I qualified in 1996 and have over twenty years of Courts and Tribunal experience. For many years I have acted for vulnerable and mentally disordered offenders, as well as children and young people caught up in the criminal justice system. As a result, I have gained significant insight into the plight of young people with SEND, ASD and drug induced psychosis. I am passionate about protecting and advancing the legal interests of the vulnerable and disadvantaged. More recently I have had personal experience of navigating the challenges faced by many parents. Dealing with the special educational needs of my own children has allowed me to see the complexities of SEND provisions from a parent’s perspective. I strive to offer all my clients a service which balances technical expertise with guidance and support.
I have many years’ experience in all aspects of Criminal Defence work, from simple road traffic matters through to complex fraud, drugs conspiracies, serious sexual offences and homicide. I regularly represent clients in Courts and Tribunals across the country. As a Higher Courts’ Advocate, I also regularly defend in the Crown Court. This experience, combined with my own personal experience, has led to a natural progression into the law governing Education and a passionate desire to ensure that all of our children receive the education that they need and deserve.
In the current climate of increased regulation within the private sector, I have also developed a growing practice in regulatory defence work. To date, I have defended prosecutions brought by the Health and Safety Executive, Food Standards Agency, Trading Standards, Information Commissioners Office and the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.
