Mental health professionals deal with the law every day - whether they want to or not. There are more concrete issues like confidentiality, dual relationships, and mandated reporting. There are gray areas like acts and omissions that could result in liability, involuntary commitment, evaluation, assessment, and supervision. Lastly, there are those experiences that mental health professionals dread: getting a telephone call from a lawyer about one of their patients / clients, being served with a subpoena, summons, or notice of deposition.
Our job at Scanlon Law Offices, LLC, is to put your mind at ease and guide you through what might otherwise be an unpleasant experience.
