Patrick Thronson proudly advocates for children and adults who have suffered catastrophic injuries because of preventable medical errors. He has been a member of litigation teams that have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for injured victims. The majority of his clients are children with cerebral palsy, a devastating, life-altering neurological disorder that is all too often the result of carelessness by health care providers.

He is admitted to practice in Maryland and Illinois and is co-editor of Trial Reporter, the premier publication of the Maryland Association for Justice.
