DO YOU HAVE A CASE?

When you need medical insight to find out how strong a potential suit may be—or if it’s even worth filing at all—you could let your paralegals plow through a mountain of paperwork … or, you could save substantial man-hours and money by calling MEL.

All of MEL’s Registered Nurses have Bachelor of Science degrees, years of legal experience, and are uniquely qualified to quickly access and evaluate the information you need to decide whether to take a case to trial, put it on hold, or pass.

Our nurses are backed by an on-call advisory board comprised of an elite selection of some of the most highly experienced and well-respected physicians and attorneys in the industry.

Mel’s Pre-Trial Services


Plaintiff Intake Validation

MEL’s nurses don’t just review information, they go back and ask the relevant parties concise, targeted questions, often turning up critical details those with less medical savvy might miss that can make or break a case.

RECORD RETRIEVAL

Without medical training, tracking down precise medical data can be like finding a needle in a haystack, but MEL’s Expert Nurses know exactly what information you need, how to access it quickly, and how to document it efficiently and accurately.

MEDICAL RECORD REVIEW

MEL’s experts can prepare your evidence in clear-cut terms easily understood by laymen as well as professionals, so you can be assured of putting your case in its best light.

Expert Witness


MEL’s Physician Experts have been published in respected medical periodicals, and are recognized among their peers as leaders in their chosen fields.

Whether it’s mass tort/product liability, medical malpractice, personal injury, nursing home misconduct, brain injury, or any medically related case, you can count on MEL’s diverse roster of medical experts to provide compelling expert testimony specifically tailored to prove the facts of your case while using the truth, the whole truth — and nothing but the truth.

Post-Settlement Services


Whether single plaintiff or Mass Tort, MEL’s unique Post Settlement Services offer you the means to quickly and accurately track, disburse, and record settlements, no matter how big or small.
