My general background as a chartered engineer and as a Managing Director of a Construction company for over 30 years enables me to perform the role of an Expert Witness. This role is assisted by my work as a lay magistrate. What I can offer
I am asked by claimants and defendants (usually following a recommendation from a tour operator, insurance company or solicitors practice) to act as Expert Witness.
I understand that as an Expert Witness I have a duty to the Court and that my expert evidence should be (and should be seen to be)
The independent product of the expert
Uninfluenced by the exigencies of litigation
That the Court should be provided with independent assistance by the expert witness, in the form of an unbiased, objective opinion, in relation to matters within my expertise
That an expert witness should never assume the role of advocate
