Charlottesville Team at Norton Health Law

Our Charlottesville Team at Norton Health Law

Our team at Norton Health Law is led by Founding Attorney Beth Norton, a multitalented legal representative with many years of experience helping Virginians with their healthcare needs. Our philosophy rests on the idea that great healthcare sometimes requires great legal representation. As a patient, you have rights when you receive medical care, submit insurance claims, or seek compensation for injuries incurred at work. Sometimes, those rights are not honored.

Having previously represented the corporate side of healthcare at several prestigious Virginia law firms, Attorney Beth Norton realized that patients are the ones who most benefit from excellent legal representation. Her time as a nurse helped her understand the day-to-day and long-term needs of patients and the importance of healthcare unencumbered by legal disputes. Today, she leads Norton Health Law with the express purpose of representing the consumer side of healthcare.

Our team at Norton Health Law includes:

  • Beth Norton, founding attorney, a personable yet fierce advocate ready to fight for her clients; she was raised in Virginia and has worked in the state for much of her life, earning her law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law
  • Cori Bedois, paralegal and special projects manager, who studied at the University of Virginia and devotes substantial time to public service and advocacy organizations
  • Mary Wade, nurse paralegal, uses her patient care and nursing leadership experience to assist clients with healthcare-related cases.

We champion patient advocacy in consumer healthcare above all else and will do whatever it takes to achieve a positive outcome in your case. We have substantial experience in numerous areas of consumer-focused healthcare law and frequently draw upon our attorney’s time in corporate healthcare law to anticipate how the opposition will attempt to fight your case.

Some of the consumer healthcare law areas our team can help you with include:

Regardless of your situation, Norton Health Law is committed to fighting for you and protecting your rights as a patient. If you feel your rights have been violated, are struggling to get what you are owed, are facing invalid charges, or just need help planning for your future care, we have the knowledge, compassion, and legal skill to help.
