Legal opinions and appearances in court can be ‘tricky’ for many practitioners depending upon the matter, the court’s perspective and available resources in legal expertise. Dr Burdick has ‘opined’ for decades on matters ranging from educational choices in custody matters, therapeutic school or program disposition in juvenile cases; to deportation in immigration process for families with mental health, education, and substance abuse matters; to criminal pending matters involving personal injury, competency to stand trial and / or insanity pleas; and civil matters involving prescription drug administration and improper oversight by insurance company.

In all of these matters, Dr Burdick employs the best research and knowledge available, combined with his stellar courtroom reputation and a professional, long standing CV  to determine the most effective resources to properly resolve the issue of disposition. He regularly presents before the American College of Forensic Psychology, International Academy of Mental Health, International Congress of Psychology, and local groups of attorneys, lawyers, advocates, and others.
