Any court appearance, or deposition, or the provision of documents for any attorney or for the court must be accommpanied with an subpoena and will be billed based on our fee schedule. Insurance does not cover these services. You may be asked to pay for time reserved in advance or pay a retainer, either of which is necessary before the court appearance or deposition can occur. Contact our office for the Court Appeance fee schedule details.
The fee is due even if the appearance is canceled by anyone other that me for any reason and at any time. These are my usual and customary fee arrangements. Further required attendances will be charged at additional daily rates under the same circumstances. Those terms are not negotiable.
If you are involved in a court proceeding and a request is made for information concerning your diagnosis and treatment, such information is protected by the psychologist-patient privilege law. We cannot provide any information without your (or your legal representative’s) written authorization, or a court order. If you are involved or contemplating litigation, you should consult with your attorney to determine whether a court would be likely to order us to disclose information.
