NCMIC is a writer of medical malpractice coverage in all 50 states.  We demand the highest level of service from our defense counsel.  Firms that don't meet our expectations are dismissed without hesitation.  Smith Sovik has been providing legal services to NCMIC since 1995.  They are aggressive in defending our cases and responsive to the needs of our insureds and my claims staff.  Kevin Hulslander and Jim Lantier are as good or better than any attorneys we have in the country.

As an academic psychiatrist there are numerous occasions during which challenging clinical cases appear...one such case, for me, resulted in a NYS Justice Center investigation in which I was alleged to have abused and/or neglected a patient due to the use of a behavioral contract...quite fortunately, my legal representation was adroitly provided by Kevin Hulslander a partner at the Smith Sovik firm. His knowledge and support were instrumental in my acquittal...this outcome is all the more astounding given the "low legal bar" the Justice Center must overcome...I am most fortunate, therefore, that my malpractice insurance carrier uses Mr. Hulslander's law firm.
