Expert Testimony

I am increasingly asked by Police Forces and CPS to provide Expert Testimony to both support the development of the prosecution case and to, with the Courts agreement, provide some explanation of the threat response behaviours often observed in victims of sexual and domestic traumas.

I am able to provide both generic testimony (explaining potential victim behaviour in a given situation) and specific testimony within which I will comment on the individual complainant's response to the threat (s)he faced.

If you are considering either of the above options (or have another request regarding expert opinion) please contact me to discuss the needs of the specific case. 

To date, I have provided expert testimony to the police and/or CPS in the following force areas:
  • Devon and Cornwall Constabulary
  • Durham Constabulary
  • Hampshire Constabulary
  • North Wales Constabulary
  • Northumbria Constabulary
  • Sussex Constabulary
  • West Mercia Constabulary
  • West Yorkshire Constabulary

I have also provided reports / expert testimony to:
  • Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS), Scotland
  • Public Prosecution Service (PPS), Northern Ireland

Sample

I have included a downloadable sample/example of the kind of Generic Testimony that I am able to provide.

Cost

The cost will vary from case to case and will depend on the amount of work involved and the length of time that will be needed to prepare the statement. I charge:

  • £500* per day when I work from home.
  • £700* per day/part day (plus expenses) when I am required to travel (to attend court for example).

*cost is for guidance only and is not a quote.  Please contact me directly to discuss your specific requirements.
