Attorney Profile

For more than 23 years, Attorney Scott Weidenfeller, Esq., has limited his practice solely (100%), to claims involving medical malpractice.  If you, your child or a loved one have suffered a catastrophic injury, paralysis, brain injury, amputation, blindness or a birth trauma or pediatric injury, then you need an effective, dedicated and skillful advocate.  In addition to being a 10 year Superlawyers recipient, Mr. Weidenfeller has been named to The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Litigators list for the State of Michigan.

The decision to contact an attorney about suing a physician or healthcare provider (many of whom are genuinely trying to help their patients) can be a difficult one. That's why Mr. Weidenfeller works hard to properly investigate each claim and to "get it right" from the start.  There is no cost to you, unless there is a recovery on your behalf and Mr. Weidenfeller has a strong positive record of Settlements, Trial Victories & Jury Verdicts - throughout the State of Michigan.
