“Dr. Adhia was an excellent witness for our defense. A qualified expert, he traveled to Georgia from Texas on short notice and provided critical testimony. The prosecution couldn’t touch him, but they will probably need him in the future.”Arturo Corsa, Esq.
“…Even the prosecutor indicated that he was impressed with the report. It was so thorough in fact that we reached an agreement that prevented the need for a trial.”

Two elements of almost every lawsuit
Interpretation of Events
Attorneys and juries are first faced with the behavior of all the parties.
Behavior, however, is not a psychiatric condition. But it might be influenced by one.
If Dr. Adhia finds a diagnostically significant psychiatric disorder exists–or not–his opinions as a psychiatrist, as a physician, can contribute to everyone’s ability to make informed decisions.
Including attorneys, the parties themselves and, of course triers of fact.
Legal consulting is different from serving as an Expert Witness. Dr. Adhia educates attorneys about psychiatric issues impacting the case, whether defense or plaintiff.
