Michael Prangle has more than 20 years of litigation experience where he focuses on medical malpractice defense. Over his career, Mike has tried more than 50 medical malpractice cases to verdict. His practice is varied and includes representation of doctors, nurses, and hospitals. Recently his practice has expanded to include the defense of other professionals, including accountants, product manufacturers, long-term care facilities and trucking companies.
His philosophy is to aggressively defend cases, using the law as a sword instead of a shield. As a result, he has been extremely successful in having cases dismissed or claims pared down, reducing case value and exposure to his client.
Additionally, he has significant appellate experience, having briefed and argued appeals before the First District Court of Appeals, the Illinois Supreme Court and the Nevada Supreme Court.
Mike was previously a partner in the medical litigation department at Lord, Bissell & Brook, LLP.
As a member of the catastrophic trial team Michael E. Prangle is available to practice in all of our offices and across the country, on a case by case basis.
