Laura Clarson

Laura Clarson

Laura first worked for VHS in 2006 during a placement year on her degree course. She began working full time as a Crown Court litigator in 2008 following graduation and then obtained her PSQ permitting her to represent any client facing any offence at the police station.

Laura has gained substantial experience over this period in all types of case. She builds a good rapport with clients and their families, particularly with younger clients. Anyone who meets her in relation to a case will know that she truly cares about the outcome and securing the best result for the client.

Laura passed her Legal Practice Course in the autumn of 2018 and completed her training in the summer of 2020.  She qualified as a solicitor in August 2020 and as a Duty Solicitor later that year.

Her patience means that she is ideally suited to deal with those clients who may need extra care and attention, and all clients will be won over by her positive and optimistic approach to every case.

R v F Public Disorder. Large scale public disorder between traveller families resulted in an 8 day trial. The client was acquitted despite forensic evidence on his footwear connecting him with the incident.

R v S Cannabis Production. Client accepted responsibility for a cannabis grow of over 150 plants with some cropped for onward distribution. A suspended sentence was imposed.

R v T and another. Both clients faced a serious allegation of aggravated burglary involving the taking of weapons into an occupied house and violence being inflicted on the occupants. Detailed preparation of the case allowed representations to be made to the Crown and no evidence was offered and the cases dismissed.

R v D Trafficking. A 15 year old was prosecuted for his role as a gardener for cannabis production. Careful enquiry demonstrated that the client was likely to have been illegally trafficked into this country for criminal purposes and as a result the prosecution accepted that it wasn’t in the public interest to pursue the case.

R v S Youth Defendant. A 15 year old defendant was before the Crown Court for allegations of kidnap, false imprisonment and assault of another youth. Case eventually compromised with a plea to false imprisonment and the case was sent back to the Youth Court for a non-custodial sentence.

R v N Rape. Detailed analysis of mobile phone material persuaded the prosecution that there was no realistic prospect of conviction and the case was dropped.
