Forensic Evaluations & Testimony
Forensic psychology involves the application of psychological theories, methods, and practices to various matters within the judicial system. Dr. Mikesell’s forensic practice focuses on the relevant psycholegal question(s) for a particular case and then applies his expertise on the science and practice of psychology through the form of record review, attorney consultation, neuropsychological or psychological testing, production of a professional report and, if needed, expert testimony. Dr. Mikesell’s expertise in developmental, clinical, neuropsychological and rehabilitation psychology places him in a somewhat unique position to address a wide variety of psycholegal matters and to synthesize and integrate the nested complexities inherent in many cases. In doing so, Dr. Mikesell strives to provide an objective, independent, evidence-based approach to all cases, consultations, evaluations, reports and testimony.
Dr. Mikesell is Board Certified in Forensic Psychology by the American Board of Forensic Psychology (ABFP/ABPP).
