Our Medical Expert Witness Process

Maximizing the value of your expert witness engagement


Through AMFS’ three decades in business, we’ve honed our medical expert witness process to deliver unparalleled expertise and unrivaled support. A referral alone doesn’t build a strong case. Proven experience does. From our Physician Medical Directors and medical expert witnesses to our seasoned medical-legal team, experience is fundamental to every stage of our process. To get your case off to a solid start, we provide a free consultation with an AMFS Physician Medical Director with decades of medical and medico-legal experience. Throughout the lifetime of your expert engagement, our team helps you streamline and navigate the process so that you can focus on constructing your case. Explore our three-step medical expert witness process. Then, request an expert to start constructing your winning case.


Free Case Review Discuss your case with an AMFS Physician Medical Director at no cost. During this free consultation, an AMFS Physician Medical Director will analyze your case’s medical issues and recommend the appropriate medical expert witness specialty based on your case’s unique needs. Our clients also use this opportunity to explore potential defenses, counterclaims and cross-claims alongside our Physician Medical Directors, who each boast decades of medical legal experience.


Robust Medical Expert Search Review the medical expert witnesses we recommend for your case. Our medical research team will scour our extensive medical expert witness network for candidates who meet your unique case requirements. Review the CVs of recommended medical experts within 2-3 days of your request and consult our Physician Medical Directors with any questions. Expedited service is also available.


Medical Expert Engagement Engage your medical expert witness as our case managers streamline billing and scheduling. Once you select your medical expert witness, our case managers are available to assist you, ensuring you maximize the value of your engagement. In addition to streamlining billing and scheduling, our skilled case managers help attorneys new to the medical expert witness process navigate the terrain. Throughout the life of your case, our Physician Medical Directors and case managers are just a call away, providing essential insights into both your case and your medical expert witness strategy.


Our Billing Structure

Unlike many medical expert witness services, we provide candidate CV reviews and a case consultation free of cost. With AMFS as your partner, you’re only billed when you retain a medical expert witness. To ensure you receive the most competitive pricing, we pre-negotiate your expert’s rate and require time estimates for each assigned task. Your case manager streamlines billing throughout the life of your case, reviewing all time estimates and adjusting them on your behalf in the rare case that an estimate is inappropriate. AMFS does share in a portion of the hourly rate you are charged for the expert’s work.
