The purpose of this service is to aid attorneys in clearly identifying the medical issues present in their case, as well as, identifying the most appropriate specialties to retain as experts.


For a reasonable, flat fee, attorneys can have their medical records screened by a multidisciplinary panel of experienced physicians who will collaborate to analyze the case for standard of care, causation and damages. This information will allow you to make an informed decision to accept, reject, defend or settle a potential medical malpractice case.


Upon retention, one of our in-house physicians will make a doctor-to-doctor presentation of your case to a number of qualified, potential experts in your region, in effect, interviewing prospective experts on your behalf. To ensure honesty and objectivity, our physician presents only the facts to the potential expert and does not reveal whether the case is for the plaintiff or the defendant. Thus, the initial discussion of your case takes place in the context of total objectivity which later can be revealed to a jury. Conflict checks, our prior experience with the physician, the expert's take on your case and your specific needs are all factors in our search for the ideal expert(s).
