John qualified as a solicitor in 1988, and has focussed on criminal defence work since 1990. He has previously managed the criminal department of his previous employer, and retains significant management responsibility. John undertook a key role in developing both the Ilkeston and Derby offices.
Joining VHS solicitors in 2003, John brought with him what was even then a substantial knowledge of criminal law and practice, and has built on that sound base in the intervening period.
John currently specialises in providing advice and representation at both police stations and the Magistrates Court from our Derby office. It will be obvious to all that deal with him that John believes passionately in the importance of justice being done and being seen to be done within the justice system. That fight for justice is always undertaken with client care being place to the fore.
