What people say;

“I have known Gavin as an expert for almost 20 years. He has written numerous medico-legal reports in that time for clients, many of whom have suffered serious injuries. His reports are uniformly excellent. They are well set out, easily readable (with glossary of terms) and the diagnosis and prognosis carefully considered and explained. In conference Gavin is able to answer without difficulty the questions raised of him. Importantly, clients are invariably satisfied with his examination and reporting on their injuries. I have no hesitation in recommending Gavin as an expert to both claimant and defendant law firms.”

Simon Allen, Former National Practice Head of Personal Injury, Slater and Gordon Lawyers

“It is a pleasure to recommend Gavin with whom I have worked for the past 20 years. Gavin is a caring highly motivated hand surgeon with a flair for producing detailed and well created clinical negligence and employers’ liability reports.”
