Now accepting new reviews/consulting cases with initial review of materials to take place in JULY/AUGUST 2022, and reports due in late July or later.

Inquiries are reviewed once per week on Tuesdays, and if there are no conflicts, we’ll email you a link to set up an initial call, during which you and Dr. Melinek can determine if she’s the right expert for your case.

Please note: Due to the need to first complete a conflicts check, WE DO NOT ACCEPT NEW CASE INQUIRIES OVER THE PHONE.

PRIVATE AUTOPSIES: Dr. Melinek is NOT AVAILABLE to perform any first or second autopsies in the U.S. at this time.

FOR PRESS/INTERVIEW INQUIRIES ONLY: To arrange for an interview with Dr. Melinek, or for her reaction to or commentary on breaking news items, contact Catherine Ehr at
