Single Joint Expert Reports
My expert witness reports assist UK courts by providing impartial and independent opinions on questions relating to vehicle valuations. My reports provide important evidence to help the judge reach their decision. Solicitors often decide how to proceed with a case based on my expert opinion.
As a vetted member of the UK Register of Expert Witnesses, I am regularly instructed as a Single Joint Expert for divorce valuations in the Family Court, as an Expert Witness in County Court civil cases and in criminal cases for the Crown Court. All reports are highly detailed and meet the requirements of CPR Part 35 or FPR Part 25 and the associated Practice Directions.

Expert Witness Reports – Civil and Criminal
As a car valuations specialist with almost forty years of motor trade history, I am frequently engaged to put my detailed experience across the breadth of the motor industry to work on issues of quantum. This often includes challenging previous valuation evidence from less qualified sources.
My experience spans a huge range of cases, including supercars, classic tractors, cherished registration plates, motorhome and military vehicle valuations, write-off valuations for ombudsman use, commercial vehicles unfit for purpose, investigations into stolen racing cars, the financial effect of uncertain provenance, dimunition of value on accident-damaged sports cars and Proceeds of Crime valuations.
My clients include insurers, lenders and car dealer groups, with case values into the millions of pounds. I have also worked with Trading Standards officers and public prosecutors, supporting criminal prosecutions.
Expert Witness Reports conform to CPR Part 35 or FPR Part 25. Reports include vehicle and salvage valuations, provenance and history research, market trends for the rarest vehicles, research into comparables, disputes over restoration work and repairs, mis-described sold vehicles, insolvency and vehicle identification. If there is a question around valuation, I am interested.
