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.

Described in the Legal 500 as a key figure in the outstanding criminal department and part of the dedicated and hard-working team of extremely knowledgeable criminal practitioners.
