The purpose of this website is to provide you with information you need in understanding the various aspects of psychological forensics and Dr. Heller’s services. Dr. Heller’s role as a forensic evaluator varies depending upon the kind of legal case you have, the phase of litigation and the court. He is appointed by a Judge or requested by an attorney in order to provide a forensic evaluation, or custody evaluation on an important issue.
Depending upon whether your case is in family, criminal or civil court, Dr. Heller can provide you with an understanding of how his services can meet your needs. Forensic Psychology is at the crossroads of the legal profession and psychology. Services can range from an analysis of family issues to understanding criminal behavior. We can get started via email or a phone call that can be initiated through our contact page. We endeavor to respond to all case inquiries from attorneys by the end of the business day in which you contact us.
This website endeavors to review interesting cases as well as discuss behavioral science research that affects the practice of forensic psychology and contributes to the scientist-practitioner model that guides Dr. Heller’s work.
