What my clients say

I joined Shepherd Harris on 26th March 2015, I am a Criminal Defence Lawyer and Commissioner for Oaths having been admitted as a Fellow of the Chartered Legal Executive.  I have also been granted Advocacy Rights in criminal proceedings and hold Duty Solicitor status.

Criminal Law


I deliver a high standard of service and my clients’ needs are always a priority when dealing with cases.

I deal with cases from the investigation stage which is a fundamental part of a case as the advice given upon the limited information provided by the police is crucial as to the outcome; whether no further action is taken or criminal proceedings are instigated.​


I also have Advocacy Rights to represent clients in both the Youth and Magistrates Courts. I have dealt with a range of offences, from petty to major crime, for example, minor thefts and assaults, firearm offences, attempt murder, serious assaults, conspiracy to commit murder/kidnap, rape, drug offences and proceeds of crime act cases. I also undertake Road Traffic Offences
