Grace P. Lee, J.D., Ph.D.
A 2007 graduate of PGSP's Ph.D. program, Dr. Grace P. Lee was a recipient of the prestigious Murray Tondow Outstanding Dissertation Award. Dr. Lee is a leading expert in the presentation of psychological scientific evidence. Her research is based on the Daubert standard in addressing the admissibility of psychological assessments as expert testimony. In 1993, the United States Supreme Court in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals announced various factors that courts may use in analyzing the reliability and validity of scientific evidence. Since the Daubert decision, judges, academicians, and forensic psychologists have expressed confusion about these factors and their application. Dr. Lee is working on solutions to these problems, and making a valuable contribution in providing judges with general guidelines for evaluating psychological assessments.
Dr. Lee is the Deputy Director of the Forensic Psychology Group, a licensed New York psychologist, and a member of the Bar of the State of California. She specializes in forensic, psychological, and neuropsychological evaluations and is available for expert testimony in the areas of immigration, criminal, personal injury, medical malpractice, and employment law.
