    Designed as a quick and accessible reference, this book helps lawyers understand and address the array of mental health expert issues they will encounter in their cases. Written by John A. Zervopoulos, who is both an attorney and psychologist, each issue in the book is examined through the dual prism of Daubert-Frye principles (the legal perspective) and of professional psychology's expertise and literature (the psychological perspective). This information provides the tools necessary to develop clear direct examinations, sharpen cross examinations, and compose effective, compelling arguments to the court. These lessons are also useful to attorneys who litigate cases outside of family law.

    Each chapter in considers one particular issue commonly encountered in litigation, such as when experts rely on experts, managing experienced-based testimony, or the purpose of evaluation reports, and consider three aspects to help lawyers understand and effectively manage the issue:

    • Spot the Issue: What is the mental health expert issue; and how can lawyers spot the issue in a case?
    • Analyze the Issue: What substantive information help help lawyers analyze the issue from two aspects: relevant case-law based principles and psychology's professional literature and standards?
    • Address the Issue: How can lawyers address the issue effectively in an expert's deposition or court testimny and in their oral and written arguments to court?
