Introduction

I am an experienced dual degree physical therapy and occupational therapy expert witness. I have over twenty one years of clinical experience in working with both adult and pediatric orthopedic and neurological surgical and non surgical patients both inpatient and outpatient. I have been working as a highly trained expert witness for six years and I am able to assist the attorney for both the plaintiff and defendant in areas of malpractice violations such as evaluative procedures, treatment choice method, treatment technique, re-evaluation requirements, safety protocols. I am very detail oriented and thorough with my reviews and I am able to speak very confidently regarding physical and occupational therapy matters.

I previously worked as an expert witness part-time and have expanded my business into a full-time venture while still maintaining clinical practice. I have worked and continue to work with firms such as Dughi, Hewit, & Domalewski, Milber Makris, Plousadis & Seiden, Sheely LLP, Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan, Law office of Charles Siegel and many more.
