The Company Philosophy which binds us all together here at Barry Hargan & Associates is our belief that most criminal behavior is rooted in clinical, cognitive or organic disorders. That is why those disorders, when left undiagnosed or ineffectively managed by the offender, other clinicians or probation and parole professionals, may:

  1. Contribute to criminal behavior and criminal recidivism.
  2. Contribute to violations or new offenses while on supervision.
  3. Be mismanaged while on supervision through ineffective case management when probation or parole agents do not have the appropriate credentials, training or experience to facilitate effective case outcomes.
  4. Serve as mitigation in preparing our reports or when you are preparing for sentencing.

That is why we have staffed our network with clinicians who are trained and experienced not only in identifying the clinical disorders driving the offending behavior, but who are also able to prescribe the appropriate conditions, treatment options and other useful information that will assist in reducing the potential to re-offend. The courts and attorneys on both sides have expressed time and again over the years their appreciation of this useful information.

That is why our company philosophy has enabled us to be effective and successful as a team!
