I have attended court on several occasions to support my reports working with barristers and lawyers mainly at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

These reports cover a wide range of clients with spinal injury, brain damage, cerebral palsy, amputations and degenerate conditions including dementure, muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy and many gene deficiency disablements.
