LEWISTON– The Berman & Simmons law firm is pleased to announce that attorney Elizabeth Kayatta, a Maine native, has joined the firm.
She will represent plaintiffs in medical malpractice, personal injury, wrongful death and other civil litigation matters.
Kayatta grew up in Cape Elizabeth. She attended Princeton University and graduated magna cum laude from Boston College Law School. She has spent the past five years in Boston representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases and other civil disputes.
