Quickie Consult 95

From the Desk of Dr. Mark Studin
Academy of Chiropractic
Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very 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 more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

"CV's - Living Documents"

CV’s are a living document meaning they get updated and changed in order to reflect your current credentials. Once a credential is added to your CV, it remains with you for life unless you choose to remove it for any reason. As credentials reflect your level of expertise, a subject we have discussed frequently in previous consultations, updating your CV is crucial in certifying your new areas of expertise to the legal community.


Updating your CV is also another way of communicating with the lawyers, as they will need your updated CV in order to argue settlement for a case. Each time a new credential is added, be sure to send a copy either via mail or e-mail to the lawyer for their files. This will keep you in their face in an ethical manner, without begging and pleading. It will also give them ammunition to use if needed in a case.


I just finished reviewing the 6th updated CV for Dr. Jason Davis in Florida, which inspired me to write this consultation. Over the last 6 months, he has taken numerous relevant courses and has perhaps one of the best CV’s in the nation for working in the medical-legal arena. He has paid the price in time and his practice is reflecting his efforts. In fact, in a conversation with him a minute ago, he informed me that he just received a referral from a lawyer who was referred to him by another lawyer. They refer not only to you, but based upon your reputation and credentials, to each other. He is living proof!
