What happens when I ​
​get involved in a case?

​Typically, I am retained by the defense or prosecuting attorney. I can also be appointed as a psychological expert by the court.

​​​It's typical for lawyers to refer a client to me for an evaluation when questions arise regarding emotional and mental status.

​​​Over the last 15 years I have performed 1000's of psychological evaluations for attorneys in California.

​​​​​​As an experienced forensic psychologist, I can assist you as a consultant or as an evaluator.
I am happy to discuss any questions you may have about hiring me as
​your expert witness or as the evaluating forensic psychologist for your case.
