About Medical Intelligence Consultants
Welcome to a new way of getting knowledgeable, experienced medical litigation support that is more cost-efficient and more responsive than traditional methods.
The Birth of a New Category in Medical Litigation Support
Medical Intelligence Consultants was created to fill a void in medical legal litigation. Very busy in their clinical practices, medical experts frequently cannot be responsive to attorneys’ time-sensitive needs in litigation. In many conversations with attorneys, a recurrent frustration is, “I can’t get in touch with my experts; they are always too busy to get back to me, and our nurse paralegals are available, but they often lack the depth of knowledge that we need to answer our questions.” Medical Intelligence Consultants was established in 2012 to remedy these issues, creating the new paradigm of the “medical legal consulting expert.”
Since its inception, Medical Intelligence Consultants has provided litigation support to medical malpractice attorneys (both plaintiff and defense) as well as personal injury, disability, and divorce attorneys. Medical Intelligence Consultants has a team of medical specialists and healthcare professionals whose only mission is to provide timely, accurate, in-depth medical legal consulting expert services in all specialties of medicine for the entire duration of the litigation.
While we are located in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, we provide services to clients nationwide.
With his background in basic and clinical research, clinical medicine, venture capital, and medico-legal services, Marc founded Medical Intelligence Consultants to be a medical legal consulting expert to the legal profession.
