The mission of fpamed is to provide the legal profession with the highest quality evidence-based forensic psychiatric and psychological opinion and testimony. To accomplish this, we have built as a small specialty practice of highly trained forensic psychiatrists and psychologists who combine a keen intelligence and superb clinical and forensic education, with broad experience.
Interdisciplinary – Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology
Our group includes five forensic psychiatrists and two forensic neuropsychologists. We work on cases collaboratively often employing the “case conference” approach used throughout medical education.
Each one of our experts has excellent communication skills. We are experienced teachers media experts who are adept at explaining complex and sometimes abstract concepts in simple and clearly understandable language, often illustrating our narratives with concrete and visual examples when possible. Teaching and interview experience has strengthened our testimonial skills.
Included among the specialty skills of our group of five forensic psychiatrists and two forensic neuropsychologists is expertise in:
Mass Torts Assessment
We have particular interest in and experience with mass tort complaints by groups of individuals impacted upon by the same event or circumstances. The assessment of mass tort claims demand an integrated team approach in order to complete initial screenings and multiple individual forensic evaluations in a careful, timely and cost effective manner. We have experience with managing group claims of emotional damages and have developed a methodology for assessing populations of individual litigants.
Forensic Neuropsychology and Pediatric Neuropsychology
Our forensic neuropsychologists are highly trained, skilled and broadly experienced in the administration and interpretation of the most widely accepted child, adolescent and adult neurocognitive and personality assessment instruments. They are experienced with assessing forensic as well as clinical populations. Virtually every forensic examination performed by an fpamed expert (with the obvious exception of testimentary capacity consultatons in will contests) includes a full psychological testing assessment employing a battert of carefully chosen personality and/or neurocognitive instruments, followed by a detailed analysis of all psychological test data generated experts from both sides as well as tby he treating psychologist.

We welcome inquiries from both sides of the civil and criminal bar. We pride ourselves in reaching independent conclusions. Our approach is to carefully assess all available data in order to develop evidence based opinions about diagnosis, progrnosis and causation. We strive to to recognize and manage our own biases when and if they occur, in order to minimize their effect upon our objectivity. We offer opinions that reflect what we honestly believe the scientifc evidence demonstrates, regardless of whether it supports a particular case theory. We believe that in the end all sides are best served by honest and truthful expert opinion. Thus, our goal is to practice forensic psychiatry and psychology with maximum integrity and in accordance with the highest ethical standards of our two professions.
