D&M came together in the latter part of 2005 and had its first full calendar year in 2006. D&M was created to combine the talents of two highly successful individual trial lawyers into one firm. Most firms that focus on medical negligence have one trial attorney supported by the rest of the firm. By combining the talents of two successful trial attorneys, D&M found that their efforts can serve more clients and serve their clients more efficiently by sharing information, resources, and talents. D&M's clients have the luxury of knowing they have at least two individual trial lawyers familiar with their case and capable of trying the case. This allows more flexibility in moving the case forward quickly and obtaining a favorable result.
