Clinicians with trial experience can assist Courts and juries in making determinations of competency to stand trial, criminal responsibility, and issues of intent and diminished capacity.
Our comprehensive assessments in these matters include (as-needed) clinical interviews, corroborating data, review of records and psychological testing. Each assessment ends with recommendations and/or conclusions which are clearly linked to findings via a point-by-point forensic rationale.
Average turn-around time from the conclusion of the assessment to receipt-of-report is ten days.
We assess both adults and juveniles.
We will travel to the client in cases of demonstrated need.
We have participated in a variety of criminal proceedings, many of them murder trials. We are equipped to handle assessments in criminal cases of all types, from shoplifting to murder.
