Jon had gained many years experience in the field of criminal law before joining us in 2007. He is a Higher Courts Advocate and represents many of our clients before the Crown Court, thus ensuring continuity of service wherever possible.
Since appearing as an advocate in the Crown Court, Jon has secured acquittals for clients charged with a broad spectrum of offences including robbery, supply of drugs and perverting the course of justice. He has also appeared as Junior Counsel in serious cases including murder, manslaughter and attempted murder and has enjoyed successes arguing for shorter sentences for several of our clients in the Court of Appeal.
A former student of Wolverhampton University, Jon is a member of the Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme as well as the Police Station and Court Duty Solicitor Schemes.
He still appears before the Magistrates' Court when his Crown Court commitments allow and is a member of our police station advice and assistance team.
