Crime & Appeals
Direct Access Qualified - without the need to instruct a solicitor to discuss your case
I have practised exclusively in crime since being called to the bar in 1994. Whilst I prosecute for the CPS (grade 3), I primarily specialise in defence work and this forms the majority of my practice. I undertake both private client and legal aid work.
I am frequently instructed as a junior or leading junior in serious and complex cases, including offences of: murder; attempted murder; rape; indecent assault; sexual offences involving children and the vulnerable; kidnapping; arson with intent; serious assaults, cases involving domestic violence and hate crimes; public order offences, including riot and violent disorder; robbery, including armed robberies; large scale importation and supply of drugs; IT related crime; money laundering; and serious fraud.
I specialise in fraud, money laundering, tax evasion and confiscation proceedings and offences under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
I have led in a number of cases, including offences of: attempted murder; familial homicide; manslaughter; importation of significant quantities of drugs; and large scale fraud.
I am qualified to receive instructions in Direct Access cases in regulatory/disciplinary matters or from professional bodies.

If you believe that you, a family member or friend have been wrongly convicted of an offence in the Magistrates’ or Crown Court Warwick can assist in advising on whether there are any grounds for appeal to a higher court, similarly if you feel that a sentence imposed is excessive Warwick is able to advise on how best to pursue an appeal. Warwick is able to conduct appeal proceedings at all levels and you can instruct him directly without the need for a solicitor.
