Areas of Expertise
13 years ago I had never heard of forensic psychiatry. Forensic medicine, forensic science, yes. My first thought about psychiatry was "how do you do psychiatry on dead people?" Too much CSI. I found attorneys were equally struggling to know if they could best represent their client bringing a Forensic Psychiatrist or Psychologist into the mix. I found it to be infinitely more interesting than my work as a paralegal for 20 years. My legal background, however, enabled me to speak to attorney-clients in their own language. It was very different than the language of medicine, forensic or otherwise. As I set up a marketing plan I applied my experience with how attorneys seek experts to the expert's own positioning to be found. I believe every element of the forensic doctor's practice can be designed with the attorney's practice methods in mind. Goodwill and repeat business followed.
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area working with doctors and lawyers nationwide. My Expert clients are in the Midwest (Illinois, Minnesota), Southeast (North and South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia, Mid-Atlantic region (PA, DC), Southwest (Texas, Nevada), West Coast (LA, SF).

Are Expert Directories a Good Marketing Tool for Expert Witnesses in Psychiatry and Psychology?
In Forensic Fellowship you doubtless never had a conversation about Marketing, how to get work, or available resources to do so. You should know about navigating Expert Directories and Referral Services--or if they are a good idea in your field. "I don't know how" is the most common plea I hear from the recently Board-Certified. In fact, I hear it from Forensic Psychiatrists and Psychologists at all points in their careers.Read Article
