David has over 25 years worth of experience of dealing in all aspects of crime from initial arrest and interview at the Police Station, through to representation at the Magistrates Court, Crown Court and Court of Appeal.

He specialises in defending those charged with serious criminal offences both in the Crown Court and the Court of Appeal and recent criminal instructions include defending numerous cases of violence; public disorder; robberies, burglary and theft and clients charged with serious sexual offences. He has also recently successfully defended a youth charged with causing £10 million worth of damage at his former school.

A typical day in Court involves him dealing with bail applications, Plea and Case Management hearings, trials, sentence hearings or hearings involving legal arguments.

When not in Court David spends his time, supervising staff, managing a busy department, attending upon clients in conference and preparing his cases; which can include drafting complex and weighty legal documents and legal research.
