Testimonials

We consider what our customers have to say about us to be the gold standard of indicators on how we are doing:

We have been working with Mindset for over a year as a partner in our TBI CHEQ Program. The knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail combined with their willingness to work directly with our attorneys and help them with their cases has not only kept our attorneys happy and productive, but also keeps us very informed and well cared for.

We were so happy to report that our client had a life-changing outcome as a result of our work with MINDSET's Case Consulting practice. We could not have arrived at a plea without their hard work. We are incredibly grateful for their dedication to our case and to the tough work that had to be done. We are all celebrating!

Having worked in the mTBI space for ten years and vetting many companies and tools, I feel confident in saying, there is no better screening tool for attorneys than TBI CHEQ. It is THE ANSWER they have been waiting for and wanting to identify clients within their caseload who may have a mild to moderate brain injury. Hands down, the best tool to identify this is TBI CHEQ!
