Overview

As the senior member of the firm’s Medical Malpractice Practice Group, Richard Galperin has devoted almost the entirety of his career to medical malpractice and medical negligence cases. Over the course of more than four decades as a practicing trial lawyer, Rich has tried more than 130 cases to jury verdict, almost all of them multi-day medical negligence cases. Rich is one of the most experienced medical malpractice attorneys practicing in Delaware. 

After having devoted the majority of his career to defending individuals and institutions in medical malpractice claims involving all medical specialties, he now represents individuals who have experienced injuries due to medical negligence. 

“Actually trying civil cases before a jury is becoming a rare event. Trying multiple cases before a jury is even less frequent. For a trial attorney, there is no substitute for experience.”
