Second Opinion Evaluations: You or your client may request a second opinion on the legal question at hand. Strategic Psychological Services can provide an independent evaluation and opinion. This process does typically involve the review of the initial evaluation in order to speak on any disagreements or discrepancies in conclusions and/or opinions.
Court-Ordered Evaluations: Have you been instructed by the Court or recommended by your attorney to have a psychological evaluation? Strategic Psychological Services offers court-ordered evaluation services for probation, criminal cases, and other situations when there is a question about an individual's mental health or risk of violence, including sexual violence. We will:
Conduct your court-ordered evaluation in a respectful, dignified manner while protecting your privacy as much as possible
Testify in your court proceeding (as necessary) at an additional cost
Conduct evaluations requested by employers or academic institutions regarding incidents which occur at work or school
Case Analysis & Evaluation/Assessment & Peer Review: Your case may benefit from cross-examination preparation consultation services. Strategic Psychological Services can consult with you about the mental health evaluation entered by opposing counsel. This consultation includes a thorough review of the quality of the forensic evaluation and collaborative assistance in cross-examination preparation of the evaluator.
Review of Mental Health Records of the Defendant/Subject and Other File Review: A forensic psychologist can assist in your case involving mental health records. Strategic Psychological Services offers precise, analytical, and exhaustive clinical reviews of mental health records to reveal nuanced information. This subtle information can go unnoticed by someone without specific forensic psychology training.
Trial Consultation:Strategical Psychological Services can assist you in many blended consultant roles depending on your needs for your case. Examples of consultation roles include testifying to general information as a subject matter expert as well as staying privileged in a case to provide consultation to the attorney alone on a variety of issues.
