We understand that a mitigation specialist is an indispensable member of the defense team throughout all capital proceedings. Mitigation specialists possess clinical and information-gathering skills and training that most lawyers simply do not have. They have the time and ability to elicit sensitive, embarrassing and often humiliating evidence (e.g., family sexual abuse) that the defendant may never have disclosed. Here at PI Miami/GPS Investigations we have the clinical skills to recognize such things as congenital, mental or neurological conditions, to understand how these conditions may have affected the defendant’s development and behavior, and to identify the most appropriate experts to examine the defendant or testify on his behalf. Moreover, they may be critical to assuring that the client obtains therapeutic services that render him cognitively and emotionally competent to make sound decisions concerning his case. Our Mitigation team consists of former law enforcement personnel, Hostage negotiators who have Mitigated violent crime scenes and which have the experience as serving not only as a Mitigation specialist but as an expert witness on contributing factors to psychological behavioral patterns.
Our mitigation specialists play an important role as well in maintaining close contact with the client and their family while the case is pending. The rapport developed in this process can be the key to persuading a client to accept a plea to a sentence less than death.
