About Us

Whether you are a health care professional, hospital, medical group or manage medical malpractice insurance claims, it is important to have a trusted defense firm to turn to in the event of a medical malpractice claim, suit or licensing board proceeding. For numerous clients and carriers throughout Northern and Central California, members of Donnelly Nelson Depolo Murray & Efremsky have been there for more than four decades — a trusted source of defense representation and sound legal advice.

We are defense attorneys, committed to protecting the interests of insureds and their professional liability carriers. Our versatile practice is equipped to address the needs of a broad range of medical professionals and institutions.

A key component of our approach is to seek early dismissal of cases whenever possible. Our proactive, aggressive course of action has helped us get numerous cases dismissed before they become costly and time-consuming for the insureds and carriers.

Our defense team includes lawyers with decades of trial experience who are also skilled negotiators and mediators. Our diverse and experienced roster of attorneys allows us to tailor an approach to suit the requirements of each case.

Our lawyers have tried to jury verdict hundreds of trials. Four of our attorneys have met the qualifying trial standards and been elected to membership in the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).

We make one promise to our clients: We are absolutely dedicated to doing our best. We have a passion for success and a commitment to providing exceptional representation.
