Ernie Teitell’s professional qualifications are clearly reflected by his experience of having practiced both criminal and civil law during his 35-year professional career. Some of the cases in which he has been involved are represented below.
What sets Ernie apart is the humanistic approach he takes with every single case. No one understands the devastating impact of life-altering events better than an attorney who spends many months, often years, dealing with a case.
Extended exposure to the ravages of medical malpractice, defective products, catastrophic vehicle collisions and most poignantly, sexual and spousal abuse, has made him a fierce advocate for those whose lives have been irretrievably altered.
This passion fuels his drive for excellence and his commitment to remaining compassionate and truly listening when dealing with the victims of traumatic, and often life-changing, events.
Ernie takes the greatest pride in his cases that have truly made a difference, like the family that established a foundation that has brought about significant changes in state regulations that mandate safer pools and equipment. He believes that a family like this teaches him what it really means to be a lawyer – to do work that brings positive change and makes the world a better and safer place.
