Legal consultation may occur for a variety of reasons. We do not charge for brief telephone consultation with established clients or consultation that occurs during the referral process to help ensure that our practice is among the most appropriate for your case. We also offer a free initial consultation concerning the quality of forensic evaluation work performed by other practices (go to our Blog page for a related post). Hourly rates apply to additional consultation work. Commonly requested services include the review and critique of other mental health professionals' work and the provision of assistance in preparing to cross-examine a mental health expert.
