My experience is extensive and the results I achieve reflect the commitment to my clients and quality of work produced. I have spent my entire legal career practicing criminal law, both as a crown prosecutor, and as a defence lawyer. Throughout my time, working as a prosecutor, I prosecuted many high-profile cases and gained the inside knowledge that now gives me the cutting edge in defending my clients. I know and understand police and crown tactics and can use that to your advantage in knowing the strategies involving in obtaining the best possible outcome for your matter.

With my extensive criminal law knowledge and experience, I am able to fully identify issues and defences in your case.

Once I have identified whether your rights were violated, and the errors the police have made, the remedies that I can seek from the court range from an exclusion of the evidence to a stay of proceeding to a withdrawal of the charges.
