Psychological evaluations are commonly used as part of the legal process. Whether evaluating the psychological impact of injuries, determining an individual’s competence to make important decisions, appealing a decision/ruling by an administrative body, or evaluating mitigating factors in criminal sentencing, the evaluation by a Board Certified Clinical/Neuropsychologist can have major implications in the outcome of forensic matters.
