Specialized knowledge is often necessary to help judges and juries understand and interpret information dealing with human behaviors. When such expert testimony is presented, judges must decide if the expert is qualified to present that evidence, the evidence meets minimal standards of admissibility, and if the testimony violates any legal privileges or rules of evidence. Thus, a knowledgeable and experienced expert witness who knows the legal system and has specialized knowledge of forensic psychology can provide invaluable assistance to your case.
