Profile / Experience
I am a Trainee Solicitor in the Crime Department. I have extensive experience in cases which have been decided both in the Magistrates Court and the Crown Court. I have had conduct of cases involving individuals charged with serious offences such as ABH and GBH as well as other aspects of crime including extradition cases, historical sexual offences, possession of controlled drugs with intent to supply, and firearm cases, which require analysing complex evidence. Serious cases involve thorough preparation, client care and sound judgement which I always deliver to all my clients.
I am experienced in acting for clients from all walks of life including the most demanding and challenging clients. I have been instructed by clients who had previously been let down by their previous legal team and I have made sure they get the best representation as per their instructions. Although I do not have my higher rights yet, I have gone to the extra mile to make an application to adjourn my client’s trial at the Crown Court as his defence counsel had withdrawn from acting which left him with no counsel during Trial.
I have a successful record of challenging the crown’s prosecution case which have been discontinued on the basis of having insufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction. I have instructed and worked with a number of experts such as facial mapping experts /voice recognition/ fingerprint experts to assist the defence case. I undertake both private and legal aid cases.
Probationary police station representative – I represent clients at any police station in the UK for advice (i.e. interview under caution) regarding summary and either way offences. I am in the process of becoming a fully accredited police station representative.
