Psychological Mitigation Evaluations
An evaluation of psychological mitigating factors involves a thorough assessment of a defendant’s background, mental health, and state of mind around the time of the alleged offense. A detailed history is gathered to provide information relevant to the defendant’s psychological development, psychiatric diagnoses, and status. Psychological mitigation evaluations and reports could be used as evidence for sentencing mitigation. A mitigation report can assist attorneys and the courts to understand psychological factors leading to an offense. Dr. Shah provides treatment recommendations specific to the defendant that could reduce the chance of reoffending. Multiple sources of information are used to produce a high quality and complete forensic evaluation.
