Public and Private Family Law

Allen Associates has a dedicated Family Team consisting of psychiatrists from each subspecialty as well as a child psychologist and an adult psychologist. Each is highly qualified and experienced team in medico-legal work, able to produce compliant and timely reports and to give evidence in court.

These are some of the areas we report on:

  • Parenting
  • Contact
  • Mental Capacity
  • Emotional & Sexual Abuse
  • Domestic Violence
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder/Aspergers
  • Adult ADHD
  • Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Alcoholism
  • Drug Abuse
  • Gambling Addiction

We are pleased that the courts have started to recognise the benefits of team working. We have received a number of instructions where the judge puts the name of Allen Associates on the order rather than the named expert and we are very happy with this. Although we are all independent, working together is better for your clients and saves the taxpayer money. We are happy to help you make the decision about which expert or combination of experts is right for the task in consultation with yourself.
