Dr. Elizabeth Olivet: They didn't subpoena me. I volunteered to testify as soon as I heard you put that charlatan Stronach on the stand.
Michael Cutter: She's hardly a charlatan.
Dr. Elizabeth Olivet: She's an academic. She studies studies. I counsel victims.
D.A. Jack McCoy: You've historically testified for us, Liz. Your appearance as a defense witness carries weight far beyond the substance of your testimony.

Without knowing context
10 August 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Psychologist John Shea is our murder victim. But with an opening soliloquy he becomes as much a character in this as the rest of the cast. Of course tapes of his sessions are played throughout the course of the story.

Detectives Jesse Martin and Jeremy Sisto arrest the victim's wife Moira Kelly for the crime. She's heard some of the tapes and they show that her husband liked to take advantage of his patients. She ought to know because she started out as one of his patients.

With some court advisers Kelly does a great job defending herself and Linus Roache is really up against it. She even elicits the support of long time police and DA consulting psychiatrist Carolyn McCormick appearing for the defense this time. An expert witness that the DA calls is a charlatan in Dr. Olivet's professional opinion.

I won't reveal the end, but without knowing context you can draw a lot of wrong conclusions.
