Arkansas lawyer David Couch used to make a living defending nursing homes. Till he switched sides and started suing them.
He was in Richmond Feb. 26 to talk to the VTLA’s Long-Term Care Litigation Section on such topics as proving understaffing.
Couch said that he likes nothing better than being told he will be trying a case in a “conservative” venue.
“Bubba may be conservative,” he said, but if it’s Bubba’s mama being abused for corporate profit, “Bubba’s gonna take them to the woodshed and whip their butts….Bubba will take care of his own kind,” Couch said.
