About Deborah Armstrong
I am a jack of all trades, master of some. I really enjoy using my medical knowledge and experience to perform case reviews and give cogent advice. More than once I have added value to cases by knowing what should have been done and wasn't (not meeting the standard of care).
I have also discovered that an incorrect medication was prescribed at a critical time, which led to a bad outcome. I pride myself in being able to make sense of medical charts in the setting of the legal facts.
I am comfortable reading all forms of medical charts- nursing notes, operative notes, consults, hospital notes, outpatient office notes, reports of x-rays, MRIs and CT scans.
For the past 11 years I have been an independent adjunct advisor for the Day Law Firm in Forest, Virginia, working on medical malpractice cases as well as in an Urgent Care practice.

Dr. Armstrong's evaluation of the materials provided greatly assisted me in my own evaluation of the case, and in helping my client understand the pitfalls of proceeding with a medical malpractice matter.
Dr. Armstrong is amazing! Dr. Armstrong was able to advise us on several of our medical malpractice cases. She is able to determine if medical malpractice has occurred, and when it has, she is able to certify the case or advise how we need to proceed. Being both a physician and an attorney made her an invaluable member of our team. She has added great value to our cases.
I highly recommend Dr. Deborah Armstrong for medical expert witness reviews. Dr. Armstrong is thorough, well-prepared, and focuses on the key issues in any case. She is uniquely qualified to offer insight into the medical care at issue, as well as the evidentiary challenges and requirements for the case. Dr. Armstrong sets forth the main strengths and weaknesses and how best to showcase (or attack) them.
