Sally O'Neill QC
A well-respected barrister who prosecutes and defends serious heavyweight crime cases. She is particularly well known for her mastery of serious sexual offence and infanticide cases, most notably those involving 'baby shaking', an area where she is commended for her handling of vulnerable witnesses. O'Neill also excels in serious and complex murder and manslaughter cases, among others.
Strengths: “She can examine and cross-examine very effectively even when faced with the least impressive material.”
Recent work: Acted for the CPS in a baby shaking relating to Pedro Rubim. Rubim was convicted of manslaughter.
