Dr. Oneal is a skillful psychologist who is fair-minded and compassionate. I have worked with Dr. Oneal on both sides of the aisle during my career. As a public defender, I cross-examined Dr. Oneal many times when he testified as a State witness against my clients. As an adverse witness, he was always unbiased, accurate, and extremely pleasant. Over the past 10 years in private practice, I have engaged him to evaluate numerous clients. His reports are always thorough, well-written, and have helped me persuasively and successfully tell my clients’ stories in court.

Dr. Oneal is incredibly gifted, well respected by Judges, DPA’s and other experts in our community. He is the best evaluator to have on your team if you are representing an adolescent or youthful adult. My teenage clients all tell me how comfortable they were with Dr. Oneal, and how easy it is to talk to him.

Working with Dr. Oneal is always very easy. He goes out of his way to help me understand my clients’ clinical limitations as well as the State’s experts’ conclusions. When writing reports, he reviews every record given to him and contacts the clients’ family and friends to make sure he has a complete understanding of clients. When he is called to testify he demonstrates professionalism and a breadth of knowledge that always outshines the State’s expert. I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Oneal.
