After qualifying as a Solicitor in 2004, I commenced employment in a niche criminal practise for 2 years. During that time, I obtained my Duty Solicitor status and worked in police stations and criminal courts in order to represent suspects/defendants nationally.
In 2006, I applied for employment at Woodfines LLP in the Crime and Regulatory Department where I was recruited to assist with the prosecution of offences on behalf of the DVSA. After obtaining my Higher Rights of Audience, I went on to conduct trials in the Crown Courts and represented defendants in the Court of Appeal.
After being made partner in 2010, I continued to expand my transport law caseload and expertise, representing clients before the Upper Tribunal in relation to appeals against decisions of the Traffic Commissioner.
After successfully applying to the University of Swansea in 2013, I became an assessor for those who wished to participate in the Police Station and Duty Solicitor Accreditation examinations.
From 2015 my transport practice became increasingly focused on assisting Operators at their Public Inquiry. Later that year, I was delighted to be appointed by the Master of the Rolls to sit as a legal member of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (or “SDT”). This appointment prompted me to think about my career in the longer term, whereupon I set up CE Transport Law Ltd.
In the last two years the business has become increasingly focused on assisting Operators, Transport Managers and Drivers who require assistance with keeping their vehicles on the road.
I hope I can be of assistance to you in the very near future!
