Forensic and Neuropsychological Evaluations for Adolescents and Adults

Psychological Expertise for Legal Decision Makers

Practice Areas

Forensic psychology involves applying psychological expertise within the legal system. We answer referral questions with credible data and supporting evidence. We provide a forensic opinion to inform legal arguments and judicial decision-making but do not impede upon answering the ultimate legal question. Neuropsychology involves assessing how brain injuries or brain disorders impact someone’s daily life. In these evaluations, we provide a clinical opinion about diagnostic clarification, analysis of cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and treatment recommendations to improve one’s overall well-being. Our police and public safety work focuses on suitability for hire and fitness for duty.
