Who We Are

With 50 years of combined experience aggressively litigating cases, Washington D.C. medical malpractice attorneys Catherine Bertram and Laurie Amell are widely recognized in the community for their impressive and consistent case results. Bertram & Amell is the only medical malpractice law firm in Washington, D.C. that is headed by two women. Furthermore, the attorneys of Bertram & Amell are able to offer clients with a unique perspective into their cases concerning medical negligence. By combining the experience of an former in-house medical practice attorney who is well versed in risk management with the insightful knowhow of a former critical care nurse turned client-focused attorney, Bertram & Amell provides a unique and informed viewpoint on client matters.

Firsthand Knowledge and Experience Makes A Difference

Effective legal representation should be familiar with the relevant area of law for a client’s case, but lawyers with firsthand knowledge about the relevant technical areas pertinent to a client’s case are best equipped to bring that case to a successful resolution. The lawyers at Bertram & Amell are familiar with the ins-and-outs of hospital practices and risk management, and are all too aware of how frequently highly trained medical professionals can make mistakes that can leave patients with serious injuries.

Prior to starting her own firm, Ms. Bertram worked in-house at Georgetown University Hospital in the patient safety program. Ms. Bertram knows firsthand the importance of hospital safety and managing the often avoidable risks that can accompany providing medical care. As a registered nurse, Ms. Amell personally knows how often preventable medical errors can lead to devastating consequences for patients and their families. A true patient advocate, Ms. Amell sought to further her pursuit of justice by using her nursing background to help families who have been adversely affected by instances of medical malpractice.

We can also help you seek the justice that you deserve for your medical injuries. Although we have litigated major Washington D.C medical malpractice cases, we are a small firm at heart.

Patients Are The Most Vulnerable Victims

When patients seek medical care, they are putting their well-being, and sometimes even their lives, into the hands of trusted medical professionals. But when care providers act negligently or violate trust of these patients, it can leave injured patients feeling victimized, vulnerable and helpless. One mistake at the hands of a medical professional can change a patient’s life forever. No victim of a medical injury should be left to deal with their injuries alone. The lawyers at Bertram & Amell are the skilled and experienced medical malpractice lawyers you want in your corner when you are dealing with a medical injury.
