Proudly Defending

a Medical Hero

In January of 2021, Dr. Hasan Gokal made national news when he was charged with stealing COVID-19 vaccines. In reality, Dr. Gokal hadn't stolen any vaccines; he had administered ten vaccine doses that were about to expire to high-risk patients. Facing unjust charges and the complete destruction of his reputation, Dr. Gokal hired attorney Paul Doyle for his defense. Paul successfully presented Dr. Gokal's side of the story to a grand jury, and the charges were dropped.
