Expert Witness

I provide both forensic and victim related expert witness testimony in both and criminal and civil court cases. She has  provided trial consulting services to the State Attorney offices throughout Florida. I have  testified and consulted in battery and murder cases on the issue of domestic violence, Battered Spouse Syndrome, and/or sexual violence. I have also  provided forensic services in civil court cases on behalf of numerous victims of domestic violence who are or have been victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.

In addition to being a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress and a Diplomate of the National Center of Crisis Management, in Collaboration with the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, I am  certified as an expert in both domestic violence and forensic counseling by the National Association of Forensic Counselors.I am also  listed as an expert witness in domestic violence, sexual violence, and trauma in the National Center for Crisis Management in Collaboration with the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress list of experts. http://www.nc-cm.org/cgi/webdata_witness.pl

Please understand that I believe that  being an expert in domestic violence, does not mean being an expert only for victims, but for truth.

As  an expert, I use my clinical knowledge, research based facts and experience  to discern between those who are truly victims and those who are claiming to be victims in order to get a ‘leg up’ in the court process.  Sadly, all too often non-victims use domestic violence allegations, when going through a divorce (or other legal matter), in order to manipulate the  court (i.e. attorneys, mental health professionals/ parenting evaluators, judicial outcome). 

I believe that  people who use their credentials and experience to financially prey on those struggling in the legal system.  I will not. I believe that an being an expert means not only having  education, knowledge, and experience , but integrity as well. I  will only accept cases that I believe my expert testimony (and/or consultation) will bring justice, not just dollars.

If you are looking for an expert with integrity, as well as education, experience and knowledge, I  can help.
