As the fourth-year medical students at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences prepare for their future, they have to learn more than just medicine. Attorney Michelle Ator spoke to these students about the business side of the profession earlier in the week as part of their ongoing education. Her presentation, "The Business of Medicine," focused on ways doctors can minimize their risk of being involved in future litigation. One piece of advice: "Stay focused, current and compassionate.”
Michelle is a partner in the firm and heads up the Medical Malpractice group. Her practice focuses on representing doctors, hospitals and all types of medical providers in litigation. She was named 2017 Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers in the area of medical malpractice defense and rated by Super Lawyers as one of the Tope 50 Lawyers in Arkansas and Top 50 Women Lawyers of the Mid-South.
