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.
