Richard L. Groffsky is an attorney at Sommers Schwartz and focuses on Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury litigation.

I have always been interested in medicine

Becoming a lawyer and handling medical malpractice cases allows me to learn a great deal about the subject. What I enjoy most about being a lawyer is our ability to make things easier and better in the face of a tragic circumstance that someone has had to endure.

Understanding the medicine, and combining that with my legal training and experience to help our clients get what they need and deserve has been the highlight of my career.
