What is Forensic Psychology? A “forensic evaluation” involves much more than a standard psychological evaluation.  Forensic Psychology is the application of specialized psychological knowledge to provide information relevant to a legal question. The goal is to assist attorneys, judges,  jurors, law enforcement agencies, and individuals in making their decisions related  to Forensic Psychology Evaluations for the Courts.

Our Forensic Psychology experts have extensive experience administering a wide range of tests that pertain to specific legal questions in the Civil, Adult Criminal, Juvenile, and Family Law judicial system. And, we work and testify as an expert witness for either the plaintiff or the defense. We will stand firm on our Forensic Psychology Testing and offer compelling and persuasive testimony.

We are experts in testing, assessment, and diagnosis for 'Battered Women's Syndrome; and assault/battery and rape, intelligence and competency to stand trial. We have significant expertise in drug/substance abuse, borderline retardation, the levels of mental retardation in conjunction with DSM-IV Psychiatric Diagnosis, and other mitigating factors. We keep abreast of the precedent setting State Supreme and US Supreme Court cases on point to these critical psychological issues for the Court's consideration in rendering judgment.

BRAVA Forensic Testing Services  conducts the following types of Forensic evaluations in English and several in Spanish. We utilize state of the art, respected, standardized testing instruments per state statute and the "gold standard" in forensics testing - MMPI-2™ The Minnesota Report: Reports for Forensic Settings in Civil or Criminal Court and MMPI-2™ Criminal Justice & Correctional Report, and a battery of tests custom built for critical situations in full compliance with each state's statutory guidelines and precedent setting Supreme Court cases.
