What is Forensic Psychology? 
Forensic Psychology is the interface between psychology and legal issues, often for the purpose of offering expert testimony in a courtroom.  In civil and criminal cases, forensic psychologists may evaluate individuals to determine questions such as competency to stand trial, relationship of a mental disorder to an accident or crime, and potential for future dangerous behavior.
 With more than 8 years of experience working with Federal inmates at the Department of Justice, our staff are experts in the field of treatment issues of forensic populations and offers a variety of services to attorneys as well as other legal and criminal justice professionals.
