Dr. Judith Friedman has established herself as a leader in forensic neuropsychology, a continually growing field of neuropsychology that provides psychological assessments within a legal context. Forensic neuropsychology evaluations typically include a consultation with an attorney, a referral source or another requesting a third party to answer legal questions for criminal and civil cases.
Understanding Forensic Neuropsychology
A forensic neuropsychologist provides an examination of a party involved in a case to determine neuropsychological function. Often, this evaluation is to determine if a person suffers from neurological or psychiatric disorders due to a specific event or injury, including TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). A forensic neuropsychologist will also help determine if a person is competent to stand trial, understands their responsibility in the alleged crime, or sentencing.
