Priscilla P. DeGois

Founding Partner

For over two decades, Ms. DeGois has zealously and successfully defended health care providers in diverse settings, including medical negligence actions, elder and dependent adult abuse claims, and professional licensing board investigations. Her broad experience includes averting lawsuits by executing effective pre-litigation strategies, prevailing on dispositive motions in both state and federal court, achieving defense verdicts at trial, and successfully advocating her clients’ interests on appeal.

Ms. DeGois recognizes client engagement and collaboration are essential to devising and executing successful defense strategies. In that regard, she prioritizes open, timely, and continuous communication with her clients. Throughout her career, this approach has unfailingly fostered strong client relationships founded on shared goals, mutual respect, and trust.

Recent jury trial victories include a 11-1 defense verdict involving a trauma surgeon in 2022 and a 12-0 defense verdict involving a urologist in 2019. Ms. DeGois’ appellate victories include successfully arguing the applicability of MICRA’s shortened statute of limitations period in a “slip and fall” case involving a surgery center.

In her free time, Ms. DeGois enjoys staying active and competing in the Industrial Volleyball League, perpetually working on a better golf swing, and cheering on her beloved NBA champs. Go DUBS!
