Mr. Flowers has represented countless families whose lives have been tragically changed because of defective medical products and prescription medications as well as medical malpractice, catastrophic injuries from workplace injuries and automobile accidents. He has also represented the victims and families of victims of nursing home abuse and of sexual abuse.

Most notably, he was the organization's president from 2009-2010. His tenure was marked by the organization's successful fight to protect the rights of patients. His writings during that time were widely distributed, and can be found archived here: http://www.iltla.com/
