Vocational Counseling Services
Vocational Rehabilitation is a process that assists individuals with disabilities in achieving employment or in enhancing their ability to function independently and in the community. After a thorough personal history and review of relevant records, vocational rehabilitation may include an evaluation of the individual's skills, interests, and needs to find an appropriate occupational area to be pursued.

Case Management
Case Management involves working closely with an individual with a disability to monitor performance and assure that goods and services outlined in a life care plan, or physician's order, are implemented in a cost effective manner. Case management promotes effective cost containment while assuring the individual's recovery to their best rehabilitation potential.

Wage Loss Analysis
Wage Loss Analysis is used when an injury results in physical, cognitive or psychological impairment that prevents the individual from achieving and enjoying their pre-injury level of earnings. The Wage Loss Analysis determines and quantifies whether or not an injury has impacted the individual's ability to perform work related activities. A comparison is then made between the pre-incident earnings capacity and the post-incident earnings capacity.

Rehabilitation Counseling Services
Rehabilitation Counseling is dedicated to helping individuals with physical and mental (including developmental and adventitious brain injuries) and psychiatric disabilities achieve productive and independent lives. A thorough personal history, review of relevant records and testing may be incorporated to establish a feasible guideline to the individual's future life potential after a life-changing event.

Life Care Planning
Life Care Planning is accomplished by examining personal history and reviewing relevant records to  determine the future timing and cost of equipment, maintenance, supplies, medical services, and habitation needs that will be reasonably certain to be required in the future as a result of a physical, psychological or psychiatric impairment. Accurate and detailed information about the effect of an impairment and how it will affect the injured person's future is presented by decade of life expectancy.

Comparative Analysis
The Comparative Analysis offers information to satisfy the "necessity" criteria as expressed in CACI instructions 3903 a, c and d regarding future care costs. By approaching the appropriateness from a "necessity" point of view, available funding may be more effectively utilized to obtain services, supplies, and equipment. With the incorporation of public social service funding sources, the maximum effective use of available resources can be realized.

Similarly, the Comparative Analysis can also be applied to vocational plans. By understanding the person’s educational and vocational background, as well as their capacities available after an injury, an analysis can be prepared to suggest appropriate feasible occupations the person may consider. Occupations suggested by another’s vocational plan are evaluated to assure that they reflect the restrictions imposed by the physician, the known limitations the person may have, accommodations that may be available to assist the person to become employed, the transferable skills available, to assure that the occupations with the greatest compensation potential (to reduce the future wage loss to zero if possible) are suggested.

Expert Witness Testimony
Qualified Expert Witness Testimony has been offered throughout California regarding rehabilitation and vocational issues. Preparation for anticipated analogous testimony has been completed in other jurisdictions including Ohio, Indiana, Texas, Florida, Alaska, Missouri, and Nevada.

Timelines are prepared using data revealed in the case documents. The data elements are arranged chronologically, that provides an overview of potentially related events. Significant periods of interest can be expanded or "blown up" to include additional data points in a particular period of time. Timelines allow the user to view pre-incident, concurrent, and post-incident events relative to each other’s occurrence.
