The Benefits of Nutritionist and Dietitian Expert Witnesses

A dietitian is an expert in food and nutrition, and a nutritionist advises patients on matters of nutrition. When your case requires medical analysis or testimony in one of these areas, it’s crucial to find a medical expert witness who is certified and actively practicing in the U.S.

In many jurisdictions, including most U.S. states, the term “nutritionist” isn’t legally protected. Anyone may call him or herself a nutritionist, with no qualifications. By contrast, only those who meet professional requirements may call themselves a dietitian.

Dietitians participate in research, supervise the service and preparation of food, develop modified diets and educate individuals on proper nutrition.

In medical settings, dietitians may provide artificial nutritional needs to patients unable to eat normally. They may also help patients address medical issues by modifying their diets. In some facilities, these experts can obtain, prepare and serve flavorful, nutritious food to patients, family members and health care providers.

Qualities of an Effective Diet and Nutrition Expert Witness

To help you build your winning case, a medical expert witness needs more than just professional experience. At AMFS, we prescreen each expert by analyzing more than 20 data points spanning education, experience, medico-legal knowledge and communication skills.

  • Education: AMFS connects you with Board Certified medical expert witnesses who have earned degrees from top universities. Our dietician and nutrition expert witnesses hold all certifications required in their field.

  • Medico-legal knowledge: AMFS expert witnesses have experience in the medical-legal field, including care standards, causation and a proven record for quality written and oral testimony.
  • Communication skills: Medical expert witnesses are called upon to demystify complex procedures for jurors who aren’t familiar with medical jargon. Dieticians and nutritionists who communicate information in a clear, authoritative manner are generally the most effective medical expert witnesses.
