Forensic Expert Services

Dr. Judy Ho is a triple board-certified Clinical and Forensic Neuropsychologist. She conducts comprehensive neuropsychological and forensic evaluations and provides sworn testimonies at depositions and court proceedings as an expert witness in both civil and criminal litigations. She is retained by both plaintiff and respondent attorneys, as well as prosecution and defense attorneys. In her expert witness work, she is careful to examine the current literature, utilizing the most up-to-date, scientifically validated instruments to evaluate and opine on matters germane to the case. A list of retained cases is available upon request.

Forensic evaluation is an assessment of an individual, often used in legal and/or employment settings to document a wide variety of medically and psychologically relevant information. Dr. Judy conducts forensic assessments in a variety of civic and criminal legal proceedings, and works closely with the client, his/her lawyer, the employer, and/or the court to ensure that the assessment conducted will address the specific needs for the case.   


All forensic evaluations include review of all pertinent legal and clinical documentation, clinical interviewing, collateral data gathering, and the administration of psychological testing (which may include neuropsychological instruments if necessary) and specialized forensic assessments (where appropriate). At the conclusion of the evaluation, verbal feedback will be provided, and a written report will be prepared (if requested) that includes specific sections that pertain to the assessment purpose, as well as test interpretation and recommendations. In certain cases, independent forensic evaluation may not be required, rather, a review of the assessment methods of other expert witnesses and to render an opinion about the validity of their methods, interpretation, and conclusions.
