Late in 1996 when I was still a psychological assistant, I was asked to assist in helping a well-known forensic psychologist to evaluate a man known for instigating terrorist acts in small suburbs of Los Angeles.  He enjoyed making pipe-bombs and letting them off.  The explosives never escalated beyond that point, but that was enough in this tense atmosphere.  Nineteen ninety three saw the first Trade Center bombing, and anger and dissention seemed to be mounting enough to keep the federal agencies on their more...(pdf version).


Calculating the cost of childcare in divorce proceedings can be a complicated endeavor.  And if all the costs are not included in the analysis, your client could lose out on a substantial amount of money.

While simply adding up the monthly costs of daycare can be relatively straightforward, the costs of hiring a nanny are numerous and by no means obvious.  Indeed, if you simply penciled in the amount of the nanny’s annual compensation, you would significantly underestimate the cost of hiring and employing the more...(pdf version).


Some years back while leaving a courtroom with a colleague, who was a defendant in a case, I overheard his conversation with the defending attorney.  The defendant had just completed his testimony.  At issue during his testimony was inmate records which my colleague claimed could not be found at his facility.  The plaintiff’s attorney was incredulous.  She believed the records must exist there and that the defendant was not being truthful.  As we exited the courthouse the defendant questioned his attorney as to why the plaintiff’s attorney had not pursued the location of the records further.  His attorney’s answer, “Because as good as she is, she does not know what she does not know…..she should have retained an expert.” more...(pdf version).

Minimizing Costs and Maximizing Outcomes in Product Liability Litigation

Written by: Quality Assurance Expert Witness

Expert Witness No. 1813


Product liability cases are often among the most expensive and time consuming to litigate. They usually involve a cadre of very costly experts spending months dissecting incomplete forensic evidence that may lead only to ambiguous conclusions. Even if the evidence is compelling, opposing counsel will find other experts to dispute their experts and the battle of the experts will continue as long as they are able to burn hours in research, testing and travel. In the meantime, the plaintiff and defendant are mired in discovery requests, objections to the requests, submission of incomplete discovery and, eventually, orders to compel. Weeks turn into months and scheduling orders turn into meaningless deadlines that are continually more...(pdf version).

Laboratory Test Validation in Causation Analysis

Written by:Forensic Pathologist, Toxicology and Occupational Medicine Expert Witness

Expert Witness No. 2471


One of the many considerations in the evaluation of causation in medical-legal cases is the determination of the validity of test results.  Medical-legal cases are increasingly adjudicated based upon results of scientific measurements and laboratory test results, the validity of which is generally not questioned.  In most cases, laboratory test findings are ancillary data that support a clinical diagnosis.  In other instances, for example, blood or breath alcohol testing results are considered to be the most crucial evidence in a case.  The fact that all test results have an inherent degree of error must be taken into consideration by individuals who interpret those tests and rely on those test results, especially when they are presented as evidence in legal proceedings.  The degree of error becomes an important consideration in the ultimate establishment of the reference range for the more...(pdf version).
