Profile

10 years ago I had never heard of forensic psychiatry. My first thought was "how do you do psychiatry on dead people?" Too much CSI. I found attorneys were equally struggling to know if they could best represent their client bringing a Forensic Psychiatrist or Psychologist into the mix. I found it to be infinitely more interesting than my work as a paralegal for 20 years. My legal background, however, enabled me to speak to attorney-clients in their own language. It was very different than the language of medicine, forensic or otherwise. As I set up a marketing plan I applied my experience with how attorneys seek experts to the expert's own positioning to be found. I believe every element of the forensic doctor's practice can be designed with the attorney's practice methods in mind. Goodwill and repeat business followed.

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area working with doctors and lawyers nationwide. My Expert clients are in the Midwest (Illinois, Minnesota), Southeast (North and South Carolina, VA and Georgia, Mid-Atlantic region (PA, DC), Southwest (Texas, Nevada), West Coast (LA, SF).
