Gavin has been a qualified solicitor and Duty Solicitor for 12 years, working in a wide range of criminal matters at the Police Station, Magistrates Court and Crown Court stage of cases.
During that period Gavin has found a particular interest and specialism in the criminal law as it affects protests and marches. This can involve the policing of university and political protests, as well as protests relating to general animal welfare or alleged breaches of the law.
Gavin has represented clients interviewed or charged as a result of their alleged activities including anti-fur demonstrations and hunt monitoring. This is an area of law where solicitors are instructed as a result of word of mouth and trust built on previous client representation. As a result the continued instruction of Gavin is a ringing endorsement of his ability.
Gavin prides himself on his meticulous attention to detail. His robust defence of clients on all matters makes him a formidable advocate and police station representative. Gavin is not shy to raise objections when required and forcefully protect his client’s rights at all times.
Clients are pleased to deal with him. His advice is always simple to understand and delivered with a personal touch, be that in the police station, Magistrates’ or Crown Courts.
