  • Although I am part of Scott-Moncrieff & Associates Ltd, solicitors of 88 Kingsway London, I practise from my home office in North Norfolk. Where possible I visit my clients in their homes. I can also take on cases in other parts of the country including London. I have been a solicitor since 1971. I have experience of a wide range of legal problems but I specialise in clinical negligence and major injury cases. I have been involved in running a number of national cases - including: Opren (a painkiller that was associated with a number of deaths and serious injuries), Gulf War (claims by the veterans of the first Gulf War that they were injured by other medications given to them), Organophosphate Sheep Dips, and MMR vaccines. I have always been interested in medical cases. I have many contacts and support to assist with medical issues: my wife is a medico legal researcher. One of my step daughters is a neurosurgeon in Melbourne Australia and another is a community nurse. My daughter's husband is a neurologist. We have an extensive medical library at home. I have taken on (and won) medical cases involving a wide range of problems. I am a Senior Litigator and an Accredited Clinical Negligence Specialist with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. I have a special interest in head injury cases because another of my step-daughters suffered horrendous injuries as a result of a medical accident when she was aged five. She is now in her 30s and remains seriously physically and mentally disabled. As one of her carers I therefore have personal experience in dealing with all the bureaucratic and support issues and the constant uphill struggle in achieving appropriate levels of medical treatment for someone with severe disabilities. I appear regularly on BBC Radio Norfolk to discuss legal matters and in my spare time I am a freelance writer. In 2017 a book of my writings was published: The Savage Poodle.
