As one of the few nurse attorneys in the nation, Amber Zupancic-Albin, JD, BSN, RN is uniquely qualified to prepare healthcare provider witnesses for testimony, as well as provide other trial consulting services for medical malpractice cases.
As a former hospital nurse, Amber has a unique capability to guide health care providers through what can feel like a traumatic and terrifying event - testifying. Even Amber has been deposed as an RN, so she appreciates the challenge of being in the "hot seat." With her work history in the healthcare field, Amber can quickly establish a rapport with providers and instinctively support their needs. At the same time, Amber utilizes her knowledge as a litigator to tailor the preparation in order to support the case theory.
JURY SELECTION/VOIR DIRE
Amber can assist counsel by identifying a favorable juror profile and developing targeted voir dire questions to maximize preemptory challenges and systematically eliminate an unfavorable jury pool. Amber can attend trial in order to document juror responses and observe the jury pool, allowing counsel to focus on the task at hand.
Amber is skilled at quickly identifying case strengths and weaknesses can and help strategize with counsel on developing a successful and persuasive theory. Amber has tried several of her own cases, so she is familiar with each phase of trial, evidentiary issues, motion practice and the importance of "telling the story" in a way that a juror understands.
I had the pleasure of working with Amber. Amber's background as a Registered Nurse, her work ethic, and her demeanor are huge assets for clients and colleagues faced with legal issues connected to the health care industry.
