"Robert Malaer's medical reviews and professional reports have been pivotal in the success of my cases. He was more efficient then hiring an MD expert right away and far more cost effective. Robert's report was instrumental in fighting back the defense arguments in mediation by proving causation resulting in immediate settlement. I would highly recommend Robert and Malaer Legal Nurse Consulting for any attorney seeking a comprehensive and professional review of medically related cases."

"I'm a criminal defense attorney who has worked with multiple legal nurses over the years. I recently hired Robert Malaer to help me on a DUII case with a complicated medical defense. Robert's experience in nursing as well as his comfort in conveying his knowledge were major reasons for my client's victory in a jury trial. Robert was professional in all regards. He quickly brought me up to speed about our defense, he prepared the materials that became the backbone of the medical portion of our case, and he was always willing to answer questions. When he got a curveball in the case, he stepped up to the plate and dealt with it in an organized manner. I'd highly recommend Malaer Legal Nurse Consulting for anyone looking for the help of a legal nurse."

"Robert Malaer of Malaer Legal Nurse Consulting has been a great asset in not only achieving substantial settlements, but also saving our firm time in evaluating cases for medical proof of the claims. His vast experience and education provides him the ability to thoroughly screen, assimilate and evaluate the medical documentation. His reports are inclusive of all trial-ready medical records, making mediations, depositions, and trials much easier. Frankly, Robert Maler's approach is head and shoulders above all others we have used, particularly where the medical records returned to us in a turn-key binder, with the key records individually identified, and pertinent passages clearly marked. I would strongly recommend Malaer Legal Nurse Consulting for any case where medical analysis is warranted. He has proven extremely valuable in every case we have used him on."

"Robert Malaer's work has been invaluable in medical negligence and general liability cases involving complicated damage issues, and his medical knowledge and experience have facilitated my acceptance or rejection of cases. Robert's probing medical research and detailed analysis of medical records and causation defines salient points in each case. His assistance in preparing for written and oral discovery against defendant medical providers is superb. Most important is his competence in helping me understand the medical nuances of each case.
"In addition, Robert has developed Life Care Plans and provided key testimony that has proven invaluable against opposing council. He is an excellent expert witness on the stand that never fails to deliver a professional and well presented testimony. Robert always provides his honest opinion on matters which has directly influenced the direction we have taken with cases. He is devoted to his work and the only regret I have is not having used him sooner."

"Robert Malaer is a proven invaluable consultant to our firm. I am impressed at how quickly he can review a large volume of records and focus in on the key issue that has saved us valuable time and financial resources. You really get the information and documentation needed and not a long rehash of all the medical records relevant or not. His comprehensive reports are professionally written, and he is the only legal nurse consultant who delivers his final report in a consolidated, legal binder with all referenced documented evidence that is ready for trial. Robert Malaer's reports have played an integral role in medical malpractice and personal injury cases for our firm. I highly recommend Robert based on our experience with his work product, and as a bonus, he is a great guy."

"Robert completed a terrific deep-dive review in a complex pediatric brain injury case with thousands of pages of electronic medical records. He drew order from chaos and helped us focus on the critical issues of the case. Even better, he engaged in an extended dialogue after his review as we pushed and tested each issue. He expertly refocused the team on the significant medical issues and prevented the all-to-often rabbit hole distractions. I sincerely appreciate his diligent, expert work, and I will utilize his services for all of my medically-related cases."
