Risk Factors for Stroke During Labor and Delivery

  • Beam Legal Team, LLC Our daughter, Marissa deserved the same care and treatment as any other child but when that didn't happen and the hospital where she was delivered went into legal mode, all our questions went unanswered. "What happened?" we asked, only to receive a response of "Not all babies are born pink and rosy". BS... Thanks to Jack Beam and Matt Patterson, we finally got answers and held the people responsible accountable. We wanted the truth, "No stone left unturned." was our motto during trial and they did exactly that! I can never thank them enough for what they did for our daughter and for us, giving us peace of mind in knowing Marissa will be taken care of for the rest of her life. God Bless you.
