Representative government and trial by jury are the heart and lungs of liberty. Without them we have no other fortification against being ridden like horses, fleeced like sheep, worked like cattle and fed and clothed like swine and hounds.
-John Adams (1774)

It’s just another day…driving to work or shopping or maybe to visit family…and then it happens in a split second…you never saw it coming…and another driver crashes into you.

“First Do No Harm” is taken from the Hippocratic Oath. Most doctors, nurses, and hospitals are good people, dedicated to helping patients. However, even the best medical personnel can make a mistake.

Many hours of both medical and legal research are necessary to put together a successful Medical Malpractice case. Mr. Hashem has reviewed hundreds of medical malpractice claims in his 30 plus years. If you have suffered serious injury as the result of medical malpractice, let The Hashem Law Firm put its experience to work for you.
From Hani “Hannibal” Hashem
Luck never seems to come to me at 4pm on the golf course. Luck usually seems to hit me at midnight in the library.
Lawyering is hard work. Every case requires research, study, preparation, and practice. Our moto is that the bigger law firms may outnumber us…but they won’t out hustle us. At The Hashem Law Firm, we strive to give our clients the best legal services available…that’s whether our client is a multi-national manufacturing company, the largest agricultural supplier in the country, a Bank, an Insurance Company…or simply a neighbor with a legal problem. Every case we handle is not a case of major legal significance…but we know that every case we handle is the most important case in the world to that client…and we treat each case that way.
At The Hashem Law Firm, you are more than just a file number. Many of our clients become Friends…and we like it that way. I have even represented four (4) generations of the same family…now that’s loyalty! I often laugh with clients…and cry with clients. Your successes are our successes…your failures are our failures.
I have been a lawyer for a long time…going on 35 years. I have been blessed beyond what I deserve. I have tried jury cases of Wrongful Death, Defective Products, Medical Malpractice, Business Fraud, Toxic Exposure, Trucking Accidents, Brain Damage, Lost Limbs, Herniated Discs, Broken Bones, and Broken Hearts…and I have defended Banks in major Lender Liability cases and been Lead Defense Counsel in the largest migrant farm worker Class Action, west of the Mississippi River. I have represented other Lawyers, Trial Court Judges, and an Appellate Court Judge…it is gratifying when your colleagues place their trust in you. I have handled client’s cases in Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, New Mexico, California, Maine, and the United States Supreme Court.
When you have a legal problem, let us put our experience to work for you.
