I undertake a range of work but in particular can assist on a Direct Access basis in relation to the following having undertaken work direct with the public for many years. Call me now to see how I can help.


I have fourteen years of experience in prosecuting and defending in all manner of criminal cases. I used to be a CPS lawyer. I have a particular specialism in road traffic work across the spectrum up to and including death by careless or dangerous driving. If you are facing a traffic allegation and risk points or losing your licence please call me. I am often retained for pre-charge advice and by professionals seeking to keep their reputation who have been charged with criminal offences or who are being investigated for potential criminal offences.

I am well versed in other areas including sex offences, domestic violence and other serious crime such as the new asset forfeiture orders and Proceeds of Crime Act proceedings. I also defend those involved in Insolvency Service Prosecutions and am able to give specialist advice and represent in this niche area. I was Acquisition International Motoring Barrister off the Year in 2014 and Acquisition International Best for Road Transportation Law in 2015. Do contact me on 020300720055 or for a brief conversation about your criminal matter.

Regulatory, academic appeals, licencing and disciplinary law

I have advised and represented a student barrister before the Inn Conduct Committee – one of the few lawyers to do have this experience. I also am one of the few lawyers to specialise in academic appeals for University Students (and indeed students facing expulsion from school). I have represented vets, medics and other students who have been accused of academic misconduct or who wish to put forward extenuating circumstances in relation to an allegation made by a University.

This is a highly technical and specialist area with very short time limits as set out by most University ordinances. I also undertake and advise on taxi and PHV licensing appeals in London and South East and can advise you on chances of success as well as represent you at hearings. If you wish me to assist you in appealing an examination decision, a regulatory / licencing matter or some other University disciplinary allegation please do contact me as soon as possible. See if it is an area I can assist you in. Call me on 02030720055 or email at

Housing and Property Law

I undertake a large amount of advisory work in relation to this area and in particular the law concerning Houses in Multiple Occupation and property licencing law having written the key book in this area - The Law of Houses in Multiple Occupation: A Practical Guide to HMO Proceedings. If you are facing Civil Penalties or a local authority prosecution, rent repayment applications or any other issue concerning this area please do contact me. I am one of the few lawyers who truly specialises in this niche and complex area.

Civil Law

I undertake a range of civil work and am able to assist you in County Court or High Court work. I am able to advise pre-litigation on the chances of success or during the process itself. I have experience in fast track and multi-track work and can be booked at short notice if available. Recent work includes defending a breach of privacy claim in the County Court and obtaining an indemnity costs order in a misconceived claim against a solicitor.

Please contact me on 02030720055 or to see how I can help.

I also advise on the Community Infrastructure Levy. I have undertaken work in this area and am happy to advise on the elements relating to this complex tax.
