Forensic and Evaluative Services
Any evaluation is only as good as the information it contains. Whether you are an attorney advocating for your client, or a or a firm representing an insurance company, you need reliable information to make essential decisions.
Because of their special status as persons qualified as experts to the court, forensic psychologists have an obligation to maintain current knowledge of scientific, professional and legal developments within their area of claimed competence. They are obligated also to use that knowledge, consistent with accepted clinical and scientific standards, in selecting data collection methods and procedures for an evaluation or empirical investigation.
This means that you receive the empirically based information you need to make the difficult decisions, support your position, or understand an individual’s needs.
