I joined Ben Hoare Bell in 2005 after graduating from Northumbria University and qualified as a solicitor in 2007. I have the advantage of having practised exclusively in criminal defence work.
I am a qualified duty solicitor both for the police station and Magistrates Court and I have my higher rights criminal advocacy qualification.
I have extensive knowledge of dealing with a large range of cases both whilst under investigation at the police station and in proceedings at the Magistrates and Crown Court. I have dealt with cases in many areas of law from road traffic offences and low level public disorder to more serious assaults, robbery and murder. I have particular experience in fraud cases and serious sexual offences.
There is a danger that solicitors who are used to the ‘system’ assume that everyone else is. I know that this is not the case. Whether you are at court for the first time or you have been there many times before I am aware of how overwhelming and confusing it can be. I will explain the law and procedures to you at each stage in the case in a way that you will understand and I will help you to reach the best possible outcome.
I am very experienced at dealing with young and vulnerable people with a range of mental health issues which may involve approaching the case in a very different way. Every case is different and every client is different. I will use my experience to represent you and make you feel confident in the way your case is handled.
