Forensic consultants, particularly psychologists, offer multifaceted support in legal proceedings. Beyond expert testimony, they aid in witness preparation, legal strategy, and medical record scrutiny. While their impact on jury selection is debated, their expertise shines in mental disorder assessment, empirical research interpretation, and contextualizing mental health effects within the legal system. They contribute early in cases through merit screening, data interpretation, and client insight, and excel in witness interview preparation. Forensic consultants adeptly review opposing experts’ work, enhancing cross-examinations. Their role ensures a comprehensive, strategically sound approach to case evaluation, transcending conventional boundaries.
