From the beginning….

Godoy Medical Forensics Inc, started in 2009 when Tara, CEO of Godoy Medical Forensics found herself in a position in which she needed a new job, and like many in that position, she decided to start a business. She started as a single nurse offering consulting services to civil med mal and PI attorneys. However, when a criminal case literally dropped in her lap (you can read that story here), Tara fell in love with criminal casework and started working with criminal attorneys. Since then, 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…


By 2013, Godoy Medical Forensics, Inc. was no longer limited to legal nurse consulting services. We were offering a wide range of medico-legal consulting services to both criminal and civil attorneys. We had Registered Nurses and Physicians to review, analyze, consult and testify on cases. We had 5 years of experience that allowed 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.

And Now…

As of 2021 we have over a decade of experience and we work with both the prosecution and the defense on all types of criminal cases that involve medical records or traumatic injuries.

For our civil clients, we provide consulting and expert testimony for both plaintiff and defense. We have started venturing into the world of Family Law and have testified in cases involving allegations of child or spousal abuse.

Currently, we have ~15 nurses located all over the nation, three MD’s, a forensic toxicologist and five office staff members to support the experts in managing the administrative side of their caseload. The pandemic turned us virtual, and Tara offers webinars regularly for national and local organizations. The company continues to grow and thrive, necessitating more experts in more locations. It seems we are constantly recruiting and hiring!

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!
