I, Linda L. Shelton, Ph.D., M.D. am NOT an attorney and I DO NOT draft documents to use in litigation of any kind. I have extensive knowledge of the law due to a hobby of reading U.S. Supreme Court cases for decades and due to extensive pro se litigation in all levels of state and federal court. I am willing to share with anyone my legal documents in my cases that have worked or not worked for me. I am willing, for a fee to be negotiated on an individual basis, to work like a paralegal for people who ask me and for whom I agree to work for the purpose of doing the following services. I am also, for a fee, willing to review, summarize, and organize medical records for attorneys who wish to be better able to decide if there has been medical negligence as shown in a medical record. I have worked as a consultant for malpractice attorneys in the past. I have also testified in court as an expert witness, most notably in a case against Graco resulting in 15 deaths of infants due to a design flaw in a swinging cradle – in the areas of neonatology, pediatrics, epidemiology, physiology, pathology, and physics. I have testified as a fact witness in child abuse cases and in malpractice cases. I have a Ph.D degree in experimental pathology and some rudimentary knowledge of forensic pathology. I will NOT serve as an expert witness at the present time.:
1 – Legal research, I will research a topic that you give me and provide to you a review of the statutes, codes, rules, and case law with summaries and citations. As I do not have complete access to on line legal research sites due to lack of funds, I cannot guarantee that my summaries will be completely up to date or useful to you in any way. You would use the results of my research at your own peril in your own cases under your own direction. You would be legally responsible in your case(s) to check the references and sumaries I provide to you for accuracy. I will guarantee NOTHING.
2 – I will give you copies of my documents used in litigation for a fee (2 times the copying + handling cost).
3 – I will give you blank copies of blank fill in the blank forms that I find on the Clerk’s or Court’s web sites along with the Court’s intructions for filling them in (2 times the copying + handling cost).
4 – Other research services to be negotiated on an individual basis.
5 – I will review medical records for attorneys in order to summarize the record and make them understandable to the attorney. I will provide appropriate references as needed. I will give my opinion to you as to whether there is evidence of medical services provided outside the standard of medical care for the specialty. I do not guarantee any results or the accuracy of my opinion. Fees negotiated on an individual basis. I have extensive experience or knowledge in neonatology, pediatrics (Board-Certified in recent past, but have not renewed my certification), pathology, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, and dermatology).
