  • About my expert witness work

    I act as an accommodation and equipment expert witness. I provide a unique service combining equipment and accommodation needs assessments in one report, thus giving a holistic view of a client’s needs. I have assessed cases involving spinal injury, brain injury, loss of limbs and visual impairment. I have been instructed by defence and claimant lawyers, and have worked in the UK and abroad. I am regularly commended for my ability to ‘think outside the box’, a skill which is especially useful for clients wishing to stay in their current accommodation.
