Introduction

Probate Litigation can be a psychological minefield of conflict--for the plaintiffs and defense. Add in testamentary capacity and undue influence factors and the case calls for a particular type of skilled Forensic Expert Witness. I assist attorneys to find a suitable expert witness. Is the testator deceased? Not all experts can render an opinion absent a living testator. Was the testator vulnerable to undue influence? Who can testify about something that appears to be a third-hand opinion or hearsay? My fees are reasonable, backed by a combined 30 years of experience with probate cases and med-legal expert witnesses. If you aren't sure of the right med-legal expert for your case, and don't have the time or experience to properly vet such a person, your ability to represent your client is compromised. That's where I assist. The 400 or so Board Certified Forensic Psychiatrists who testify outside criminal venues are not easy to find. Further, Neuropsychology isn't well understood. Cut to the chase, save your client money and yourself time. I also consult about best practices, marketing and practice development to attorneys and doctors.
