Kelly Parsons (formerly Shaw)
Kelly Parsons is the Head of our fast growing Prison law Department.
Kelly has over 20 years’ experience in criminal law specialising in Prison Law and Crown Court litigation. She is also a qualified Police Station Representative.
The qualifications and experience gained over that time have allowed her to take a ‘cradle to grave’ approach, allowing her to see cases through from their initial investigation stage with the Police to conclusion at the Crown Court, later representing clients at Parole, Recall and Adjudication hearings within a prison setting.
Kelly has experience of dealing with the full range of criminal cases including murder, complex drug conspiracies, historic and current sexual offences, alongside serious violence and dishonesty allegations such as burglary and armed robbery.
Clients value Kelly’s thorough approach to every case. She is extremely sympathetic and personable meaning that both the client and their family build a good rapport with her. She has a history of dealing with clients with mental health issues and also youths who find themselves within the criminal justice system. Kelly will always go the extra mile to assist clients during some of the most mentally and physically exhausting times of their lives.
Whether she is representing a client in front of a parole panel, in-house advocate or independent counsel, clients can be confident that Kelly will work independently and obtain all the relevant information and evidence to present their best case.
