California Professional Malpractice Lawyers

Social Workers, psychologists, marriage family therapists, psychiatrists and other licensed psychotherapists in the mental health care services industry can commit malpractice in several ways.

They can harm people by failing to diagnose, misdiagnosing or mistreating a mental condition (as judged by the standards of their profession). They can harm patients by having sex with them or by abusing or exploiting them in other ways. They can also do significant damage by violating patient privacy laws or by failing to report suspected sexual abuse even though they are legally required to do so.

In some cases, the misconduct is intentional. In others, not. In every instance, the emotional and psychological injuries that result can be devastating and even deadly.

At the Law Offices of Joseph C. George, Ph.D. we have been committed to helping victims of mental health malpractice in the state of California since 1986. As a licensed psychologist with more than a decade of professional experience as a clinical psychologist in the U.S. Air Force and more than 35 total years of experience with these matters, attorney Dr. Joseph C. George, understands the medical issues involved with mental health malpractice claims as well as he does the legal ones. This, in turn, provides the critical edge needed to maximize compensation for victims of mental health care-related malpractice.

Attorney Dr. Joseph C. George, helped write some of the laws that apply to mental health malpractice cases as a member of the California Senate Task Force on Psychotherapist–Patient Sexual Relationships in 1986.
