On November 11th, 2020, we were joined by Mark Levy, MD and Charles Saldanha, MD, members of Experts.com since 2005, for a really informative discussion on growing and managing your forensic #expertwitness practice. Doctors Levy and Saldanha started Forensic Psychiatric Associates, LP, in 2005. Dr. Levy had been a solo practitioner of clinical and forensic psychiatry for many years before he and Dr. Saldanha decided to partner and build a nationwide forensic #psychiatry and #psychology practice.
They now have a team of more than 15 psychiatrists and psychologists with highly refined areas of specialization, allowing them to focus on a wide variety of psychiatric and psychological claims.
Their expansive practice has allowed them to take on a variety of case types that are not always available to a small or solo practice. In fact, the larger operation has allowed them to take on multi-plaintiff litigation and multi-district litigation (MDL). When a matter arises that requires the evaluation of many different injured parties, they are equipped to logistically approach this type of lawsuit. As a result of their successful partnership, they were the perfect guests to join and share their experience in growing a practice. In this replay, you’ll find information on the following:
- The variety of avenues Mark and Charles use to bring in new cases.
- How they get in front of the right types of lawyers.
- Online and offline marketing tactics.
- Marketing budgets.
- Adding staff members to handle billing, summarization, and contracting.
- Use of digital case management platforms.
- Guidance on retainer and engagement agreements.
