Profile

I qualified in 1989. Between 1990-1997 I worked for the Crown Prosecution Service as a senior crown prosecutor, before joining a private practice where I was a partner between 1997 and 2016. In April 2017 I joined the criminal department at McMillan Williams.

I deliver quality legal advice and am fully accessible to my clients outside office hours.

As a former senior crown prosecutor I have an advantage over many of my peers in that I understand the decision making process of the Crown Prosecution Service and the police and am able to use this knowledge in my current practice to anticipate problems and likely outcomes.

Outside of the work environment i am a keen reader and jazz enthusiast.

I am also a member of the London Criminal Court Solicitors Association and the Criminal Law Solicitor Association.
