About Us

We believe that there are better options in many cases for juveniles (and adults) than the public criminal justice system offers, and we have years of experience and education as well as the ability to back up that belief.

We know that if you are in need of our help, you are frightened and worried, either for a loved one or for yourself. We want to help.

Criminological Associates and Social Evaluation Research staff are professionals with long histories working in the criminal justice system. We hold academic degrees through the Ph.D., M.A., and M.S.W. We are mental health professionals, educators, lawyers, private investigators and others.

We have held positions as professors preparing students to be probation and parole officers, police officer and correctional officers. We have done the same in justice academy settings.

Typically the expert witness testimony in court is provided by Reed Adams, Ph.D., CPSP and is based on reviews of scientific research about the topic of concern to the court.
