Profile / Experience

I am a Consultant Solicitor-Advocate with Duncan Lewis. I specialise in acting for clients in a broad range of both privately funded and publicly funded (legal aid) criminal defence matters and I am often involved in back to back complex trials nationwide.

I act for clients in all matters, ranging from defending road traffic offences to money laundering and murder. Many of the cases that I have personally conducted have attracted national media attention over the years, and I frequently contribute to industry articles. I am frequently instructed in the most serious cases, and I have successfully appeared before the Court of Appeal on numerous occasions, including in 2016, before LJ Levison QC. Further to my recent notable cases, I have personally secured 6 separate summary trials within the last 12 months.

I have a diverse practice, and aside from major crime, I am often instructed in regulatory matters, and have successfully and repeatedly represented businesses, and companies at the magistrates courts, who have been summoned by the local authority.

For those clients that struggle to communicate in English, I am fluent Greek.
