We Are Expert Parental Alienation Lawyers


We Are Different, Very Different

Our team has a unique blend of education and experience in the behavioral sciences and the law. Unlike other law firms, we are capable of addressing challenges faced by both counselors and lawyers. Our senior attorney, Doctor Demosthenes Lorandos, is a renowned clinical psychologist, author, speaker, and litigator. As a psychologist and attorney, Dr. Lorandos specializes in contentious domestic relations actions and is an expert in Parental Alienation Syndrome. Dr. Lorandos was a contributing editor of The International Handbook of Parental Alienation Syndrome (a 2006 project completed with Dr. Richard Gardner and Dr. Richard Sauber). Dr. Lorandos was the executive editor of the new text Parental Alienation – The Handbook for Mental Health and Legal Professionals. This text was built with the additional editorial help of child psychiatrist William Bernet and clinical psychologist Richard Sauber. Drawing together researchers from around the world, this new text took three years to develop and includes over a thousand bibliographic entries and discussion of five hundred parental alienation cases. Dr. Lorandos is also the co-author of several books combining psychology and the law including Benchbook in the Behavioral Sciences, and Cross-Examining Experts in the Behavioral Sciences. Our legal team possesses degrees in almost all areas of the behavioral sciences: psychology, sociology, and anthropology.

The Need for Psychological and Legal Expertise Regarding PAS

Dr. Lorandos’ law firm – Lorandos Joshi in Ann Arbor, Michigan developed PASattorney.com to provide you with a source of expert psychological and legal information so that (1) you can recognize PAS and (2) make an educated decision on how to deal with it. Unlike most sources on the Internet, the staff of Lorandos Joshi and PASattorney.com combine psychological and legal expertise.

Any child custody dispute involving PAS is going to boil down to a battle of expert witnesses. The court will rely on expert testimony to determine the existence of Parental Alienation Syndrome, and the court will rely on expert advice on what to do about PAS. You should not expect impartiality from the other side’s experts, and at the same time, you should not expect complete impartiality from court-appointed experts. What’s more, you should not expect real or deeply informed expertise, either. You will need a team of experts able to separate good science from junk science. Trials involving Parental Alienation Syndrome can be trials in every sense of the word, and the stakes are high. You will need specialists like the forensic psychologists and trained litigators at Lorandos Joshi and PASattorney.com.
