What Makes Our Firm Stand Out?

  • More than 25 years of experience in the health care industry. Before starting Bertram Law Group, PLLC in 2018, attorney Catherine D. Bertram was the Director of Risk Management at Georgetown Hospital, where she worked to prevent patient harm and also analyzed medical malpractice claims. She worked side by side with doctors and nurses to try to improve patient safety programs. Attorney Heather J. Kelly also has more than two decades of experience as a trial lawyer defending medical providers before joining Bertram Law Group. Our extensive experience gives our legal team a 360-degree perspective on our clients’ medical malpractice cases. We know how the defense analyzes and fights these cases. And we know what it takes to win.
  • Expert network of medical professionals. Because we have worked in the health care industry for so long, we have built a strong network of medical specialists who can investigate your case and are willing to testify if your claim has merit. Our in-house team also includes a former critical care/flight nurse, Anne D. Pile, RN, who is also involved in every case from the first intake through trial. We bring our nurse to trial to help you every step of the way.
  • Exclusive focus on medical malpractice cases. We are a boutique firm that almost exclusively handles cases involving medical errors, unsafe devices and medical negligence. These cases are extremely complex and require specific skills and resources. Our team has the experience and the focus to aggressively advocate for patients and families who have been unjustly harmed.
  • Commitment to getting answers. No matter what happens with your case, you deserve answers and acknowledgement of what has been done to you and your family. We understand this. Our seasoned medical malpractice attorneys know what questions to ask, whom to talk to, and what your rights are under the law. We will fight fiercely for the answers and the justice you deserve.
