Amy is a specialist criminal practitioner instructed by the defence and prosecution.

Amy’s practice spans serious offences of all types.  She is regularly instructed to defend in cases of rape, historic sexual abuse, and offences involving children.  Her style of successfully cross-examining children and vulnerable witnesses has been repeatedly noted and complimented.

Amy also regularly defends in cases of attempted murder, armed robbery, kidnap, blackmail, serious violence, and possession of drugs with intent to supply.  She has significant experience of representing youths charged with serious offences.

Amy also enjoys a strong prosecution practice, often prosecuting multi handed conspiracies.  She holds the belief that acting for both the prosecution and defence makes her a more astute and successful advocate.  She acts for the Crown Prosecution Service, UK Border Agency, Department of Business and Local Authorities.
