesses of your case. We understand the medical aspects of severe injury and death claims, and we are well-versed in how proper medical care should be provided. From a review of your medical records we are often able to discover what was going on “behind the scenes” in your medical records, including important information that may have been left out of the official record.

With our medical training combined with our legal training, we are able to communicate directly with medical professionals and your care providers, and communicate effectively with insurance companies and juries, without having to be educated by hiring nurses to evaluate medical records for us. This cuts time and costs out of your case that other attorneys may require, and enables us to provide top quality representation to maximize your recovery. Read about The Nurse Attorney Advantage for more of the many ways having a Nurse-Attorney on your case can improve your outcome.

Help is Available for Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice and Workplace Injury Claims throughout Florida

Call us at our offices in the Sarasota/Bradenton area or in Orlando to schedule a free consultation regarding your case. We represent clients throughout the State of Florida and beyond, and in fact, we are also hired by lawyers in other states throughout the U.S. to help them with their out-of-state injury cases. We handle all medical malpractice, personal injury and workers’ compensation cases on a contingency basis, meaning we do not charge a fee unless and until we obtain a financial recovery for you. Our fee is a percentage of the amount we recover for you, so you can rest assured that our fees are affordable, and that your attorneys are working as hard as they can to get the maximum amount of compensation for you.

What Can The Nurse
Attorney Law Firm
Do For Me?

Because Marjorie has special expertise in the medical field, she is able to communicate with physicians, nurses and patients. Nursing practice requires the ability to explain complex medical conditions to patients who do not have knowledge of their own situation. A Registered Nurse is often the “interpreter,” and the “liaison” between the doctor and the patient. This skill also works in trial, when jurors without medical knowledge need to understand complicated medical conditions in order to render a verdict in favor of the injured person.

    I'm so pleased to have Marjorie as my lawyer for my Medical Malpractice case! Right from the start she was so knowledgeable with her nursing background in reviewing my husband's medical records. She is definitely dedicated to her pursuit of getting to the TRUTH with your case no matter what obstacles are thrown in her path. I would highly recommend Marjorie if you feel you have a Medical Malpractice case. Plus, you'll find her exceptionally nice and easy to talk to!!

  • 5 Stars I would recommend her to anyone needing a good, dedicated attorney

    I would recommend Marjorie to anyone needing a good, dedicated attorney. The fact that she is also a nurse overwhelms me. She has to earn CEUs in order to keep her license current. This is a woman who is dedicated to what she does. She won't take a case she doesn't think she can win.

  • 5 Stars Highly recommend Lawyer especially in the field of medical malpractice. / Skilled in medical documentation.

    My experience with Ms. Marjorie Chalfant in reference to our medical malpractice case is phenomenal, a very complex and highly challenging case that was turned down by several lawyers from the start. Nobody wants to handle/accept this case since it requires a lot of resources and extensive studying, some says its an uphill climb.
