I specialise in bringing claims for clients who have been the subject of unlawful acts committed by police officers and by the state. I bring civil claims in the County Court and High Court for assault; false imprisonment; malicious prosecution; violations of the Human Rights Act; and discrimination under the Equality Act.
Since 2001, I have acted successfully for clients in complex civil jury trials, in addition to securing many damages settlements over the years for the wrongs committed against them. I also assist them in bringing complaints about police misconduct to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
I represent clients who have been unlawfully detained by the government under immigration powers. In addition, I act for clients who have been assaulted whilst in prison, either by prison officers or other inmates, well as challenging their conditions of detention.
I have brought several successful Court of Appeal cases establishing innovative changes in the law.
In 2016, I was shortlisted for the Law Society Excellence Awards in the 'Human Rights Lawyer of the Year' category.
I have always had an interest in human rights and civil liberties. The law is changing and developing and being at the cutting edge of the area is tremendously fulfilling.
Obtaining positive results and vindication for clients against the most imposing and heavily resourced opponents.
Working in a large team where we can share ideas, discuss tactics and have the support to deliver a first class service to clients.
I am a keen fitness fanatic, taking up HIIT training. I also enjoy gardening, reading and spending time with my family.
