About Our Firm: Hampton & King

Dedicated Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Houston

Hampton & King has established itself as the go-to firm for the most complex and demanding medical malpractice cases in Texas and New Mexico. Attorney Hartley Hampton has represented families in malpractice litigation for more than 35 years. Hartley was practicing law for more than two decades when the 2003 Legislature passed the nation’s most drastic “tort reform” package. The measures heavily favored medical professionals, making it all the more difficult for victims to win compensation in medical malpractice cases.

While many firms and lawyers simply stopped taking these cases as a result, Hartley Hampton responded differently. He stepped up and responded to the need for skilled medical malpractice counsel.

He chose to focus his practice exclusively on representing patients in medical negligence cases. Hartley is joined by Chris King, a skilled attorney with 16 years of experience handling medical negligence cases. Chris accepts cases in both Texas and New Mexico. Together, our two lead attorneys provide caring and understanding counsel in the face of serious legal obstacles.
