Dr. Humes - Forensic Evaluations

Forensic psychology is the interface between clinical psychology and the justice system.  Although forensic evaluations are conducted primarily for the courts in criminal or civil cases, they are also used by professional licensing boards and other agencies to make determinations about a person's fitness for duty or capacity to parent.  An important element of forensic psychological practice is the capacity to testify in court as an expert witness and to provide a psychological portrait of the subject in a way that is understandable by both legal professionals and lay persons (in the case of a jury).


Dr. Humes has been working in the area of forensic psychology since 2002, and has extensive experience with forensic psychological evaluations as well as with providing expert opinions both in court and in written documents.
