a med/neg. catastrophically injured baby case, at the 11th hour,
the Defence sprung on us a new theory requiring us to locate rebuttal
experts in two rather obscure medical areas. We were doomed! Dr.
Limbert found us excellent people on extremely short notice who
were more than effective, reasonable and willing to assist. Dr.
Limbert saved the day. Without reservation, I recommend Dr. Limbert
as a wonderful legal resource.

Limbert provides an invaluable service to any prudent practitioner
truly concerned about his client and the advisability of proceeding
in an area of law fraught with pitfalls, not the least of which
is whether there really is a case to pursue, even on a preliminary
prima facie basis. Dr. Limbert provides this preliminary expertise
and has done so for my firm on numerous occasions in an efficient,
complete and forthright manner, rendering opinions which are candid,
and most importantly, supportable in a legal context.
Limbert and his services did not exist one would be tempted to say
that every firm should minimally have a Dr. Limbert on staff."

on whether my clients' complaints warrant further investigation
have been a tremendous help, as has your indication more frequently
than one would expect that other issues should be looked into. It
is now my template in conducting this type of litigation. "You are
very approachable. You will not tell me what I want to hear, but
will tell me what I should be told. You then help in locating the
appropriate experts if we decide the matter should be pursued legally.
"This has allowed
me and my clients to go into the process knowing that we have the
edge in knowing much more about our claim than the defence will
ever know. Does that guarantee success? No, but it does make the
decision on whether to proceed much easier because we know from
an early stage the strengths and weaknesses of our claim. There
are still surprises but they are much fewer than before.
for your recent assistance. I look forward to working with you again

difficult and complex it consistently is. A complete and accurate
analysis of the merits of each potential case is crucial.
careful analysis of all of the medical evidence and literature has
on more than one occasion enabled me to locate the proverbial "needle

malpractice claims. Dr. John Limbert's services have been invaluable
to me. His objective and professional approach to screening medical

stage saves resources for my clients and my firm.

been pleased with the services you have offered to us over the past
three to four years.
"We have found your services particularly helpful in the following
Early identification of issues - to be able to send materials
to you for a preliminary assessment on whether there is merit to
considering action has been valuable.. As you know, we have had
a number of cases where, from a layman’s perspective, it suggests
a clear case of negligence. However, on having our materials more
thoroughly reviewed by you, we have found our initial assessments
not to be correct and files have been shut down before significant
expense and exposure has been incurred. Conversely, cases which
we felt were weak have been pursued successfully as a result of
you having identified an area which had not been considered. This
has been a great service to both our firm and, more importantly,
to our clients.
Preparation for Discovery - it has been most helpful from
time to time to have you design appropriate questioning which assists
us in targeting the Discovery process in a more effective manner.
Expert witnesses - we have very much appreciated your assistance
in identifying for us potential candidates as expert witnesses who
we are then able to follow up with in preparation for trial on a
variety of matters. In short, we have found your services to be
a worthwhile investment and look forward to continuing our working
relationship with you."

writing on behalf of all the lawyers at Gordon & Velletta to thank
you for the invaluable assistance you have provided us over the
past three years. We have found that seeking your opinion early
saves this firm time and money.
"Many times we have been surprised to find that cases we think
very promising have huge problems. In those situations, you have
always provided careful analysis and clear explanations for your
opinions. By getting that advice early, we have avoided incurring
massive expenses in situations where success is extremely unlikely.
"On the other hand, in cases you think viable, you have been
of tremendous assistance in isolating the real medical/legal issues
and in helping us to understand exactly where it appears the standard
of care has not been met. Then you have gone on to assist us in
locating experts and framing the questions we need to ask in order
to obtain expert opinions on precisely the points in issue. This
too has assisted in keeping disbursements manageable during the
course of litigation.
"We can not thank you enough for your excellent services."
