Criminal Duty Solicitor & Higher Court Advocate
How can I help you?

Throughout my 30 years plus career, I have dealt exclusively with all aspects of Criminal LawMy role is to represent clients when they appear at the Crown Court, for plea, trial or sentence. I also attend at police stations and the Magistrates Court, so I can look after client’s cases from the very outset to its conclusion. I have a wealth of experience and pride myself in dealing with clients’ needs and problems in a sensitive compassionate manner. I pride myself on going that “extra mile” to achieve the best outcome on my clients behalf.

A little about me.

Since 1980, I have dedicated the whole of my career to working for defence solicitors within our criminal justice system. I am passionate about the law and how it operates and its impact on my clients, on a daily basis. I get immense pleasure from doing a good job and making a positive difference for our clients.

My experience.

Throughout my career I have worked for and alongside a host of incredible, talented and dedicated defence lawyers. I have learned enormously from them all. I qualified as a solicitor in 1999, then became a Duty Solicitor in 2000 and then was granted Higher Rights qualification in July 2006 (this allows me to be the Advocate for clients in the Crown Court and the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division). I use these qualifications extensively as part of an immensely dedicated team in our Criminal Department.
