From the mid 1960's until the early 1980's I served as a Los Angeles county deputy
Coroner as part of my professional activities at the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention center.

In this capacity, either singly or as part of a medical legal team I performed more than 100 Psychological Examinations. In addition, while directing a federally funded substance abuse program for federal probationers I participated in scores of recission hearings. Since the mid 1970's I have consulted, been deposed or testified in over 100 civil cases. The primary focus of these cases has been on wrongful death and psychiatric/psychological malpractice where suicide has been an issue.
