Practice

Experience

Daniel specialises in criminal law and is regularly instructed by the defence in complex and serious matters.

Daniel's strength is as a jury advocate and that is his predominant interest - as well as ensuring trials run. That is borne out by his very high acquittal rate when defending.

Daniel has a particular interest in, and experience of, evidence-heavy multi-defendant conspiracies and offences involving serious violence and Class A drugs. Daniel takes a particular and very keen interest in costs, costs jurisprudence and proper service of papers and always raises such matters from the earliest possible opportunity.

Daniel has appeared in Crown Courts across the country and accepts instructions from all geographical areas. For some examples of Daniel's experience please see the ‘Reported Cases' section.

I have no hesitation whatever in commending him as a reliable and considerate counsel."
