LOUISVILLE, Ky., February 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Last month, a personal injury lawyer Seth A. Gladstein became president of the Louisville Bar Association (LBA). After working in medical malpractice defense for 10 years, Gladstein decided to start his own practice, Gladstein Law Firm, LLC, with a focus on plaintiffs in personal injury and medical malpractice cases. Since founding his firm, Gladstein has received numerous accolades for his leadership, professionalism and community involvement. This past month, Super Lawyers® named Gladstein a super Kentucky medical malpractice plaintiff attorney for the seventh straight year. Recognition is reserved for only 5% of attorneys statewide in a particular practice area. He has had considerable success in medical malpractice cases, recouping substantial awards for his clients, including:
- $1.8 million settlement in a medical malpractice case for a patient who underwent unnecessary surgery and suffered intraoperative and postoperative complications,
- $1.75 million settlement for a client whose doctors failed to diagnose and treat his lung cancer in a timely manner,
- $550,000 for a man who suffers from permanent urinary problems due to his doctor’s inability to diagnose prostate cancer; and
- $500,000 for the family of a person who died following a medication error.
Although these results set Gladstein apart from many other Kentucky Lawyers, he is one of the few lawyers with experience on the other side of the table. His experience defending medical malpractice is a boon to many plaintiffs, as he knows the tactics used by attorneys defending hospitals and other medical conglomerates.
Plans for the future of the LBA
As president, Gladstein hopes to increase the LBA’s local presence, particularly in continuing legal education and community outreach. “The LBA plans to improve the way it communicates and interacts with its members, as well as with the general public,” Gladstein says in his first letter. “This means looking at the LBA’s brand image, improving the LBA’s technology capabilities, better assessing member needs…and looking at ways our members can better utilize the Bar Center.” In addition to these goals, Gladstein wants to educate voters about the role of the justice system and give candidates the opportunity to speak with the LBA and the community.
However, Gladstein does not intend to stop there. He also wants to create more volunteer opportunities for LBA members and their families. “By the spring of 2022, we hope to have at least one LBA Habitat for Humanity home,” he says. “I hope the LBA will always have at least one Habitat for Humanity project going at all times.”
Ultimately, Gladstein wants the LBA to fulfill a supportive role for future generations of lawyers in the Louisville region. While he admits that interest in voluntary professional organizations has declined since the start of the pandemic, he is eager to start making significant changes to the LBA’s strategy. “I am personally excited to begin my journey as President of the LBA, as well as to help begin to chart the course of the organization for the foreseeable future.”
