As a Criminal Defence Solicitor, I have vast experience in serious crime. I have a solid knowledge of all offences ranging from large scale drug conspiracies, Money Laundering, Fraud, serious Offences against the Person, dishonesty offences and sexual offences.
I regularly attend the police station and Magistrate’s court and I am a Duty Qualified Solicitor. I also manages a vast case load of serious, complex Crown court cases.
I previously led a Confiscation team which focused on complex Confiscation cases. I specialised in multi-million pound confiscation cases which often involved asset restraint and cash forfeiture.
I began my career in crime in 2009 and I have worked for several firms in different areas of London building up my excellent client care skills. My training began with a large caseload of Magistrates’ court, Crown Court, prison appeal and police station work. This gave me a vast experience of a variety of cases and procedures which I have developed throughout my career.
I was admitted to the Roll of Solicitors in 2012.
