I am a registered medical practitioner with special expertise in Clinical Forensic Medicine. During my training and practice as a Forensic Physician I have acquired an understanding of those principles of Law pertaining to Forensic Medicine and those police procedures concerning investigation and detention of individuals. My experience has been acquired in some 8,000 cases. My expertise spans the full range of clinical forensic medicine and includes: fitness for interview, the interpretation of injuries, all forms of assault and road traffic medicine.
As an Expert Witness I appreciate the criminal and civil procedures rules that operate in court in respect of evidence disclosure and presentation, the provision of expert opinion at pre-trial conference when giving evidence in court
