I am a Chartered Legal Executive with over 40 years experience of Criminal Law. I joined Amphlett Lissimore in 2008 as a member of their Bagshaws Crime Department and was previously with Carpenter & Co Solicitors for 30 years specialising in Criminal litigation. My clients are important to me and over the years I have built up a large client base dealing with youths, adults and vulnerable people preparing cases in both Magistrates’ and Crown Court proceedings.

I am also a Police Station Accredited Representative, so I can help people who are arrested and detained at a Police Station, and can give advice and assistance in order to obtain the best possible outcome including avoiding Court proceedings or any action being taken.   

I have experience in areas of serious crime, Murder, attempted Murder, fraud, rape and sexual assault, kidnap and drugs supply. I have prepared and been involved in many cases of Historic Sexual Abuse, grooming and possessing indecent images of children.     

Notable cases

R v I (1988) - High Profile serial rape case involving over 30 victims in the London area reported on TV and in all major newspapers,  preparing for trial and instructing experts and QC at the Old Bailey

R v R (2019) - Successful application made at trial to remove case from jury due to issue with ID evidence namely poor quality mobile phone footage of alleged incident resulting in formal not guilty verdicts being entered.

R v P (2019) - Successful acquittal after Crown Court trial in relation to charge of S.18 Assault GBH involving gang related stabbing of 16 year old male where CCTV and forensic evidence were main issues. 

R v G (2018) - Successful acquittal after Crown Court  trial in relation to multi handed case of Conspiracy to Supply Class A drug covering a large geographical area.

R v D (2018) - One of the Crown Court cases regarding an allegation of historic Rape heard in London which were discontinued by the CPS due to lack of disclosure which undermined their case. After many hearings when the defence requested disclosure of the Social Services records the Crown finally traced the old records and after reviewing their file they discontinued the proceedings against the defendant.
