Waiting List

Civil Cases

These are booked on a ‘first come, first served basis’. The waiting list regulates itself. If it is too long, instructions go down, and the waiting list shortens. As soon as it shortens, instructions increase and it lengthens. It usually varies between 2 and 4 months depending mainly on the time of year. (To find out current waiting list email ).

In order to ensure a balance of claimant and defendant work we do not always allocate the next available appointment.

Some civil cases are genuinely urgent and I do my best to respond accordingly.
(To find out about urgent appointments email ).

As I have not widely publicised my availability in London, I can usually see people in London more quickly.

I use my room at King’s Lynn on an as required basis. Often I can see people there relatively quickly.

Criminal and family cases:

I have no waiting list. I usually see people within about six weeks.

In family cases I am conscious of the significance of timescales for developing children and try to accommodate them.

I rarely see criminal and family cases other than at The Grange or in solicitors’ offices.

“(T)he psychiatrist's evidence (is) not necessary to tell them how an ordinary person who (is) not suffering from mental illness (is) likely to react to the stresses and strains of life” (Turner [1975] 1 All ER 70-75)
