What I do

I qualified as a solicitor in 2007 and joined Smith Partnership in 2012. I am a Partner in our Crime team in Staffordshire and have nearly 30 years' experience in all aspects of criminal law. My role is extremely varied and I advise and assist clients on a wide range of matters both at the police station and at court. I head up the High Profile/Serious Crime Department. I work in conjunction with Derek Angus. Although I cover all areas of criminal law, my main focus is on serious and complex cases ranging from large scale conspiracies, drugs cases, rapes, murders, wounding, Proceeds of Crime and more. I attend on matters throughout the UK.

I am a workaholic and can frequently be found reading evidence, sending emails and speaking with clients outside of normal office hours.

My key interests are weight training, supporting Aston Villa and watching movies.
