Doctors driven to bankruptcy

Doctors driven to bankruptcy

Five years ago, Plantation, Fla.-based bankruptcy attorney David Langley didn’t have a single doctor as a client. Since then he’s handled at least six bankruptcy cases involving doctors. Two current clients — an orthopedic surgeon and an OB/GYN — also are in bankruptcy.

None of his physician clients had malpractice lawsuits that landed them in dire financial straits. All are “top-notch doctors,” he said.
