Criminal Litigation

Often times, criminal litigation matters require psychological involvement. Having over 30 years of courtroom experience, Clayman & Associates offers assessments that are trusted in both state and federal courts. Our pursuit of the bases for making decisions is exhaustive, which has led to what we perceive as success—long-term reliance on our assessments to help in making legal decisions. Our approach is affirmed in many jurisdictions, where all parties involved agree for us to provide uncontested single evaluations or to serve as a tie-breaker when there has been a disagreement among other experts.

Clayman & Associates offers accurate, comprehensive evaluations of defendants, combining the best of clinical, actuarial and historical data. We provide thoroughly analyzed assessments that help both judges and juries make objective legal decisions.
