Stephen Palmer

Litigation Analyst

Stephen works exclusively with Jeff Mitchell. He is responsible for new client intake, preliminary case analysis, insurance carrier contact, preparation of initial claim presentation to the carriers/defendants and then continuing analysis of all components of the claim, including insurance coverage issues and ensuing litigation. Stephen attends client meetings and when necessary, party depositions, mediations and trials. Stephen spent 22 years in supervisorial and managerial positions at the Medical Insurance Exchange of California (a physician owned professional liability carrier) and provides a unique perspective and understanding of the insurer/defense counsel approach to medical malpractice claims handling. His focus is on creating a collaborative relationship with the carriers and defense counsel, which serves to accelerate the resolution process and maximize each settlement. Stephen is an avid golfer, wine aficionado and is happiest when he and his Show Champion Gordon Setter are out on long walks.

"In over 25 years of practice on the defense side of malpractice cases, Jeff Mitchell is the attorney I fear most. He takes very good cases. Jeff has the medicine and the applicable literature down cold. He is without a doubt the best cross-examiner I have ever seen. I have paid his clients a lot of money over the years."
