We are a private limited company based in rural Norfolk, with experts all over the UK. We were established by Dr Jon Valentine and his wife Jane in November 2012. The company grew out of Jon’s medicolegal practice, which he had developed over 14 years with Jane’s dependable support.
In 2017, having expanded our pain management membership, we have sought to extend our range of medical specialisms with the introduction of plastic surgery and anaesthesia expert witness services.
