Expert Witness in the Behavioral Sciences and Law


Judges, prosecutors and lawyers know the law. Most are not educated in the behavioral sciences. Most juries are also not experts on psychology and the law. So how will a judge, jury or lawyer know when sham science is being presented by an expert witness in the courtroom? They won’t.

A case can hinge on the testimony of the expert witness. Ignorance is not bliss in this situation. A lawyer’s lack of a background in psychology can significantly affect the chances of winning results for his or her client.

When you cannot afford to lose, this is one team you want on your side. Call 989-335-5134 or e-mail the firm.
