Contact Information

Profile / Experience

I am a Consultant Solicitor in the Criminal Law Department of Duncan Lewis.

I have over 18 years’ experience in dealing with criminal defence matters at the highest level. I regularly appear before the local magistrates’ courts conducting bail and sentence hearings and have experience of preparing and supervising complex casework in relation to murder, assault, rape, kidnap and firearms offences. I have conducted fully contested magistrates’ trials and have obtained acquittals in numerous complex cases.

I am a police station and court duty solicitor which enables me to attend police stations to advise and assist people who would otherwise have no legal representation. I have been conducting these duties for over 14 years. Given my vast experience I have trained new lawyers in the full preparation of cases and advocacy.

I enjoy being hands on and having direct client contact with a keen focus in working to achieve the client’s best interests and results. My enthusiasm has helped build a large and impressive client following.
