FORENSIC & POLICE/PUBLIC SAFETY EVALUATIONS

We conduct empirically-grounded forensic psychological evaluations for courts, private attorneys, public defenders, prosecutors, and employers in California, Georgia, and Tennessee. We additionally provide attorney consultations, and expert witness testimony. 

Forensic evaluations performed  include psychological assessments of plaintiffs in civil matters, juveniles, and defendants in criminal matters.

Our law enforcement and public safety pre-employment screening evaluations assist employers in determining if candidates meet P.O.S.T. established psychological suitability standards. Our Fitness for Duty Evaluations assist in the determination of the psychological fitness of officers when there are questions about one’s ability to safely or effectively perform their assigned job functions and duties.
