For the past 13 years, Dr. Armin Feldman has provided Pre-Trial/Pre-Litigation medical consulting to our legal system. He has trained over 1,600 physicians around the United States to learn how to do this kind of medical consulting and supplement their income by providing these services. Dr. Feldman consults on those 9 of 10 cases that are settled and never go to trial.

We discuss what makes medicolegal consultant work different from a medical expert.  Essentially, you are working for the plaintiff’s attorney in a personal injury or workman’s compensation case, usually because of some type of traumatic injury, trying to determine if the case has merit, reviewing the case for concurrent adverse outcomes that may not have been identified, like depression, and assisting the attorney until the case goes to trial, when an expert witness takes over. That being said, most cases settle. We discuss how to get a foot in the door, how to market yourself, and how much time you should expect this to occupy. He has an upcoming conference at the end of April, virtual, of course, that you can find at
