Simon’s reflections:

  • I find criminal law a fascinating and vital area. It involves a mix of people who come from all walks of life and whose interactions with the criminal justice system cover a broad range of offences
  • The legal system can be very confusing and this, combined with the extensive power of the state, means that many defendants are at a considerable disadvantage. Our role is to offset this inherent disadvantage for our clients
