Forensic Services

Within all of our specialty programs, we provide an array of forensic services including expert witness and consultation; and evaluations, assessments, and reports for criminal, family, dependency, and juvenile court. When there is a legal question of risk, capacity, or transparency, we work collaboratively with judges, attorneys, juvenile or adult probation, mediators, custody evaluators, social services, and Child Protective Services as needed to provide assessments, evaluations, and psychological testing, evidence-based protocols, opinions, and recommendations that best address the concerns of the professional referring party.
