Expert in Mind - Mental Health Expert of the Year
Expert in Mind, run by Company Director, Zofia Ludwig, is an award-winning medico-legal company, specialising in mental health. We are experts in uniting professionals from the legal and medical sectors and we offer a unique personal service which really makes the difference.
We provide Expert Witness reports, written by our esteemed panel of Psychologists and Psychiatrists, for Court proceedings in all areas of law including Family, Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence, Criminal, Housing and Immigration. Our panel of Experts is handpicked for their experience, expertise and reputation within their field.
Expert in Mind delivers outstanding administration support to both Experts and Legal Professionals. Our skill for matching the right expert to each case saves precious time in the diaries of busy Experts, and Legal Professionals, allowing time to be spent on ensuring the best outcome for the client. Each Expert is assigned a personal case manager, with whom any aspect of a case can be discussed from start to finish. We are not a call centre, nor an agency, our service is much more personal.
Our 14 strong (soon to be 18!) team’s motto is, ‘Teamwork makes the dreamwork!’ We have strong values which the entire team demonstrate every day; to be Positive, Respectful, Professional and Committed. This is the core of Expert in Mind.
The feedback received by our loyal clients for whom we are their first point of call speaks volumes:
“As a solicitor in the legal field, it is important to have access to medical experts who can provide medico legal reports on short notice under legal aid rates. I have been instructing Expert In Mind for many years. They are always fast, efficient, have a wide range of experts and the reports prepared are always to a professional standard. The staff are both friendly and always respond to any query efficiently. I would highly recommend them.”
We have been nominated for, and won several prestigious awards during our 13 years in business. Most recent accolades include the Lawyer Monthly Award, being a Finalist for Personal Injury Provider of the Year and Finalist for CEO of the Year.
Our Business Manager, Sophie, was finalist for Young Achiever of the Year at the Personal Injury awards. Zofia, Company Director, was a finalist for Business Woman of the Year at the Women of the Year awards. She was 1 of only 8 finalists selected from over 500 nominees. Another outstanding achievement was being featured in the 2020 Law & Justice Parliamentary Review highlighting Best Practice, a true honour and very proud moment for Expert in Mind!
As for many, COVID-19 meant that we faced many challenges as a company and an industry. The team worked from home for many months and although we were apart, we ensured that we continued to work together as a strong team. In addition, assessments and court hearings which were usually conducted face to face with many experts used to travelling around the country, were moved to remote assessments. This was quite the adaption, especially for many technophobes! The first month we saw a noticeable reduction in cases, however, from that point on fought to survive and have seen amazing growth, in fact our most successful year ever!
