Clients are provided with a detailed psychological report and an executive summary, which draws out the key findings of the medico-legal report in a format that can be quickly understood by those with no formal training in psychology or law. Our medicolegal psychologist has worked on numerous high-profile cases. Our client base ranges from celebrities and multimillionaires to individuals who have severe learning impairments and are of limited means. We pride our self in delivering the same high-quality service to all of our clients, irrespective of their social standing.

We carry out a broad range of medico-legal investigations including risk assessments, parenting assessments, suggestibility assessments, mental capacity assessments, learning disability assessments, cognitive assessments, ADHD assessments and autism assessments. Medicolegal psychologist assessments typically include results of psychometric tests but also observations and analysis of documents. Our skill is in understanding how the law impacts on the issue that the medico-legal psychologist has been asked to assess and ensuring the medicolegal psychological assessment is robust.

What Age Groups Are Suitable for Medicolegal Psychological Assessments?

Advanced Assessments carries out medico-legal assessments for individuals below the age of one year right up to individuals in their 90s and beyond. Fewer psychometric tests are available for children under the age of five. Children under the age of five would not have passed through all of the necessary developmental milestones to diagnose some conditions accurately because children develop at different rates.

Nevertheless, in cases of severe impairment, there may be enough evidence to carry out a medicolegal psychologist assessment. Similarly, there are less objective psychometric tests available for adults over the age of 70. In these cases, the medicolegal psychologist would use a range of other techniques such as gaining information from individuals that know the person to be assessed well and carrying out structured interviews.

What Support is Available After A Medico-Legal Psychologist Assessment?

The medicolegal report is submitted by our expert witness psychologist; you will have the opportunity to ask any further questions of the medico-legal consultant to clarify matters in the report. Where the report is commissioned by a single party our expert witness psychologist will be available to meet with that party alone to discuss the report in more detail. In cases where the medicolegal psychologist report is commissioned by more than one party, the expert witness psychologist would carry out a joint meeting or correspond jointly with all parties. This will ensure that no one party has an advantage over another.

In some cases, it will be necessary to serve supplemental reports once the medicolegal psychologist report has been reviewed by the opposing party.

Our expert witness psychologist is always willing to attend court to expand on the findings in the medicolegal report. However, most cases settle on the strength of the medico-legal report without the medicolegal psychologist needing to attend court to give evidence.
