Julia Arfaa is an experienced Baltimore attorney committed to serving victims of medical malpractice, birth injuries, catastrophic injuries, and the families of victims of wrongful death. For more than 20 years, Ms. Arfaa has represented individuals and their families in Maryland, as well as Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Ms. Arfaa is renowned for her ability to handle complex medical issues, and to aggressively advocate for the maximum compensation that her clients deserve. Ms. Arfaa has experience with all forms of medical malpractice, including infection and septic shock, cancer misdiagnoses, spinal cord injuries, post-partum hemorrhages, brain aneurysms, and stroke misdiagnoses.

Ms. Arfaa’s experience and track record make her an excellent choice for Maryland victims of medical malpractice. Over the years, she has obtained a number of record-setting settlements and jury awards on behalf of her clients. In July 2012, Ms. Arfaa secured a $21 million verdict in Baltimore City against a local physician and hospital for their negligence during the birth of a child. The following year, Ms. Arfaa obtained a $15.65 million verdict in May 2013 against another local hospital and physician for negligent care during labor and delivery that resulted in a child’s cerebral palsy. These awards constitute two of the three largest verdicts in Maryland history for birth injuries resulting from medical negligence. In November 2017, Ms. Arfaa secured an $18.54 million verdict for an individual who was not properly resuscitated during a code for a massive pulmonary embolus. This award is the largest jury verdict in any medical malpractice case in the history of Baltimore County. In 2018 and 2019, Baltimore Magazine named Ms. Arfaa “The Face of Medical Malpractice.”
