WHAT DO FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGISTS DO?
An expert witness is qualified by their specialized knowledge, skill, experience, training and/or education to testify in the form of an opinion. Psychologists testify as experts in a wide variety of circumstances. These psychologists are engaged in Forensic Psychology. According to the American Board of Forensic Psychology (ABFP), the definition of forensic psychology "is the application of the science and profession of psychology to questions and issues relating to law and the legal system."
We are practicing psychologists with an understanding of the legal system, data as legal evidence, ethics in the context of legal systems, the principles and methods of forensic mental-health assessment and more.

Less Surprises During Expert Witness Testimony
We prepare our reports in anticipation of testimony. Therefore, we rest our opinions upon generally accepted, scientific, reliable and valid forensic psychological evaluation methods.
