Practice Areas

Rebecca’s practice involves both defence and prosecution work, though with greater emphasis on the former.

Rebecca has defended and secured the acquittal of defendants in cases involving serious offences of violence, rape, armed robbery, fraud, drugs offences, child cruelty and money laundering. She has extensive experience of sex cases generally, and clients she has defended have been acquitted of sexual offences at every level of seriousness, whether facing charges of rape, assault by penetration, sexual assault or exposure, both historic and contemporary. She is not troubled by the challenges of cases that seem evidentially difficult. A client acquitted of rape after trial in 2017 described her representation of him as “exceptional” and “absolutely impeccable”. She has represented both elderly and child defendants facing trial for sexual allegations (including of an historic nature) where the issues have involved consent, identification and dispute as to fact.

Rebecca has wide-ranging experience of dealing with vulnerable people within the trial process, both witnesses and defendants, including children and those with serious mental illness. She is approachable and friendly and believes that client care is extremely important. When defending she always seeks to put clients at their ease by supporting them through the legal process as fully and sensitively as is possible and appropriate.

Rebecca has acted for the NMC and for practitioners appearing in fully contested proceedings before the NMC and the GDC.
