"Dr Gill I'Anson has been the expert of choice in several recent care cases in which I have been instructed. She is very clear both in her Reports and orally with first class back up and administration. In a recently concluded case where Dr I’Anson gave oral evidence, after the filing of her Report, the Court described her as "clear and compelling".

"I found Dr l'Anson, and the support staff, very helpful. Communication during the assessment process was very good. Dr l’Anson was flexible and responsive to what were changing circumstances and instructions. The final report was most helpful, and filed on time. I would not hesitate to re-instruct on another matter."
