Shevlin Smith is a small, specialized law firm that restricts its practice to medical malpractice, and catastrophic injury and death cases. The present four-attorney firm has a rich history. The firm started in 1986 when Brian Shevlin founded Brian C. Shevlin & Associates, P.C., the predecessor firm to Shevlin Smith. Despite having successfully represented insurance companies in defending claims involving medical malpractice and automobile accidents for 12 years, Brian felt unfulfilled in his defense-based practice. He saw injured persons, who were deserving of compensation, lose their cases. He saw insurance companies make low-ball settlement offers to injured persons that were inexplicably accepted. To right these wrongs, Brian joined the ranks of plaintiffs’ lawyers under the belief that persons injured due to negligent and careless acts of others deserve compensation for their injuries -- not only fair compensation, but full compensation.
