Applied Psychology Solutions work with experienced Clinical Psychologists around the UK and all will consider deferred fees for direct solicitor work. We offer remote and face to face appointments. We are not an agency, but provide administrative services for experts and assist by connecting experts with instructing parties (for no additional fee). Our experts specialise in civil litigation, but many also work in family courts.
