Britain Thames is a trial attorney at the Law Offices of David J. Hoey, P.C and a registered nurse. She has a special fondness for elderly patients and clients who are often in a vulnerable position because their body cannot keep up with what their mind wants. She understands that they have special needs that are often not met and when the system fails them, Britain believes we can and should do better. This became personal when Britain saw firsthand what her grandmother had to endure. Her grandmother was a huge influence in Britain’s life during her younger years and Britain was fortunate that her healthcare background allowed her to assist her grandmother towards the end of her life.

Britain’s nursing background makes her a better attorney in many ways. In her role as an attorney, she uses her nursing knowledge to understand the importance of how to meet the medical burden of proof in a trial and how to explain medical terms and procedures to clients. This experience was crucial in her role as an emergency room nurse and Britain brings that same experience to the table as an attorney. That, along with her passion to make the healthcare industry a better, safer, and less intimidating environment, makes her an attorney that works hard to assist clients when the industry has failed them.

Britain is a member of the American Bar Association, the Massachusetts Bar Association, the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys, the Massachusetts Nurses Association, National Nurses United, and the Emergency Nurses Association.
