Bill Haltom and Maggie Cooper Lead Trial Team to Another Jury Verdict for Lewis Thomason

Another jury trial and another win for LT!

The defense team of Bill Haltom and Maggie Cooper capped off a two week-long jury trial with a verdict for their client, the defendant physician, in a healthcare liability case.

The win continued an undefeated streak for LT healthcare lawyers dating back over two years.

While the Haltom/Cooper Team did the work in the courtroom, they were ably assisted back in the office by Laura Deakins, Jimmy Duckworth, Natalie Bursi, and a sedulous, efficient staff.

We congratulate the entire team on a hard-fought victory.
