Sophie Cohen - Solicitor
I completed the LLB (Hons) Exempting degree at Northumbria University in 2012, obtaining both a degree in Law and LPC.
I joined Ben Hoare Bell in January 2013 and have worked in a number of different departments. I completed my training contract at Ben Hoare Bell and during a seat in the Crime department I became a fully accredited Police Station Representative.
I qualified as a solicitor and joined the crime team in March 2017. I became an Accredited Duty Solicitor in October 2017. I now regularly represent individuals as the Duty Solicitor either at Court or at the Police Station.
I am involved in all aspects of Criminal Defence work from the Police Station to the Magistrates and Crown Court. In the Magistrates Court I conduct all aspects of cases from bail hearings through to trials. I also conduct Crown Court appeals. I deal with all types of offences from minor Road Traffic matters to more serious Indictable Only offences.
I am also a member of the Local Criminal Justice Board and represent the views and interests of the Defence in the North East at regular meetings.
