CIVIL LITIGATION

If you are seeking an independent psychological evaluation (IPE) to assess psychological damages, civil competencies and other legal issues, Clayman & Associates has the experience and capability to provide reliable assessments that can withstand rigorous scrutiny. We make psychological concepts understandable and useful in the legal setting, considering both direct and indirect factors that could impact the ultimate decisions addressed by the court. Our thorough evaluation approach relies on three important perspectives in considering an individual’s functioning:

How was the person functioning prior to the alleged harm?
How was the person functioning at the time of the evaluation? How has the alleged harm affected the person since the event and what are the likely long term effects?

Civil litigation matters in which Clayman & Associates may provide valuable input include, but are not limited to: 

Sexual Harassment
Workplace Violence
Hostile Work Environment
Psychological and Emotional Damages
Workers Compensation

Personal Injury/Psychological Damages
Brain Injury
Predisposed Personality

Malpractice and Professional Behavior

Civil Competencies

Testamentary Capacity


In all cases, Clayman & Associates provides psychological evaluations to help determine psychological conditions, impairments and disabilities that include consideration of the possibility of malingering, and how that impacts the psycho-legal question at hand. 

Every day, we handle a range of civil litigation issues that often require extensive research in order to understand every aspect of the case. It is our duty to consider all factors that might contribute to a particular incident or behavior in order to provide a thorough and unbiased assessment. 

Our distinct and thorough knowledge allows us to develop the most accurate and complete evaluation for any civil litigation case. The extensive understanding of the law and its processes, coupled with expertise regarding its interface with psychological factors demonstrated by Clayman & Associates is surpassed by few in the field.
