    Though ABA Standards suggest that the modern practice should be diverting the mentally ill from criminal prosecution wherever possible, litigating competency is a necessary part of criminal practice. Mr. Arcidiacono and Ms. Murphrey both have years of experience litigating the issue of criminal competency in state court. Dr. Kavanaugh, a forensic clinical psychologist, has many years of experience providing case evaluation and consultation in juvenile, criminal, civil, and capital cases.

    Topics will include the selection of experts, analysis of psychological evaluations, and presentation of testimony. The presenters will also discuss how to negotiate across the aisle in a way that is consistent with a prosecutor’s pursuit of justice and a defender’s obligation for vigorous client advocacy.


    Our Expert Faculty:

    Guy Arcidiacono is a Deputy Bureau Chief in the Appeals & Training Bureau of the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office. He is also the Attorney-in-Charge of the Office's Psychiatric Litigation Unit, which is responsible for hearings to determine defendants' competence to stand trial, evaluation of possible not responsible defenses at trial, post commitment retention proceedings and civil commitment information requests. He previously served as the Attorney in-Charge of the Office's East End Unit, the office unit which covered the north and south forks of Long Island including the Hamptons. In 2012 he was named to the American Bar Association, Criminal Justice Section Mental Health Standards Task Force. In 2013 he was appointed the Criminal Justice Section's Liaison to the ABA's Commission on Disability Rights, and in July, 2015 was appointed as Co-Chair of the Criminal Justice Section's Mental Health Committee

In 2018, Dr. Kavanaugh was appointed as a Fellow for the APA Division 42, Psychologists in Independent Practice. In private practice since 1999, Dr. Kavanaugh evaluates youth and adults on a variety of forensic issues including competence to understand Miranda rights, competence to stand trial, transfer to adult court, wrongful convictions, ability to form intent, disputed confessions, pleas of not guilty by reason of insanity, mitigation and capital cases, and has been retained in multiple Miller v. Alabama cases. Additionally, she testifies regularly in state and federal courts.
