Biography

Robert Painter is a medical malpractice attorney. As a former hospital administrator, he focuses on getting justice for patients and family members who’ve experienced life-changing injuries or wrongful death because of medical malpractice. Robert has always been interested in health care. He started his graduate education in medical school and was awarded a full scholarship from the U.S. Army. Midway through medical school, he worried about the direction of health care in America and decided that he could have a more positive impact for patient safety in health law.Before enrolling at Baylor Law School, though, it was time to repay the U.S. Army. He served two years on active duty as an officer in the U.S. Army. His main assignment was as a hospital administrator at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Robert excelled at Baylor and was elected to law review and as moot court president. He began his legal career at the prestigious law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski. In his six years there, he worked in the health litigation group, defending hospitals and health care providers. In 2006, he devoted his practice to plaintiffs’ medical malpractice lawsuits at Painter Law Firm. He handles all kinds of medical negligence matters, including birth injury, brain injury, anesthesia error, surgical error, hospital error, failure to diagnose, and delayed diagnosis cases.Many clients and other attorneys pick Robert because of his unique experience in medical school, as a hospital administrator, and defending hospitals and doctors. On top of that, there’s his proven track record of recoveries for his clients.
