Walker & Associates, LLC is a psychology firm that specializes in forensic evaluations and expert testimony to assist attorneys in helping answering legal questions before the court. Dr. Lenore Walker, the psychologist who heads the firm, has been providing these services for the past forty years. Originally creating the defense using Battered Woman Syndrome for women who killed their abusers in what they claimed was self-defense, the testimony has developed into criminal defenses for a variety of other crimes of duress or in civil and other cases where abuse has impacted someone’s state of mind. Assessment of the psychological impact of all forms of gender violence (i.e. rape, sexual exploitation and harassment, child abuse, sex trafficking, and domestic violence) and how the experience impacts someone’s state of mind in civil cases is also provided. Some cases of access to a child after allegations of abuse have been made can also be evaluated and testimony may be provided where possible. Please see our fee schedule for more information.
