James Scott Farrin attorney and registered nurse Naa Atsoi Adu-Antoh spoke at the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), annual Magic Mountain conference on “What’s Hidden in Those Medical Records?”
James S. Farrin, president of the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin said, “We are very fortunate to have on staff a skilled attorney who is a trained nurse – and trained at Johns Hopkins. Naa’s unique medical education and training has been instrumental in helping us better serve clients, and we are delighted that others in the legal community had an opportunity to share in her expertise.”
Adu-Antoh spoke Friday, October 14th at the Fall Conference for Paralegals Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminar. The four-day weekend event for attorneys and paralegals was held at the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville.
Adu-Antoh, an attorney and registered nurse who graduated from the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, heads James Scott Farrin’s medical review team, which provides the firm added value by offering the unique perspective of a highly-trained and experienced medical professional who reviews and analyzes clients’ medical issues within the context of their legal cases.
“Medical records are the evidence we use to illustrate the significance of our clients' injuries. The possible success of our cases sometimes lies hidden in these medical records. You’d be surprised how often we find that “needle in the haystack,” which is sometimes what’s needed to try to help make our client’s case. It’s important to evaluate the facts, but also read between the lines to piece your case together for the good of the client,” Adu-Antoh said.
She has been a member of the NCAJ for six years and a regular speaker at CLE seminars.
The North Carolina Advocates for Justice is a nonpartisan association of legal professionals dedicated to protecting people’s rights through community, education, and advocacy for over 50 years.
