From the beginning….
Godoy Medical Forensics Inc, started in 2009 as University Park Legal Nurse Consulting. Tara Godoy found herself in a position in which she needed a new job, and like many in that position, she decided to start a business. UPLNC, as it was informally called, started as a single nurse offering consulting services to civil med mal and PI attorneys. When a criminal case literally dropped in her lap (you can read that story here), Tara fell in love with criminal casework and started marketing to criminal attorneys. From then until now, Tara has grown the business to what it is today through presentations, exhibitors booths, social media and, most importantly, great work product leading to referrals…
December 20th, 2013 marked a new era for UPLNC. We changed our name to Godoy Medical Forensics, Inc. to reflect the expansive services that we offer. We were no longer limited to legal nurse consulting services. Today we offer a wide range of medico-legal consulting services to both criminal and civil attorneys. We have Registered Nurses and Physicians to review, analyze, consult and testify on cases. We have 5 years of experience that allows us to offer superior support to our clients. Our pride in our work comes through in the quality of our work product and the professionalism of our nurses and doctors. When you work with us, your life gets easier and your case is more efficiently and comprehensively developed.
As of 2018 we have almost a decade of experience and we work with both the prosecution and the defense on all cases involving medicine or trauma. For our civil clients, we work primarily on the plaintiff side. Working with Tara on cases are 4 Physician contractors and 7 Registered Nurse contractors. For support we have a full time Project Manager and a part time office assistant. Two of our nurse contractors are offering testimony on either coast, and three of our nurses specialize in civil work. We have worked with public defenders, prosecutors and private attorneys from Hawaii to Florida, Montana to Texas. Through all this, we build personal relationships with our clients and strive to go beyond their expectations in professionalism and credibility. We can’t wait to keep growing and making a difference!
