Dr. Plotnick has testified extensively in the courts of a number of states with respect to the effects of alcohol, alone or in combination with drugs of abuse and the prediction of the levels of alcohol in blood and breath after the ingestion of alcoholic beverages. He has also evaluated and interpreted the results of urine drug testing both for employers and employees and for probationers in probation violation proceedings.

Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of chemicals (including drugs, insecticides, and heavy metals) upon living things. Dr. Plotnick's expertise extends into most of these areas. Telephone or email inquiries about specific cases are welcomed.
