Attorney Feedback

“In 17 years experience I have never been so fortunate to retain the perfect expert witness!  You will benefit your self and your case with the retention of  Dr. Karlovsky.  He is thorough, gets to the bottom line quickly and independently.  More importantly he is a fundamental asset for the evaluation of a case and preparation for trial.  I would retain Dr. Karlovsky 10 out of 10 times for any type of urological issue.”

“I represented an OB/GYN who had extensive experience in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Karlovsky testified for my client at trial. He was able to explain to the jury in a simple and understandable manner, complicated issues concerning the anatomy, the procedures my client performed and why the patient’s complication was caused by another physician’s care. We obtained a verdict in favor of my client.”

“Dr. Karlovsky is a full service expert. He’s very bright and organized, with an uncanny ability to hone in on the heart of the issue he’s analyzing.  He’s professional in his dealings and diligent with his work product.  I found him to be very helpful as a teacher, and also someone who can articulate and defend his opinions well in deposition.”

“Dr. Karlovsky will know your file backwards and forwards and works as hard as any expert I have known as a trial lawyer with 25 years of experience. He is sharp and can take complex issues and communicate them to jurors in an easy to understand yet interesting manner. He helped me get justice for my client with an almost $2 million verdict.”

Dr. Karlovsky communicated clearly and was a credible and knowledgeable asset throughout the litigation. He also wrote an excellent report which was instrumental in reaching a fair resolution in the case. We would not hesitate to use or recommend Dr. Karlovsky in the future.”

“Dr. Karlovsky performed a detailed review of medical records and relevant depositions, did an in depth analysis, clearly outlined the time line, highlighted the significant points, explained the applicable medical standards, stated his opinion, and supported the opinion with references to the record and depositions, all in a clear and compelling manner.”

-M.R., New York City
(Plaintiff Counsel)

“We had a very complex case with  voluminous medical records that covered many years of surgery and treatment.  We had a deadline that opposing counsel refused to extend.  Dr. Karlovsky analyzed the records in a week and prepared a very logical, thorough and readable report.  The quality of his work and his cooperation were exceptional.”
