I have used Dr. Bray recently for a plaintiff personal injury file and found his report to be helpful in bringing that claim to a successful resolution. Dr. Bray was very accessible, his report was timely, and his account was reasonable. I would have no hesitation involving him on my files in the future.

Having known Dr. Bray for in-excess of 40 years I believe that I can endorse him for his abilities in both the dental and expert witness arenas. I have seen him work through “thick and thin” and with this edge, believe him to be an excellent resource. He is the expert to go to at times of stress, which can often be associated with legal cases.
Mr. George Harker JP.
Former magistrate Derby County Court.UK.
I was introduced to Dr. Stephen Bray through a mutual patient / client who suffered injuries in an “all too common” rear-ender collision. Her injuries included an injury to her jaw resulting in a chronic TMJ condition which was treated by Dr. Bray. I was very appreciative of the expert medical-legal opinions Dr. Bray provided in that case to assist in achieving fair, financial compensation for my client.

Understanding that Dr. Bray provides forensic dental expert witness services, I was recently able to utilize his expertise in a personal injury file involving a client of mine. She had experienced injuries resulting in a TMJ condition. Dr. Bray provided a well-written, timely report that assisted in resolving the case. My client spoke highly of Dr. Bray too and I would not hesitate to use his Dental Expert Witness services in the future.

Dr. Bray has provided work for me on a number of occasions. We have discussed these cases and I have found him to be well experienced with a strong knowledge base.

Mr. Dairn Shane
Preszler Law, Vancouver, BC.
Our firm is a Personal Injury focused firm on Vancouver Island with two practitioners. When a client presented with complex dental problems requiring an opinion with regard to causation and appropriate treatment, we turned to Dr. Stephen Bray. We found his ability to distill the dental diagnosis and prognosis into a useable and understandable report for help with our ongoing litigation to be exactly what we were looking for. We would be happy to use his services again and would recommend him for anyone needing an expert in the field of dentistry.
