What others say about us

Jim Biggart, Esq.

“Nena does outstanding work.  I’m a lawyer whose practice involves personal injury.  I get Nena involved in my significant high-exposure cases with complex medical issues and she has always given me great reports, analysis and recommendations.  Most importantly, she explains the medical problems and treatment in a way that lay people can understand, which is critical to lawyers trying to do the same for jurors.  My clients have been thrilled with her work and the results we’ve gotten with her expertise on board.  I highly recommend Nena!”

“She has helped me turn the tide in two personal injury cases where she reviewed medical records and organized a comprehensive grid of medical treatment.  She is platinum.”

Jon E. Lewis, Esq.

“I employed Nena to help me locate some experts in the medical field.  Not only was Nena prompt, she was tenacious and after me.  Nena provided me with several options to choose from, and she did the ground work I did not have time to do.  One issue in the legal nurse consulting field is the ability for the nurse to fully understand the issues and be able to relate that to the case and the experts.  Nena had no problem with that, and she was able to find the expert we needed.  Based on my experience with Nena, I would highly recommend her to other attorneys who need nurse consulting work or someone to locate a highly qualified expert for a case.”

“My supervisor and I reviewed your report this morning and it is fabulous!  Exactly what I needed for tomorrow!  I will let you know if it settles, but I anticipate that it won’t and there will be more records for you.  Another compliment for you….your reports are proof-read and well edited.  One of my supervisor’s pet peeves are professional reports with typos, and your reports are so well done.  He was really impressed.”
