Our Practice

We are a boutique physician-led consulting practice consisting of certified life care planners (CLCPs) and vocational rehabilitation specialists (CRCs). We produce evidence-based and objective Life Care Plans and Vocational Evaluations for cases involving matters such as traumatic brain injury, birth injury, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, amputations, orthopedic injuries, end-stage renal disease, transplant medicine, and other complex matters. 

Our multi-disciplinary team includes professionals in such fields as pediatrics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, prosthetics, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, health policy, economics, and data analysis. Our board-certified physicians cross-trained as certified life care planners (CLCP), rehabilitation counselors (CRC) and/or epidemiologists. With physician leadership, Empirical Planners offers exceptional academic and clinical experience, the ability to analyze complex information relevant to Life Care Plans and Vocational Evaluations, and qualifications to integrate evidence-based medicine in the generation of life expectancy.

Our diverse client base, spanning over 20 years, includes the nation’s largest insurance companies, government agencies, and law firms. We provide services across the United States and internationally.

Practice Standards: We do not advertise. Growth of our practice over the past 20 years has been entirely through word-of-mouth. We accept referrals from both plaintiff and defense. Our intake process is genuine and forthcoming: if a Life Care Plan or Vocational Evaluation is not the appropriate next step for a case, we may recommend a brief review, a “pause” until more information is available, or a limited research analysis.
