Owner / Principal Solicitor / Business Manager
I have been engaged full time in the legal system since September 1974. I began my career in the MagistratesÍ Court and subsequently qualified as a solicitor in 1992. I have been in private practice since April 1996.
I started my own firm in 2008 and this firm is now one of the principle firms in Sussex, providing legal services in criminal defence.
Over the years I have had experience of every possible alleged crime, from relatively minor matters in the MagistratesÍ Court through to the most serious crimes of rape, murder and even on one occasion air piracy (hijacking).
I pride myself that I can bring to bear over 40 years of experience to place my clients in the best possible position to be advised and guided through sometimes the most complex and grave allegations.
