William qualified as a solicitor in 1995 and specialised in criminal law. He built up a formidable Magistrates’ Court reputation before achieving his Higher Rights Qualification in 2010.
He joined VHS Fletchers in 2011 in order to expand his experience and caseload before the Crown Court. Over the last five years he has gained extensive experience across the range of criminal law cases including firearms offence, robbery, major drugs conspiracies, sexual assaults, fraud, burglary and other dishonesty offences. He has undertaken the confiscation proceedings that flow from such cases.
He has successfully represented clients before the Court of Appeal in relation to arguments as to manifestly excessive sentences.
William’s particular strength is his ability to communicate to a jury.
He is a member of SAHCA (The Solicitors Association of Higher Courts Advocates).
