I qualified as a solicitor in 1990 and I am head of our Crime team in Derby. I have nearly 30 years' experience in all areas of criminal litigation.
I became a Partner in 1998 and deal with all types of criminal work, both publicly and privately funded, covering a wide range of cases, including prosecutions brought by various agencies, such as the Health and Safety Executive and motoring cases. I also specialise in youth court work and I am a member of the Derbyshire Youth Justice Board.
When I get free time, I can be found spending time with my wife and two boys and my main familial ally – Fergus the cat. I have also been known to spend time in the kitchen cultivating my culinary genius.
While my youthful agility and cunning on the squash court maintains optimum fitness levels, my appreciation of sport ends there as I am a Notts County fan!
