high volume trial firms and handling a variety of cases including medical malpractice, wrongful
death, commercial and contractual disputes and personal injury, among other areas. When

She is tenacious and will work tirelessly as a neutral to bring the participants to a resolution so they can avoid the risks, stresses and costs associated with trial. With her background in medical malpractice and complex injury cases, Ms. Kaufman has a quick grasp of the causation issues that may effect liability and damages in matters involving personal injury, and can aid the participants in achieving creative solutions where needed.
