His Honour Judge Dight CBE, Resident and Designated Civil Judge, Central London and Mayor’s & City of London Courts, concluded that the second edition of ‘A Practical Guide to the Small Claims Track’ is "essential reading … for all practitioners who handle small claims [and that] the judges of the county court (whether salaried or fee-paid) would benefit considerably by reading this book and keeping it by their side”.  The second edition received four judicial testimonials.
Dominic can be instructed directly, without having to involve a solicitor. He is registered on the Direct Access Portal. Dominic is also a member of Advocate (the Bar’s national charity), matching him with members of the public who need help, are unable to obtain legal aid, and cannot afford to pay.

He was also researcher in construction law at a leading set of barristers’ chambers, public international law at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, and national implementation measures (nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation, development and use of chemical weaponry) at the Verification Research, Training and Information Centre.
