Additional Information

I am a forensic psychiatrist practicing in the Orlando, Florida area, and have been retained in numerous criminal cases over the years, and well as civil cases in the areas of personal injury, malpractice, employment litigation, and family law. I have been involved as an expert in various probate cases, including guardianship issues and testamentary capacity cases. I have been retained by attorneys for both the plaintiff and defense in civil cases over my years of practice, and by the state and defense in criminal cases. I am board certified by the ABPN in psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, and geriatric psychiatry. I have a particular interest in matters pertaining to competency in all settings, be they criminal or civil, and the issues of whether one's mental state renders them able to make a specific decision or carry out a specified act. My first testimony ever in a courtroom involved a disputed 16 million will in 1988, and I have had subsequent experience in will contest cases over the years, using general psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, and forensic psychiatry principles to reconstruct the testator's mental state at the time of the will's execution. This complex and often highly contested area of the law is one of particular interest to me.
