Expert witness and expert advisor

As an expert witness, our evidence can be personally presented in court and the report will be written within your specified time scale in compliance with legal guidelines set out in practice direction 35. Our educational and child psychologists can work within a witness team alongside other expert witnesses, and answer questions put forward to them. Expert evidence will be the independent product of the expert psychologist you are working with and will be uninfluenced by the pressures of litigation. At HSR Psychology we ensure that all material facts will be considered, including those which may detract from our personal opinions. Our specialist educational and child psychologists are available to fulfil the role of expert advisor if their appearance in court is not required.

The independent and professional opinion provided by our specialists will be relevant to the areas of educational and child psychology and based on evidence of fact. Our psychologists are BPS (British Psychological Society), AEP (association of educational psychologists) and HCPC (health and care professions council) registered, covered by appropriate professional insurance and hold enhanced DBS checks.

In the case of a party appointed expert, if a discussion between experts is directed by the court then our experienced psychologists can fulfil this requirement.
