A History of Success

Alexan (formerly J.L. Ferguson & Associates, Inc.) was founded in 1993 by Janice Ferguson. A dedicated and highly principled legal nurse consultant, Janice was renowned for helping clients throughout the U.S. solve the complex challenges of thousands of cases. In 2009, Nancy Breedlove, a LNC with years of experience consulting for a law firm in New Orleans, Louisiana, joined Janice. Together, they operated the premiere legal nurse consulting firm in the country, providing services, such as:

  • Developing case projects
  • Acquiring and reviewing medical literature
  • Determining necessary assessment data
  • Performing searches, interviews and procurement of experts
  • Preparing database protocols for case management
  • Assisting in the preparation of case-specific reports
  • Evaluating and assessing complicated medical malpractice issues

In 2014, after a 25-year career in legal nurse consulting, Janice retired, and Nancy acquired the firm and renamed it Alexan Legal Nurse Consultants. Nancy's leadership, direction and continued focus on providing superior legal nurse consulting services to clients throughout the U.S. has resulted in considerable growth for Alexan. Today, Alexan’s experienced and dedicated team of legal nurse consultants offer clients insights and expertise from a variety of clinical backgrounds.
