Qualifying as a solicitor in 1983, Nick has always specialised in criminal defence work.
He is a Duty Solicitor and is a leading member of the Criminal Sub-Committee of the Derby and District Law Society. Additionally he represents the interests of the local profession as a member of the Criminal Justice Board for Derbyshire.
As well as undertaking these roles on behalf of others, he is also a highly respected advocate, currently specialising in police station and Magistrates’ Court advice and representation. He has substantial experience, as you would expect, of all aspects of the preparation of a criminal case from start to finish.
In addition to this experience, Nick brings both empathy and sympathy to his representation, and it is clear that he cares about the outcome of cases for clients. He is also a plain speaking individual, who is not afraid to ‘tell it as it is’ to clients, the police or Magistrates’ alike.
Nick is the defence representative on the East Midlands Criminal Justice Board and an active member of the Derbyshire Law Society.
