Preamble: many of these issues I bring are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice along with more family time. 

“Market Research”


After meeting with a group of lawyers yesterday and spending 7 continual hours in a focus group this group of attorneys, I have received confirmation for what lawyers in 20 other states have shared with me. Their immediate and direct feedback and mandate was not based on Colossus algorithms or reporting suggestions, it was based on credentials. According to this group of what I would consider very experienced attorneys, doctors’ credentials supersede anything else.

I know that in the past I’ve always considered the MRI Spine Interpretation course to be the minimum in your credentials. On the home page of the PI Program website, just above the consultations, I listed the 8 courses that I believe are both integral and critical for both your knowledge base and your credentials to succeed at the highest level in the personal injury arena. However, after yesterday’s meeting, the attorneys were emphatic that the Spinal Biomechanical Engineering course was paramount and equally important as the MRI Spine Interpretation course.

When I explained to the attorneys what those course credentials meant and the association with the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences along with chiropractic academia, the lawyers started citing case law as to why those credentials are imperative and central to the majority of cases they lose because they do not have qualified experts to support their clients medical-legal needs.

Therefore, based purely on market research, the new non-negotiable course along with the MRI course is Spinal Biomechaincal Engineering.
