"I think Expert in Mind provide an excellent service. As a firm which does largely legal aid work (on fixed fees) it is very helpful to have an organisation who do the “leg work” for you. They have a large database of experts and I have found the quality of the experts provided extremely good and the service from Expert in Mind exceptional."

"I run a small criminal defence practice in Brighton and have many clients who are youths. I have instructed Dr Blincow to assess a number of my young clients. I was impressed with his CV, he has exactly the right qualifications, and experience and is very well respected, having headed CAMHS. In addition clients report back that they are relieved to meet a professional who clearly knows what they are doing and has an ability to get vulnerable youths to open up to him.
His reports have provided an excellent summary of the defendant's history and assessments of their ability to effectively participate in proceedings. His reports also have a common sense approach as to how a particular disability or cumulative difficulties actually impact the young person.
I would say that his reports have been life changing for some of my clients."
Sarah Smith - 07/05/2020
"We found Dr Bose to be approachable and sensitive to the time constraints that are often imposed by Courts for the filing of expert evidence. Dr Bose ensures, wherever possible, that these time restrictions are met and his reports are detailed, accurate and well-informed and, in our experience, are highly regarded by lawyers."

"I have been using Expert in Mind for several years in a range of complex care cases and have found their Dr Blincow in particular to be extremely professional, insightful and empathetic in assessing the comprehensive needs of children and their families, to write clear and focused court reports and to really go further than most experts in giving a clear and comprehensive account and opinion, whilst also being reflective and fair in the witness box when required.
They are my experts of choice as a busy solicitor and advocate. Their cost and time estimates are accurate and the standard of the reports produced are excellent."

"I have worked consistently for Expert in Mind as a psychologist for the last 8 years. During this time I have been supplied with all of the work that I could manage alongside my NHS job. The support from Expert in Mind for the work that I have done has been consistently excellent, including arranging all my appointments, and sorting things out when arrangements go wrong. All of the staff are friendly, polite and helpful and any concern or problem has always been dealt with immediately. It has been particularly helpful to me to deal mainly with one member of staff, who gets to know me and the way that I work well, and so can support and anticipate what I need. I would highly recommend Expert in Mind as an agency to work for, they compare very well against others that I have done work for in the past."

It definitely makes my life as an Expert much easier and enables the whole process from beginning to end to run much more smoothly for me and also for those instructing me."
