He has completed personal injury evaluations (both plaintiff and defense) with children and adults, as well as evaluations regarding allegations of sexual abuse and domestic violence, termination of parental rights, and guardianship and adoption evaluations. He has provided expert testimony in the following California Jurisdictions: Lake County, Marin County, Mendocino County, Napa County, San Francisco County, Alameda County, Solano County and Sonoma County.

Family Law Consultation Services

Dr. Pickar provides consultation to family law attorneys regarding complex child custody issues such as: domestic violence, alienation and parent-child contact problems, children with special needs, and allegations of child sexual abuse.

For Family Law Attorneys, Dr. Pickar also offers work product reviews of other psychologists' child custody evaluation reports. A work product review of another evaluator would offer commentary regarding the evaluator's procedures, the selecting of testing instruments, the interpretation of psychological testing data, and the degree to which opinions expressed are or are not supported by the data presented. If a work product review revealed significant methodological errors or deficiencies in the evaluator's report, Dr. Pickar would then be available for trial preparation, such as assisting an attorney prepare specific questions for the evaluator during cross examination. He would also be available to offer testimony regarding the deficiencies identified in the review of an evaluator's work.
