Mr. Forman’s first attorney position was with a national Plaintiff’s firm where he almost exclusively represented children who suffered catastrophic brain injury due to obstetrical or neonatal negligence. In 2008, Mr. Forman joined a boutique civil defense firm as a litigation associate where he represented doctors, nurses, hospitals and other healthcare professionals in defending claims of medical negligence.

While Mr. Forman’s time on the defense side proved educational, he quickly realized that his true passion was representing victims of malpractice. He joined Wais, Vogelstein, Forman & Offutt in 2009. Since that time, Mr. Forman has exclusively represented victims of medical malpractice and catastrophic injury.

As an attorney at Wais, Vogelstein, Forman & Offutt, Mr. Forman has been involved in numerous cases resulting in settlements or verdicts in excess of five million dollars. Mr. Forman’s practice today involves almost exclusively representing children who have suffered brain trauma or cerebral palsy as a result of obstetrical or neonatal negligence.
