Frequently Asked Questions

We try to anticipate questions you might have about our services and provide the answers here. If you need additional information please contacts us.
1. What is a Nutris CLNC®?
We are registered nurses who have successfully mastered the rigorous CLNC® Certification Program developed by the company that pioneered the field of legal nurse consulting.  Nutris’ professionals have the expertise to quickly pinpoint and interpret medical and nursing issues in any case involving health, illness or injury.

2. Why should I use a CLNC® and not an MD?

Cost-effectiveness!  Nutris‘  CLNCs® have constant, face-to-face patient contact and extensive experience in the "trenches" of the healthcare system and can educate attorneys about a wide range of basic medical issues.  Our experience allows us to focus on relevant and pertinent information to the case in a time efficient way without sacrificing analytical accuracy, saving you time and money otherwise spent on expensive medical experts.

3. Why do I need a CLNC® when I already have a Paralegal?

Though paralegal's play a vital role in assisting attorneys, they simply do not have the medical training, clinical experience, or the insider's knowledge on the inner workings of the medical system that a Registered Nurse does.  In today's complex healthcare climate, it is imperative to have someone on your team with education in science and medicine who will successfully decipher the information and nuances that will deliver optimal results.

4. Can Nutris help me identify testifying witnesses?   

YES!  Nutris has access to professionals in all specialties of the medical field, as well as an up to date registry of qualified, forensic experts that are readily available to testify.

5. When should I call Nutris to enlist their services?

Nutris is an invaluable asset and integral part of your litigation team and should be enlisted the moment a potential case becomes available.  We can identify the medical issues pertinent to the case, screen for merit, simplify voluminous amounts of cryptic medical records, identify and locate expert and testifying witnesses and provide dozens of other services to save you time and money.

6. Why do I need a CLNC® in the first place?

The attorney is the legal expert, but the nurses at Nutris are experts on the healthcare system and its inner workings.  Our staff gives you an all-access pass to the "backstage" of medicine and affords you cost-effective expertise for reviewing medical records and understanding and translating the terminology and subtleties of the healthcare system.

7. Does Nutris only handle cases for attorneys in the Los Angeles area?
Absolutely NOT!  Though we are located in Valencia, CA clients from throughout the United States can benefit from our services.  Cases can be handled electronically, via fax or express mail, through video link-up, or we can travel throughout the 50 states to conduct in-person appointments.
