David Glaser, M.D. has been performing psychiatric evaluations and teaching about Forensic Psychiatry for over three decades. His interest in Forensic Psychiatry emanates from contact with the late Seymour Pollack, M.D., Ph.D, one of the pioneers in Forensic Psychiatry. Since the inception of his career, Dr. Glaser has performed over a thousand evaluations, criminal and civil, defense and plaintiff, at the request of attorneys, individuals, industry, insurance companies, and judges. In the California Workers Compensation system, he has performed hundreds of evaluations as a neutral evaluator (Agreed Medical Evaluations and Panels Qualified Medical Evaluations), chosen jointly by plaintiff and defense attorneys.
Dr. Glaser has been on the faculty of the U.C.L.A. Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship Program and has been on the Advisory Board of the American College of Forensic Psychiatry. He is Board Certified in Psychiatry and Neurology. He has also been Board Certified in Forensic Psychiatry. Dr. Glaser’s approach to a forensic evaluation is based upon integrating information from a thorough forensic psychiatric interview, a consideration of the content of all records provided and requested, and the results of an extensive battery of psychological and, when appropriate, neuropsychological testing. His reports are detailed with medical-legal opinions based upon all reliable information that is available to be considered. He has a reputation for providing solid testimony in both depositions as well as jury and judge trials.
Dr. Glaser has lectured on various aspects of Forensic Psychiatry at conventions as well as in university settings. Attorney reference are available upon request.
