Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology – What We Do

Forensic Psychiatric Associates Medical Corporation (fpamed) is a group of psychiatric and psychological experts providing assistance to defense and plaintiff attorneys around the country. Our consultation, reports and testimony aim to illuminate the mental health issues in legal matters. We consult in both civil and criminal matters and to both sides of the bar.

Our primary skill is explaining complex medical and behavioral information in a readily understood and accurate manner. In the legal arena, as in our clinical practices, teaching, and scholarship, clear communication is our central goal. Click here to watch a video introducing fpamed.

We have consulted on multi-plaintiff cases, mass torts, employment cases, and forensic child psychiatry cases. We reach our opinions and offer testimony based on evidence, not simply our authority. Integrating the data from medical records, legal documents, psychological testing and interviews, we answer questions at the interface of law and mental health based on solid science and clinical experience.
