Jack Heda, D.P.M., J.D. began an Of Counsel relationship with Smith, Stout, Bigman & Brock, P.A. in 2016. He focuses his practice on healthcare license defense law, risk management and insurance defense, with emphasis on medical malpractice defense. After 10 years as a successful podiatric surgeon, Dr. Heda began practicing law. He has more than 18 years experience defending health care providers as a Florida attorney. He has extensive experience with the Board of Medicine (AHCA/DOH) investigations and complaints, as well as medical malpractice matters. His nearly 30 combined years of the practice of medicine and law facilitates a unique knowledge base to defend the physician in medical malpractice, investigations, complaints, licensure appeals and other disciplinary matters. While Dr. Heda maintains a separate office in Weston, Florida, his Of Counsel relationship with our Firm brings additional depth of knowledge and experience to our insurance defense team.
