Introduction

Forensic Psychiatrists and Forensic Psychologists specializing in Probate and Estate Planning Cases are not easy to find. Similarly, for a forensic psychiatrist or psychologist, attracting the cases they want is not taught in school. You need an expert for that. Finding and being found is what I do. Drawing on 30 years of experience in probate and estate administration, and 10 consulting in forensic psychiatry, I help lawyers find doctors, and doctors find lawyers, to explain to a jury the complex nature of psychiatry, brain injury, dementia and the psychological profile of a person vulnerable to undue influence. Understanding the key issues of a case enables me to provide a sound recommendation to attorneys about experts skilled in forensic assessment in the areas of competency to enter into a contract (real estate fraud, forming a trust, breach of fiduciary duties), testamentary capacity, elder abuse and elder fraud, family relationships that go sideways and those cases I call "mommy loved you best." Only 3% of all Psychiatrists are also Board-Certified in Forensic Psychiatry. Even fewer psychologists obtain a Board Certification in their Forensic subspecialty. I help experts develop their practice to become the focus of an attorney's search. When needed, I can assist attorneys to find a suitable expert witness. As a marketing consultant, I can assist attorneys in developing their own legal practice. In short, I live and breathe law and the business of being an expert witness. Perhaps I can help you. My clients include experts found on JurisPro in the estate and probate administration search results. Let's get this party started.
