Dr. Rocchio is available to provide legal consultation and expert witness services to attorneys around mental health issues in general or those specifically relating to traumatic stress and dissociation, intimate partner violence, rape and sexual assault, victimization, discrimination, and harassment. The focus may be generic (e.g., typically expected effects of sexual harassment or victimization) and/or specific (e.g., the particular dynamics relevant in a given legal case). She has conducted forensic evaluations of plaintiffs in civil litigation and of defendants in criminal matters, and consults in matters of both criminal defense and prosecution.
The majority of Dr. Rocchio’s involvement in forensic practice stems from cases where some form of trauma, abuse, or violence has a direct bearing on the criminal charges or civil litigation at hand. However, Dr. Rocchio has also provided attorney consultation in order to assist the attorney with understanding the mental status of the defendant at the time of the alleged offense.
