Neuropsychology for Attorneys

Empirically-Supported Testimony

Clear, concise information for attorneys, juries, and courts on the impact of brain injuries and other neurologic conditions on cognition and functioning

Neuropsychological assessment and testimony that can withstand a Daubert challenge

Neuropsychologists help attorneys, juries, and courts understand whether a client has neurocognitive deficits, and what might be the cause of those deficits, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace injuries
  • Exposure to harmful chemicals or toxins, including mold
  • Electrical injury
  • Stroke
  • Dementia
  • Substance Abuse
  • Anoxic Injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Depression
  • Post-surgical Complications
  • Malingering

Neuropsychologists provide testimony to identify and characterize:

  • Client brain dysfunction, even if it is mild in severity
  • Cognitive or psychological symptom exaggeration or malingering (i.e., faking symptoms)

We also review records to provide an expert opinion on:

  • Client's expected neuropsychological status following a brain injury
  • Accuracy of neuropsychological or psychological assessments performed by other professionals

A fee schedule must be returned fully signed along with retainer payment and relevant releases of information before the examinee or testimony is scheduled.

Unless other arrangements are made before the evaluation, it is the responsibility of the retaining attorney to pay these charges.

Please send relevant medical records at least two weeks prior to evaluation along with signed releases of information for relevant parties.

Reports are completed within 30 days of the evaluation or receipt of all medical records, or whichever occurs later. Reports are not finalized, signed, or completed until payment is completed in full. Invoices will be sent for charges incurred after the examination (e.g., testimony, waiting, preparation, appearances, etc.).

The examinee should get a good night's sleep before the evaluation, bring any glasses or hearing aids they need, a photo ID, and a list of current medications.
