Dr. Matthew Mendel
Since 1997, I have conducted forensic evaluations of male survivors of childhood abuse in both civil and criminal cases. I have worked on forensic cases in numerous states including of Arizona, Arkansas, California, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and in Federal jurisdiction. Most of my forensic cases have involved capital murder, or death penalty, cases in which the defendant had been abused during his childhood. In these cases, I have conducted evaluations of the defendant in order to better understand the impact of childhood events – including trauma and abuse – upon his later functioning.
Both through my writing and my appearances in court, I am able to connect with and communicate effectively with the jurors encharged with determining a defendant's fate. In these cases, I write a mini-biography of an individual charged with capital murder. By doing so, I help those who read my report or hear my testimony understand how his childhood -- filled with tragedy and abuse -- contributed to him developing into the adult he became.
