Expertise

In addition to a law degree, I have a master's degree in bioethics (medical and research ethics) and a doctorate of philosophy involving comparative medical, legal and business ethics. I am an Adjunct Professor at Midwestern University teaching graduate medical and research ethics.

I can answer questions dealing with general ethics principles, including medical ethics, research ethics and bioethics. Research ethics is predicated on the Nuremberg Code, Declaration of Helsinki and the Belmont Report.

I am not a moralist and do not interject subjective values such as what is morally right and wrong. Also, I do not give legal advice over the internet.
