His practice covers all areas of criminal work but he has a particular interest in cases involving sexual offences and offences committed against children. Of necessity, this involves knowledge of social services procedures and material, and the principles and practice governing Public Interest Immunity matters. His systematic approach to criminal litigation has as its cornerstone thorough preparation and pro-active case management. He prides himself on a meticulous attention to detail, which has time and again paid off in heavy paper-based or unused material cases where he has had notable successes.

He has been instructed over the years to prosecute in a number of police operations, on occasions being involved pre-arrest in case management. These have invariably involved extensive PII considerations/hearings.
