Alastair Naismith - Solicitor

Year Admitted



Criminal Defence Solicitors

I graduated from Leicester University in 2010 with an honours degree in English Literature before attending Northumbria University to complete the Graduate Diploma in Law and then the Legal Practice Course.

I completed my training in a high street firm in Newcastle covering a wide variety of legal areas. In 2016 I achieved my Police Station Accreditation, allowing me to advise clients in the Police Station. Upon completion of my training in June 2018 I decided to specialise in Criminal Law.

I joined Ben Hoare Bell LLP as a newly qualified solicitor in July 2018 as part of the Criminal Defence team working in the Magistrates’ Courts and advising clients at the police station.

I became an Accredited Duty Solicitor in July 2019. I now regularly represent individuals as the Duty Solicitor either at court or at the police station.
