Richard T. Cozzola

Richard T. Cozzola has spent most of his legal career looking out for the needs of children and adolescents. He has been the supervisory attorney for the Children's Law Project of the Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago (LAFMC) since 1997, where he works to protect the rights of children, especially those in the foster care system. Previously, Mr. Cozzola served as the director of training and deputy public guardian of the Cook County Public Guardian's Juvenile Division, as well as the supervising attorney of the Cabrini Green Legal Aid Clinic. He has also worked as a staff attorney at Legal Services of Eastern Michigan, an associate at Lawrence A. Kerns & Associates and adjunct professor in the litigation skills and legal writing programs at DePaul College of Law. In 2000, Mr. Cozzola received an Equal Justice Award for the landmark legal victory in In Re Adoption of E.L.
TImothy B. McDonald, M.D., JD

Timothy B. McDonald, MD, JD, is a professor of anesthesiology and pediatrics at the University of Illinois at Chicago as well as a lawyer, licensed in the state of Illinois. He serves as the chief safety and risk officer for health affairs for the university and chair of the University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago Medical Staff Review Board. Dr. McDonald has become a sought after speaker, author and presenter following his development and implementation of the Medical Error Full Disclosure program at the Medical Center. His areas of interest and research in patient safety/risk management have allowed him to champion open dialogue between care givers and patients and their families when a medical error occurs. "This is not a recommendation most malpractice attorneys would support, but it has proven to be the right and smart thing to do for both physicians and patients," said McDonald, who received his medical education at Indiana University and law degree from Loyola University. "With the context of an appropriate process, once a physician, respiratory therapist or any medical professional takes responsibility for an error and then works to correct that error, the likelihood of a lawsuit significantly diminishes. It's the right thing to do." Two years after the University of Illinois instituted their comprehensive approach to adverse patient events, the institution has actually seen a reduction in lawsuits and has not seen the financial medical malpractice catastrophe that many predicted with such a program that includes apology after error.
