Private: Litigation Support

Litigation support is a vital component to justice in the area of medical malpractice, both for plaintiffs and defendants. A well-articulated explanation of medical decision-making can make or break a case.

I provide many service in the area of forensic medicolegal work. These include legal consultation, record review, expert reports, deposition, and court testimony.

I use my experience in all aspects of general urology to frame and guide my testimony in clear, precise language that allows lay jurors to understand complex anatomy, physiology, and surgery. In this way, complex cases can be broken down into more comprehensible elements enabling jury members to understand medical facts. They can then focus on rendering informed decisions.
