Forensic psychological services address a range of criminal and civil cases, referred by judges, Commonwealth’s Attorneys, and attorneys for the defense. Evaluations are conducted for both criminal and juvenile court, following a range of alleged offenses (e.g., capital murder, homicide, stalking, robbery, sexual assault, and property crime).
Oyster Point Psychological provides forensic services for a short-list of matters that are (or potentially) before the court.
- Competency to stand trial
- Competency to make decisions and waive rights
- Mental status at time of the offense
- We invite potential clients with other questions and challenges to call for a free consultation.
Oyster Point Psychological Practice provides assessment and consultation related to civil litigation. Forensic evaluations in civil litigation typically involve assessment of emotional injury, trauma, physical or sexual abuse, and related issues.
Oyster Point Psychological also provides evaluations and consultation in cases that are not before the court. Most often, these private consultations involve violence risk assessment or threat assessment for schools or universities. Others involve fitness for duty evaluations for the workplace.
Questions regarding forensic psychology consultation should be directed to Dr. Billups
