Dimar’s practice focuses solely on defending health care providers, including physicians, nurses, dentists, physical therapists, nursing homes and other long-term care providers, as well as pharmacies.

Seibold focuses his practice in the areas of employment law, product liability, construction, premises liability, transportation, arson-fraud litigation, and insurance coverage.
