Testimonials

Dr Marion Bates produced a well constructed report with a very good analysis.  I would recommend her to other solicitors.  

Solicitor, Thurrock County Council

Dr Sarah Tonks was very clear and concise response to the questions and saved considerable time that would otherwise have been wasted in oral evidence

Legal Officer, Bristol County Council

We are very pleased with the expertise provided by Dr Dowsett in the course of one of our cases. Psychology Experts were extremely helpful and attentive to our needs, from dealing with our initial enquiry courteously to the prompt delivery of the final report. We would have no hesitation in returning to Psychology Experts for future expert instructions

Solicitor,  Crane and Staples Solicitors

My client department found Dr Treisman’s report challenging and helpful as to the future planning for this young person…Dr Treisman was thorough in her preparation and prepared her report earlier than she was requested to - which again assisted enormously

Many thanks for your offices assistance and that of Dr Desautels. The LA was most assisted by his work

Dr Derry’s analysis of the mother was extremely insightful and accurate and in fact, many of his predictions have already transpired by the time of this hearing
