Not every bad outcome or unsatisfactory experience is malpractice. It takes experience
with both medicine and the law to sort out which criticisms are actionable and which
are not. That’s why choosing an attorney with both medical and legal experience
is a very good idea.
The practice of law is not Rebekah Ryan Main’s first profession. She began her professional
life in 1987 as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) – D, gaining both medical knowledge
and patient care experience in diverse and interesting settings.
Her passion for medicine, and the “art” of emergency patient care, led her to a teaching
position as an EMT skills instructor at a private college in 1995. This position
afforded Rebekah the opportunity to continue learning, as well as to teach. Her desire
to increase both her skills and her education resulted in additional training in
defibrillation and, ultimately, a phlebotomy certification. Ten years of patient
care, medical training and experience made a legal focus on medical malpractice a
natural choice. Years of medical malpractice litigation experience makes Rebekah
Ryan Main an excellent choice for your malpractice claim.
