Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd announced that Sally Purnell was recently recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2021 “Lawyer of the Year” for Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants in Greenville.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.” Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.
In addition to the “Lawyer of the Year” award, Sally was listed in the 2021 edition of The Best Lawyers in America in two additional practice areas: Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants and Professional Malpractice Law – Defendants.
Sally represents hospitals, physicians and other healthcare providers in a wide range of legal matters. She has over 30 years of experience defending and litigating medical malpractice claims and advising on matters of risk management, informed consent, patient confidentiality and peer review.
