Curriculum Vitae

By Stephen M. Raffle, M.D.

Lawyers win cases. And I have worked with a number of them. Doctors do not “win” cases, but their testimony can provide useful factual evidence for the trier of fact (e.g. judge or jury) to assist him/her/them in understanding psychiatric matters which the ordinary person does not know.

I have been told many times that after trials in which I have testified, jurors (if they first approach the attorney) have said, on questioning, that my testimony enabled them to understand the mental aspect of the case and assisted them to reach the conclusions they reached. I am pleased with the feedback from jurors and judges that my testimony is logical and easy to understand and follow, and that my conclusions make sense to them. In a recent case, several jurors recalled my testimony specifically and felt it contributed to their verdict which was favorably consistent with my opinion.
