Caine has been the litigator in Crown Court cases and representing clients in the police station for over 20 years. He holds the PSQ permitting him to represent clients in the police station who have requested the Duty Solicitor.
Caine specialises in Crown Court casework, with experience of dealing with the full range of criminal matters from cases involving fatalities, serious violence such as armed robbery or aggravated burglary, serious drug offences involving supply and importation of Class A drugs, or complex frauds or customs and excise prosecution. Separately, he also has experience of Court Martial work.
His police station accreditation permits him to provide initial representation at the point of first arrest all the way through to the conclusion of a Crown Court trial. He prides himself on giving the best possible advice at all stages of proceedings.
The bulk of Caine’s work involves him in the preparation of large cases, working closely with one of our Higher Court Advocates or external counsel, depending on the needs of the case or preference of the client. Whilst Caine is based in Nottingham he is happy to travel the length and breadth of the country to represent his clients and has provided representation in numerous court centres from Newcastle-upon-Tyne to Brighton.
As a local man, Caine is a keen Forest fan and is able to appreciate the position that football fans may find themselves in if arrested or before the court. He has represented many clients who have faced allegations of football related violence including some cases of particular note. He has experience of preparing arguments to seek to avoid Football Banning Orders. Some information on these orders can be found here.
