We are available to serve as an expert witness, either rebutting other experts in writing, and/or testifying in Court for your case. We have provided expert testimony and rebuttals to a variety of cases focusing on sexual harassment in the work place, trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, workplace issues and accommodations, EEO complaints, long term effects and best treatment options, adjustment difficulties, TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), and Motions to Order Independent Mental Health Evaluations. We have also testified in Federal Immigration Court after evaluating a client (Asylum, Immigration hardship evaluation). We can also serve as an expert witness either through the Roundtable Group or direct hire.
For our therapists to be used in legal matters as an expert or to testify on your behalf, the rate is $400 per hour and the practice requires a 4 hour minimum retainer ($1600). This includes travel time and any interaction related to the case, billed in 10 minute intervals similar to attorneys working on your case. Expedite fees will apply for psychological assessment or urgent needs depending on circumstances and timeframe. Turnaround for review of court related documents and/or providing assessments is typically 2 weeks. Expedite fees for less than 2 weeks apply, and during holidays or without typical lead in time usually are between 1.5 to 2 times normal customary legal rate. It is best to contact the office as soon as you find out that you have a legal issue so that you can be scheduled for an evaluation. Please contact us at 703-935-0058 x1 (Dr. Goldberg) or x6 (administrator). Legal clients will also be given a mobile line to contact Dr. Goldberg personally to address any pressing changes in the case or last minute requirements.
