A Focused Practice

We are not all things to all people. We must decline some opportunities so that we can provide an excellent product to those we do serve. We assist with:

Criminal Matters

  • Competency to Proceed

Civil Matters

  • Psychiatric Disability

  • Civil Capacities

Evaluations Based in Science

As few as 58.4% of Psychologists use any structured assessment tools in forensic evaluations.* Our standard operating procedure includes reliable use of forensic assessment instruments, ensuring that our evaluations address the functional legal capacities in a valid, reliable, and defensible manner. Moreover, our evaluations specifically focus on the germane legal questions assisting attorneys, judges, and juries with their determinations.

Rest Assured

Experience predicts confidence, not competence. To assure that our confidence is well-placed, we approach all engagements with the application of reliable principles and methods. From this, we can clearly communicate:

  • what is known (what are the facts we can offer),

  • how do we know (what methods were employed and their scientific under-pinnings), and

  • how much confidence can be placed in that knowledge (what are the known error rates of the methods used).
