About the Author
Theresa Barta is a physician's advocate. She started her law practice in 1998 and has since represented hundreds of physicians in litigation matters against insurance companies, medical groups, and HMOs. She tried one of the first cases in California under the state's anti-retaliation statute and has won many multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for her clients. In 2013, she was named Top Gun Trial Lawyer of the Year. Ms. Barta began her career with the law firm of Morrison & Foerster, where she specialized in business litigation, and from there went on to work for Shernoff Bidart Echeverria, where she litigated cases in the firm's health-insurance practice--in particular, bad-faith disputes against health insurers and HMOs. She is admitted to practice in the United States Supreme Court, US Courts of Appeal for the Ninth and Eleventh Circuits, and all of the state and federal courts in California. She holds a JD from Loyola Law School, where she graduated Order of the Coif and was a member of the St. Thomas More Law Honor Society. Ms. Barta lives in Newport Beach, California, with her husband and has two daughters.
