Profile / Experience
I am an Accredited Police Station Legal Representative and Trainee Solicitor in the Criminal Law Department.
I appreciate and value the importance of client care and instruction during the Criminal Justice proceedings and, having a reputation for my high quality work, methodically ensure the best outcomes for my clients. This involves my eagle-eyed analysis and broad connection base with reputable experts, barristers and specialists.
I have a particular interest in challenging disclosure from the outset to increase the likelihood of a No Further Action at the Police Station where cases can be won or lost and a Discontinuance if the matter is taken to Court.
I have extensive experience in a range of criminal defence cases from public order and drug offences to sexual assault, fraud and murder. I also handle cases concerning psychoactive substances.
I have significant experience dealing with clients who have mental health illnesses and/or are classed by law as "dangerous". I deal with both private and public funded clients building a respectable rapport with clients from all different walks of life; including defending youths, experts and high profile clients with press coverage.
I am mindful and appreciate the stressful period my clients are facing when representing the most vulnerable and so I carefully guide, explain and provide clear legal advice that is understandable to all.
I have experience of handling matters at the Police Station, Magistrates and Crown Court. I proactively attend the police station, prison and/or court depending on the stage of the client's case to provide initial advice, guidance, take instructions and most importantly support them throughout their case.
As a Police Station Legal Representative I protect and advance the rights of my clients of what can potentially be the start of their case.
I speak Kurdish (Kurmanji) and instruct the necessary interpreter further to client needs.
