Nurse consultant helps attorneys win cases


Rich & Associates Legal Nurse Consulting has launched Lake Stevens’ first independent legal nurse consulting practice to help attorneys win medical-related cases.

Founded by Certified Legal Nurse Consultant® Brittany Rich, RN, BAN, CLNC, Rich & Associates provides services designed to save attorneys time and money.“The first service most attorneys request is organizing and interpreting the huge quantity of medical records involved in a medical-related case,” says Rich, a former staff nurse at Providence Regional Medical Center. “A Certified Legal Nurse Consultant® can do this efficiently and is much more cost effective than an MD.”

Rich & Associates also screens cases for merit, locates expert witnesses and assists the attorney with discovery and trial preparation. “My 10 years of healthcare experience, six of those specifically in nursing, have given me an understanding of the healthcare system that many attorneys find beneficial,” Rich explains. “This inside knowledge, combined with my CLNC® training, allows me to tailor my services to many types of cases, from personal injury to medical malpractice to criminal cases.” Rich also has access to a nationwide network of healthcare colleagues who can provide additional expertise often needed in today’s complex medical litigation.

With an office in Lake Stevens, Rich works with attorneys throughout the Northwest. Rich obtained her CLNC® Certification in October 2012 and is a member of the National Alliance of Certified Legal Nurse Consultants.
