“The folks at Med Expert Witness.com have proven invaluable at locating the right expert for our cases. This has been especially so in some of our malpractice matters where the physicians practicing in some subspecialties tend to be a tight club where nobody wants to render an adverse opinion or testify. That is true even here in the Metro, NY area and having a resource like Med Expert Witness.com that can draw on willing and qualified experts from other regions
has saved the day for us several times. The friendly personal followup also avoids stress when trial is around the corner and you need to get it done. I highly recommend Med Expert Witness.com.”

“In 2008 my husband’s teeth were damaged during surgery in Leduc, Alberta, Canada. Initially, he was merely going to get his teeth fixed and send a complaint to the College of Physicians and Surgeons. However, his problems persisted so he decided to launch a lawsuit. As I have worked in the legal community for over 35 years we decided to handle the case ourselves. To meet the legal tests we needed an expert, and after months of searching we met with negative results. As a last resort I contacted Jane Leavy of MedExpertwitness.com – She did an exceptional job. We provided her the history and from there she immediately began a search to find a doctor with the highest qualifications, experience and integrity. Throughout my dealings with her she was extremely efficient and always remained cognisant of the costs. Those following in our footsteps of needing an expert simply won’t find anyone better – I highly recommend Jane and her company.”
-Mr. & Mrs. Richard Doris Alberta, Canada
“As an expert witness with little extra time, no secretary, and clearly no business acumen, Jane was an outstanding liaison to ensure that all of the paperwork and follow-up were completed and timely. I believe she was outstanding in managing the expert to attorney connection.”
