Dr. Martin H. Williams has been a licensed psychologist in California for thirty-five years. Dr. Williams currently is a Court Appointed Forensic Evaluator for criminal matters in the Superior Court of California. He formerly was a Forensic Psychologist with the Board of Parole Hearings of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. He also was manager of the Intensive Outpatient Psychotherapy Program at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Santa Clara, California, where he was a staff psychologist for 27 years. In that program, Dr. Williams treated patients with serious psychological problems, including depression, psychotic disorders, bipolar disorder, PTSD, personality disorders and drug abuse. Dr. Williams has offices in San Jose, Glendale, Los Angeles, Newport Beach and San Diego.
Dr. Williams puts his clinical expertise to use in the psychological evaluations he carries out for civil and criminal courts. He has testified nationwide in cases involving psychotherapy malpractice where defendants have been psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers and counselors. He has also evaluated plaintiffs who have claimed emotional damages in cases of personal injury, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, racial discrimination and medical and dental malpractice. Dr. Williams has testified for both plaintiff and defense in civil court, criminal court and at administrative law hearings and considers the merits of each case before committing to testify.
Dr. Williams is an expert in the use of objective psychological assessment tools to arrive at conclusions regarding the personality characteristics and emotional damages experienced by litigants. Such objective assessments are highly credible in court, as they are unaffected by the potential biases of the person doing the assessment.
Dr. Williams is an expert on psychotherapy ethics and was the official observer for Psychologists in Independent Practice, the largest division of the American Psychological Association, at the meetings of the Ethics Code Task Force, the committee that rewrote the APA Ethics Code for the 2002 revision. Dr. Williams has lectured on psychotherapy ethics before numerous professional organizations, assisting mental health professionals to earn continuing education credits for license renewal. Dr. Williams has been elected a Fellow of the American Psychological Association. Please review Dr. Williams' C.V. to see his numerous publications on ethics and psychological assessment.
