Practice Areas

I represent clients who are harmed by the unlawful actions of the police and other state agencies, including the Home Office, the Ministry of Justice and the Crown Prosecution Service.

I also represent clients bringing legal actions against private companies delivering services within the criminal justice system.

Many of my cases concern complaints and civil actions against the police. These include seeking accountability for clients who are:

Unlawfully arrested or otherwise detained

Subjected to unlawful force

Maliciously prosecuted

Harassed by the police, including the unlawful use of stop and search powers

Discriminated against, including racially and disability discrimination such as the police not making reasonable adjustments to accommodate disabilities

Subjected to treatment that breaches their legal rights, including breaches of the Human Rights Act and the Data Protection Act.

I also act for the families of loved ones who die in police or prison custody, following contact with the police or as the result of failings by state agencies or private bodies.
