Shoaf & Associates, Inc.

Legal Nurse Consultants


"I have been practicing law for 30 years. In 1992, I began focusing my practice on plaintiffs’ medical negligence litigation. That year, through a series of lucky coincidences, I met Lorraine Shoaf. Since that time, she has assisted myself and the firm with which I associate on probably 400 potential medical malpractice cases. She has been invaluable in locating and vetting potential expert witnesses, constructing timelines, reviewing medical records and being a friend and sounding board. Her connections in the medical community nationwide are unparalleled. She is not only bright but her medical knowledge and research skills have paved the way for our success in numerous cases. She has also kept us from making potentially disastrous and costly mistakes. Her expertise has greatly enhanced our ability to separate the good from the not-so-good cases and make informed decisions regarding how and when to pursue cases and refine issues for trial. I have and continue to recommend Lorraine to those in the legal profession who maintain high standards of professionalism and courage in pursuit of these very complex and interesting cases. If you practice in this very specialized area of the law, you know how difficult these cases are. Lorraine has, over the years, made my work much more enjoyable and as stress free as such cases can be. I highly recommend her."
