Hartley Hampton, Attorney at Law


Attorney at Law

Hartley Hampton is the medical malpractice attorney you want in your corner. He has been practicing law in Houston for 35+ years. When the 2003 “tort reform” package came out regarding medical malpractice, Hartley stood strong on representing victims of medical negligence while many others simply stopped taking these cases.

With a well-established medical negligence practice, Hartley now provides legal representation and counsel exclusively to individuals who have been injured due to medical malpractice or medical negligence.

Voted "Best Law Firm" for Medical Malpractice by U.S. News!

A medical mistake can change your life forever, particularly when committed by the medical professional you trusted with your health. Hampton & King has been fighting for the rights of medical malpractice victims for more than 60 years. Our efforts have been recognized by US News, who named us one of the “Best Law Firms” for victims of medical malpractice.


Over the course of two decades of representation, Hampton & King has established itself as one of the most effective medical malpractice firms in the state. Attorney Hartley Hampton has represented families seeking restitution through malpractice litigation for more than 40 years, and he has handled some of the most formidably challenging cases in Texas and New Mexico. The firm’s track record of victories for those injured by medical professional incompetence and negligence speaks for itself.

Attorney Hampton had been practicing law for more than two decades when, in 2003, the Texas Legislature passed the most dramatic and constricting legal ‘reform’ package of this century, permanently altering the landscape of medical malpractice law. The package measures heavily favor medical professionals and the businesses they represent, making it more difficult than ever for victims of medical malpractice to receive the compensation due to them for pain and injuries suffered.

In response, Attorney Hampton chose to exclusively represent patients harmed through medical malpractice and negligence. He is joined by Chris King, a skilled attorney with over 20 years of experience handling medical negligence and malpractice litigation. Together, our two lead attorneys form a powerful aggregate that provides caring and understanding counsel for their plaintiffs, guiding them through the myriad legal obstacles toward restitution. The firm of Hampton & King has a long history of cases won in Texas and New Mexico, and they are well versed in the medical malpractice and negligence law technicalities of both states.

Medical Malpractice Is All We Do

We know that you have many options when it comes to selecting a medical malpractice attorney in the greater Houston area. We encourage you to painstakingly review the qualifications of any lawyer or firm you are considering retaining to represent you. What other areas of law do they ‘specialize’ in? How familiar are they with the unusual demands and complexities of medical malpractice and negligence law?

At Hampton & King, medical malpractice and negligence is all we do. While many personal injury attorneys cast a broad professional net in their practice, we focus on one area of law, because we know our clients need advocates who truly understand the unique challenges facing them. That is why we only accept medical negligence and malpractice cases. Our familiarity and extensive experience within this specific area of law sets us apart as a singular source of resolution confidence for our plaintiffs.

Our Promise to our Clients:

  • We will regard the attorney-client relationship as a sacred trust
  • We will be committed to providing ethical, state-of-the-art representation
  • We will dedicate the resources required to win
  • We will only be paid if we succeed

The legal team at Hampton & King has the experience. We have the results. We have the resources. And, most importantly, we have the drive. Our firm cares about the people involved in the cases we accept, and we always go the extra mile to secure a just outcome. We are the team that ensures compensation.


Medical malpractice lawyers have to strike a unique balance in the legal field: we have to understand the legal and the medical side of your case. The better we understand what happened to you on a medical level, the more effectively we can represent you in court.

A full-time MD is available to help us develop the strongest case possible for each of our plaintiffs. Their expertise helps us identify precisely where malpractice or negligence occurred during your care, giving us the industry-specific information we need to establish a defined narrative of your case, and litigate for maximum recompense.
