More About Kevin

In the Crown Court I deal with a full range of offences including serious assault, sexual offences drugs conspiracy fraud and serious driving offences. In the lower Courts I represent individuals whose driving licences are at risk as a result of accumulated penalty points.

I have 25 years experience representing people whatever their background or circumstances and whatever is they are alleged to have done. My role is not to judge and I treat all clients with the greatest of respect. I have always found that being able to develop a personal rapport and gain the trust of clients is key. This is especially important in situations when difficult advice has to be given. Personal attention and consistency of contact is something that clients really appreciate and usually leads to the best case outcomes.

When I am not at work, I love listening to all types of modern music as well as going to see live music from up and coming artists at small venues. I never miss a chance to eat top quality restaurant food or drink a glass of beer from local craft breweries. My main outdoor pastime is road cycling and I have completed a number of 100 mile ‘sportives’.
