Myself and my colleagues offer medico-legal assessments for clients undergoing legal proceedings including criminal proceedings, family proceedings, personal injury and clinical negligence claims. We are happy to provide assessments of fitness to plead and litigation capacity. We can work within Legal Aid parameters or fees can be agreed for a particular piece of work. Given the current Coronavirus health crisis, assessments are being conducted via Skype wherever possible.
A comprehensive psychiatric report can generally be produced within four weeks of Janet Meehan & Partners receiving a formal letter of instruction.
Expert witnesses will attend Court where necessary.

Helping Psychiatrists develop a Medico-Legal Practice
Develop your own Medico-Legal Practice
Many Consultant Psychiatrists would like to add medico-legal practice to their portfolio or in some cases develop a career solely in the private sector. I set up my own medico-legal practice in 2015 and I understand that this can be daunting and that there can be hurdles to overcome.
I offer a service through Janet Meehan & Partners whereby I support and mentor Consultant Psychiatrists who are new to medico-legal practice. I help them with sourcing work, provide secretarial support, provide constructive feedback on psychiatric reports and performance in Court. I can also offer guidance on marketing, financial set-up and business development.
Whatever stage you are at, if you would like to find out more, please contact Michelle Mocan on 07495 533003 or complete the online form below.
