Extensive Range of Forensic Evaluations and Consultation


Forensic Psychology is concerned with understanding mental health issues and how they impact the legal system. At CNP our mission in our forensic cases is to ensure that each case is carefully evaluated to identify each and every way in which mental health issues intersect with the legal system. We have over 20 years of experience with the court systems. Our Forensic Psychologists are experts in the field and have consulted in military and civilian courts nationally in hundreds of cases. We consult with prosecution/plaintiff as well as defense and we are often Court-appointed as independent experts on the case.
