What I do

I joined Smith Partnership in 1991 and became a Partner in 1998. I am the Branch Manager.

I have dealt exclusively with Criminal Defence work whilst with the firm. I have particular experience and expertise in representing the young and vulnerable.

I have a well-developed practice in the defence of motoring prosecutions, regularly dealing with cases funded privately by individuals and insurance companies.


I head an invaluable team whose day-to-day commitment maintains our enviable reputation. My colleagues never cease to be cheered by my sparkling sense of humour.

I think that I have a particularly patient and compassionate approach to my court work which is especially suited to my youth client base.

I am married to Nikki and have 2 sons. The bulk of the attention I receive within the household is from Fergus, our cat.

I have a particular love for food and drink, spending much of my spare time in the kitchen.

I have a keen interest in football, a statement brought into question by my life-long support for Notts County.

I continue to play squash with an agility that belies my advanced years.
