What I do

I am a Higher Courts Advocate working in crime. I am responsible for the Derby Crown Court operation. I therefore have responsibility for the preparation of the more serious criminal cases dealt with by Smith Partnership and also the presentation of those cases in Court as an advocate.

I keep a calm head and good judgement in difficult situations.

Being married with two sons keeps me occupied for most of the time but with a keen interest in sport when time allows.

Sorry for the delay in sending across my upmost thanks and appreciation for your care and support in what has been the most frightening journey of our lives. From voluntary police interview to the final not guilty verdict. As a family we never envisaged being placed in the situation that unfolded. Thank you for being patient and listening [...]. We will be eternally grateful.
