Autopsies often reveal issues that were not suspected during life and provide the ultimate evaluation of the quality of medical care.
Our main goal is to provide a valuable service to the bereaved families. Our autopsy reports provide a detailed insight into the cause of death and contributing factors.
The most important result of the autopsy and anatomical pathology review is closure and peace of mind. In some cases, the autopsy findings provide solid evidence for legal proceedings.
Contact us and provide a brief description of your case. A telephone consultation will be necessary to determine if we can provide assistance. If you decide that our expertise and resources might benefit your case, we will discuss costs involved and schedule the autopsy.

Autopsy reports and pathology expert testimony is always a critical part of any suit.
Each case is meticulously documented with test results, microscopic reviews and autopsy photos. Collected specimens are stored for any additional research for the duration of the litigation.
Examination focused on a specified area or organ, e.g brain, is sometimes sufficient for clinically well documented and undisputable cases.
May be required if an autopsy had not been conducted and there are unanswered questions.
The study of the microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues done by a pathologist, aka "micro", is always included in all of our evaluations and reports.
Post-mortem study of the brain is critical for any death investigation. Few autopsies of natural death cases can be conclusive without it. Read more
With recent advances in genetics the data obtained during an autopsy evaluation could be very valuable for the family.
Most evaluations can be done without toxicology lab work (which is expensive, and often inconclusive). In some cases, however, these tests are required.
We provide conclusive evidence on all cancers related to exposure to any known toxic and life-threatening materials.
For families, the autopsy has both tangible and psychological benefits. Uncertainty regarding the cause of an individual's death can delay payment of insurance benefits, or execution of the will.
