Speech Pathology

Expert Witness Profile

I have been a speech-language pathologist for over 45 years and was a university professor for 35 years. I taught courses in anatomy and physiology, neurology and neuropathology, motor speech disorders, swallowing disorders, voice disorders, cleft lip and palate, and counseling skills for speech-language pathologists. Upon retirement, I was honored with the designation Professor Emeritus. I am the author of five textbooks and four assessment and therapy materials. I have made over 140 convention and conference presentations and conducted seminars and workshop on various topics throughout the U.S. and in several foreign countries. I have worked many summers in acute, subacute, and convalescent hospitals, and have maintained a private practice for almost 40 years working with children and adults of all ages and a great variety of speech, language, cognitive, and swallow disorders. I have been an expert witness in 25 cases on an almost equal number of plaintiff and defense sides. I have been in numerous depositions and have testified in both court hearings and court trials. I have received specific training at seminars and workshops provided by attorneys and judges on IMEs and court testifying. I handle myself well under both examination and cross-examination. Because I am retired from full-time university teaching, I am available year-round for work and am willing to travel to other states.
