Tom’s Tech Tip: Same Tickets – Different Shows

Over the Christmas holiday Vickie and I attended the Broadway show “No Man’s Land” starring two of my favorite actors – Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart.

Certified Legal Nurse Consultants: Be Wary of Premature Opinions

My Most Memorable CLNC® Case

My Most Memorable CLNC® Case: First Time Testifying and the Jury Smiled on Our Case

My most memorable case occurred when I testified for the very first time. I had been a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant for about a year. The case was a will contest.

About 72 hours prior to her death, the son (the client’s brother) had the will altered so that he would inherit most of the estate. The changes to the will were made by an attorney. The son then took the will to the facility and had his mother sign it with a notary (a friend of his) present and another witness (his sister-in-law). The estate was worth around $1,000,000.00.
