Carolyn Evans | Principal Solicitor
After qualifying as a Solicitor in 2004, Carolyn commenced employment in a niche criminal practice where she remained for two years. During that time, she obtained her Duty Solicitor status and worked in police stations and criminal courts in order to represent suspects/defendants nationally.
In 2006, after taking up employment at Woodfines LLP, (Milton Keynes) in the Crime and Regulatory Department, she was recruited to assist with the prosecution of offences on behalf of the DVSA. After obtaining her Higher Rights of Audience, she went on to conduct trials in the Crown Courts and represented defendants in the Court of Appeal.
After being made partner in 2010, Carolyn continued to expand her 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, Carolyn became an assessor for those who wished to participate in the Police Station and Duty Solicitor Accreditation examinations.
In October 2015, Carolyn was delighted to be appointed by the Master of the Rolls, The Lord Chancellor, to sit as a legal member of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (or “SDT”). This appointment prompted her to think about her career in the longer term, whereupon she set up CE Transport Law Ltd.
