I began my nursing career in 1977, working as a registered nurse (RN) in various hospital settings, including general medical/surgical, neonatal (newborn) intensive care and adult intensive care (ICU). I worked as an RN, caring for hospitalized patients, until 1983 when I began a new career as a medical analyst. I have been working in this capacity, assisting attorneys in analyzing, researching and litigating medical malpractice cases, ever since.
As a legal nurse consultant, I am able to utilize my nursing background, education, and experience on a daily basis. I maintain a current nursing license and participate in continuing medical education alongside physicians and nurses. This helps insure that the information provided to the attorneys is reliable, current, and authoritative.
A major component of each medical malpractice claim is review by a medical expert. Through our professional contacts, we are able to locate nationally recognized medical experts. We then work closely with the attorneys and the experts to provide a comprehensive analysis of each individual case.
My current cases cover a wide range of medical fields, however, I have special interest in cases involving orthopedic surgery, cardiac care, cancer, bariatric surgery, and nursing home care.
I am dedicated to serving our clients throughout all aspects of the legal process, from the first phone call through settlement or trial. Our common goal at Robins Kaplan LLP is to provide the highest quality legal representation for all our clients.
