At Sandweg & Ager, the foundation of our success is the hard work and experience of two seasoned lawyers, Bill Sandweg and John Ager. We are assisted by several professional, full-time staff, including a dedicated nurse consultant and a paralegal, who have more than 50 years combined experience. In addition, a physician, who is also a lawyer and a former partner, is "of counsel" to our firm.

A Unique Understanding of Both Sides of Personal Injury Cases
While we now primarily represent injured parties — plaintiffs — in personal injury and wrongful death litigation arising out of medical negligence and other wrongful conduct, we started out defending doctors, hospitals and others against such claims. We know the methods used to defend against liability for negligent conduct and we use this special knowledge to shape litigation strategies that achieve favorable results in our Phoenix law practice and in the cases we litigate through out Arizona.
The Client Always Comes First
We practice law because we enjoy helping the people who need it most. Strong and open lines of communication with our clients are essential for our success. We believe the only in working with our clients as a team can we achieve the best results. Therefore, the development of close personal relationships with the people we represent is a critical part of the process. Our clients are consistently updated on their cases, and we are always available to personally answer any questions they have.
Our clients are our friends. We often stay in touch even many years after a case is concluded. We are honored to have helped so many people move forward with their lives after a tragic event by obtaining justice from the health care providers who have caused them harm.
