About Us

Physicians hold a special place in society. They study for years, endure the rigors and expense of medical school, internships, residencies, and fellowships, and devote themselves to serve their patients’ health needs. Medical professionals are often targeted because of complications, poor outcomes, unrealistic expectations, or simply because they are viewed as having deep pockets. When they find themselves in unfamiliar territory before a medical board or a jury, they must turn to lawyers to represent them.

At Mitchell & Simopoulos, our mission is to achieve the best possible result for each client through effective and efficient advocacy. Our lawyers have represented hospitals and physicians in nearly every discipline. We are proud of our track record of success. We understand that the successful defense of a medical malpractice claim demands experience, intense preparation, intuition, skill and talent in the courtroom.



We represent healthcare providers, physician practice groups, and hospital systems throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and in Maryland and Washington, DC. We represent healthcare providers in medical malpractice and wrongful death lawsuits as well as investigations by the department of health professions.
