Stereotypes based on gender affect the kind of medical treatment women with heart disease receive.

Medical malpractice cases based on failure to diagnose or treat a heart attack, particularly those involving women, are legally and medically challenging.

“I was only 18 when my son Lucas was born and didn’t realize his slow development was due to an injury during birth. When I met Judy Massong, I was young, naïve, and destitute. She was compassionate, cared a lot about Lucas, and alleviated my fears about going to trial. Her knowledge of medical terminology was incredibly helpful and contributed to the verdict against the hospital. I am still caring for my son, who requires 24-hour care, and this would not have been possible without Judy’s representation. She is awesome.” Cheryl Marshall
