A Certified Legal Nurse Consultant is a registered nurse who uses existing expertise and experience as a healthcare professional plus specialized CLNC® training to consult on medical-related cases. A CLNC can help you win the case by bridging the gap between law and medicine.

What is the role of a CLNC?

While the attorney is the expert on legal issues, the CLNC is the expert on nursing, medicine, and the inner workings of the healthcare system.

Who Will Benefit from CLNC® Services?

1.    Attorneys (plaintiff and defense)

2.    Insurance companies

3.    Healthcare facilities

4.    Other CLNCs and medical-legal consultants (plaintiff and defense)

5.    Government agencies

6.    Private corporations (e.g., for developing corporate strategies for quality     

        assurance, risk identification and management, evaluation and control of

        loss exposure)

How Do You Win Cases?

According to the Houston Chronicle, "Of the approximately 1,162,124* attorneys in practice today, 25 percent deal with medical malpractice and personal injury cases." These attorneys rely on specially trained CLNC® consultants to help them win their cases.

Why will a CLNC® consultant make an attorney’s job easier?

CLNC® services include assisting with discovery; conducting research; reviewing medical records; identifying standards of care; preparing reports and summaries on the extent of injury or illness; and locating expert witnesses.  As a member of the litigation team, a CLNC makes professional, objective, and efficient contributions to all parties involved.

Why use a CLNC?

No one else could do what Certified Legal Nurse Consultants® can do to save me time and money in preparing medical-related cases.

No legal assistant would be aware of the latest health care issues and understand how they apply to my cases.
