Singleton, 294 Ga.

Currently, he serves on the Board for the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Section of the Atlanta Bar Association. Rob is also a member of Lawyers Club of Atlanta.
The idea for IME Preparation, Inc. was born out of Rob’s recognition and frustration with the mistakes made by clients attending IME’s. As such, Rob wished to create a means to provide both the legal and medical knowledge to his clients that would ensure that they could achieve the best result possible from their IME. Moreover, Rob wanted a means to prepare his clients for the tricks that IME physicians use to give them ammunition to opine that the patient is engaging in symptom magnification, malingering, secondary gain, etc. Rob is hopeful that this revolutionary method of preparing clients for their IME’s will allow plaintiffs and claimants to come to their IME armed with the knowledge that will help them avoid pitfalls and receive fair treatment from the physicians utilized by the insurance carriers.
