...researcher at the proposal or analysis stage:
Whether it's advice you need in preparing the methodology parts of a research proposal, or help in actually getting the data ready to analyze and conducting the analyses, our statistical consultants have the extensive experience in all of these activities that is required in order to save you a lot of frustration and help ensure that you meet your deadlines.
Many legal cases hinge on which side can best support its arguments with data. Dr. Kane is experienced in examining data from every angle that could potentially support the arguments of a client, defending his analyses from attack by the opposing side's experts, and finding any weaknesses that may exist in the analytical results offered by the opposing side's experts. Dr. Kane is particularly experienced in enacting this role in the context of litigation over employment discrimination and Human Resource Management issues, but he can extend these same capabilities to virtually any other case in which data is available to be analyzed in support of a client's position.
Scheduling Your Work
It is usually possible to provide you with a pretty good estimate of when your work done can be completed. In emergencies it is often possible to shuffle other work around to meet your needs, but this can't be guaranteed to be possible at all times. Alternatively, we maintain a network of other statistical consultants who can potentially contribute their efforts in urgent situations.
Integrity: our Most Valuable asset
Our statistical consultants will never knowingly perform an analysis incorrectly or give you advice they are not sure of. If we make an error, we will fix it without cost to you.
If we are unable or unequipped to perform some analysis, we will tell you so right away. In such a case we will either find out how to do it, give you the option of paying for the purchase of any requisite specialized software, call in another expert, or tell you that you should find someone else.
Our statistical consultants will do everything within their power to meet any firm deadline that was mutually agreed to. If we miss a deadline without a provable legitimate excuse, you pay nothing. The only legitimate excuses for missing a deadline are sickness, uncontrollable acts of nature (e.g., equipment failure, power outages), and changes in your requirements. Even in these cases we would enlist associated statistical consultants to get your work done if at all possible. If it can be foreseen that we are not going to able to meet a deadline, we will let you know as soon as possible in advance.
You will only be charged for the time we actually spend working on your project, measured in 15-minute increments. We will only charge you for expenses if they are incurred as a direct and exclusive result of working on your project.
We will protect the privacy and confidentiality of any data you entrust to us, and of the results of our analyses of your data, within the limits of the applicable law. We will destroy all copies of your data in our possession upon notification from you that we should do so.
Finally, remember this: Your satisfaction with our consulting services is our #1 priority!
