Rocky Mountain Forensic Psychiatry, PLLC is a company dedicated to serving the Rocky Mountain West with professional mental health expert witness services in several key areas. Based in Pueblo, CO, we serve as a major regional hub of forensic psychiatric services. In addition to our regional work in the Rocky Mountains, we also travel for cases, consultations or speaking engagements.
Forensic Psychiatry encompasses everything at the interface of mental health and the law. It is a subspecialty of the medical field of psychiatry. Forensic psychiatrists have expert knowledge in applying psychiatry and mental health to legal questions in legal contexts. As a Yale University-trained forensic psychiatrist, this is where I may be of service to you. At Rocky Mountain Forensic Psychiatry, we are able to perform expert witness services including evaluations of defendants to be used in a criminal case, work with employers to enhance the safety of employees in the workplace, or apply mental health and legal expertise as it pertains to a variety of civil contexts, including medical malpractice.
As the legal process is adversarial, parties on both sides may at times wish to seek out mental health expert witness services. Please note that our standard practice, no matter who hires us for a case, is to approach the case thoroughly without any preconceived notions, striving for objectivity and the highest possible ethical standards. We see one role of the forensic expert as being similar to that of a detective. We believe that the strongest opinions are those arrived at in which there are no stones lefts unturned. We approach each case thoughtfully and systematically.

“I hired Dr. Walmer to conduct an evaluation of a client. During the evaluation, Dr. Walmer developed a strong rapport with the client, despite that the client was very difficult. After the evaluation, Dr. Walmer contacted me and provided a very thorough explanation of his conclusions and even provided helpful advice for how to improve my relationship with the client. Dr. Walmer is competent, thorough, and made communication easy; I would recommend him to my colleagues in the future.”
“Dr. Walmer is one of the best forensic psychiatrists I have worked with. I have known Dr. Walmer since our training at the Division of Law and Psychiatry at Yale University, where even as a trainee he demonstrated an uncanny accuracy in his forensic assessments, a commanding presence when on the stand, and a deep understanding of the science and jurisprudence related to his work. Dr. Walmer has continued to do forensic assessments in Colorado, and is truly one of the emerging leaders in his area.”East Coast-based Brown and Yale University-trained Adult, Child and Forensic Psychiatrist
“Dr. Walmer performed a second competency evaluation at my request. My client had a long and complicated mental health history and was uncooperative with evaluators, but Dr. Walmer was willing and able to reach out to collateral sources in order to provide a very thorough analysis and persuasive finding well within the given time-frame. The Judge, DA, and I were all impressed by his work.”
