Jed Kurzban wanted to be a lawyer since – when he was 12 or 13 – he first watched his father argue before a jury on a client’s behalf. The client was an ironworker whose foot had been crushed when a crane ball dropped from fifty feet. Jed’s father told the jury not to agree to the “pennies” that were being offered as a settlement, and he tossed a fistful of pennies in the air.
“The judge yelled at my father,” Jed Kurzban recalls. “I was hooked and wanted to be a trial attorney.” Jed explains that his father mentored him in law school and let him clerk for the firm. When Jed first joined with the firm, he handled a wide variety of cases, and it wasn’t long until he took on his initial medical malpractice case.
Jed Kurzban says he “fell in love” with the learning it takes to be an effective advocate for the victims of medical malpractice. Again, Jed credits his dad. “My father allowed me to find my own way and my own love for the law.” Today, Jed Kurzban’s practice is committed to representing the victims of wrongful death and medical malpractice.
PUTTING LIVES BACK TOGETHER
What is the most rewarding part of being a medical malpractice attorney? Jed Kurzban answers without hesitation, “My clients.” He explains that the victims of medical malpractice usually exhaust their families’ resources quickly, receive no government assistance of any kind, and often have to fight insurance companies despite being injured and legally entitled to compensation.
Often, medical malpractice victims may feel like their lives have been destroyed. They can face severe financial hardships. Jed Kurzban works hard to provide them with help and hope – as well as compensation and justice. He is dedicated to helping medical malpractice victims put their lives back together and helping them move positively and constructively into the future.
Speaking of the future, how does Jed Kurzban see it? He understands that changes to the law – and to social policy – happen slowly, so that any single case has the potential, in time, to become a landmark case. He enjoys being “part of the front line” in the ever-changing world of medical malpractice law.
“DOING SOMETHING VALUABLE IN THE WORLD”
When he’s not advocating on behalf of the victims of medical malpractice, Jed Kurzban is probably rooting for one of Miami’s sports teams. Jed was born and raised in Miami – he even earned his J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law – so he’s enjoyed watching the Dolphins and Hurricanes for as long as he can remember.
Jed Kurzban says, “I want to be doing something valuable in the world and helping those that need help.” He explains that Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli & Pratt is a “boutique” law firm, with each partner practicing in the field of law he or she most prefers. Along with Jed’s work as a medical malpractice attorney, the firm also handles immigration law, corporate law, and more. For the full article, click here.
