“I have had the pleasure of retaining the services of Sheryl Dobson-Wainwright and her team for the several years. I have a personal injury practice that runs the full scope of injured clients from minor to catastrophic and thus I have relied upon Nurse Dobson’s expertise in the preparation of life care plans that have been used to settle numerous claims against large insurance companies. Also, I have found Nurse Dobson to be an excellent trial and deposition witness as she is always very prepared and even charming on the stand. I highly recommend her services to anyone in a similar practice as mine.”

“My law firm and I have had the pleasure of working with Sheryl Dobson-Wainwright for approximately three years. We have hired Ms. Wainwright and her company on multiple occasions for medical legal consulting including life care planning services and medical case management for injured clients. We have continued to retain Ms. Wainwright as an expert witness in our cases because she is highly intelligent, detail oriented, and remains calm under pressure.
Ms. Wainwright understands medicine and medical complications far beyond her experience or training as a registered nurse. While she does not purport to be an expert in every area of medicine, she has a good understanding of even the most unique medical conditions. We also value Ms. Wainwright for her creativeness and attention to detail. She will often make suggestions or have ideas for a patient that not only improves our position in a case, but secures the best future care for an injured person. Ms. Wainwright is reliable. She promptly responds to all of our requests and politely reminds us when we have neglected to ask her to perform a task that is important to the case.
I am also highly impressed with Ms. Wainwright’s abilities under pressure. As a medical legal expert, Ms. Wainwright is frequently required to appear for depositions where she is cross examined by opposing counsel. Despite opposing counsel’s years of experience in breaking down expert witnesses, Ms. Wainwright is almost always able to provide calm and intelligent explanations for their questions. She is able to anticipate experienced legal counsel’s strategies and offer honest answers to prevent her testimony from being twisted or confused.
Finally, on a more personal note, Ms. Wainwright is more than an expert witness. She is fun, funny, and friendly. She has a fun personality that makes her very likable and approachable. She is loved and respected by the most simple or lowly of injured patients, but also demands the respect of experienced trial attorneys.”
John Macfarlane, ESQ.

Sheryl is very personable and likable and has had a wonderful working relationship with clients, staff, health care providers and other professionals. Our clients always report positive interactions with Sheryl following her in-home visits.
