I qualified as a solicitor more than 30 years ago, specialising in criminal defence and private client work.

I have represented many clients in high profile criminal cases. Notable cases include successful defence of murder, manslaughter and assisted suicide, historic abuse cases, rape and indecent assaults.  I have also dealt with complicated and high value cases involving fraud.  I have significant experience in representing clients in wide sphere of road traffic offences from the most serious, such as causing death by dangerous driving, to the less serious such as driving without due care and attention.
