Kevin is a very experienced litigator and police station accredited representative, representing clients throughout all stages of the criminal justice system.

Kevin is also a member of the Private Client Department.
R v RC (Manchester Youth Court) – client was a vulnerable young person going through the care system. He was arrested for criminal damage after smashing a plant pot. Proceedings were discontinued after Kevin made successful representations to the CPS based on their own guidelines on the prosecution of ‘looked after’ children; this despite the fact the client admitted the offence during his police interview.
R v JW (Wood Green Crown Court) – client was charged with violent disorder following his alleged involvement in the London Riots in 2011. He suffered extensive mental health problems and was handcuffed to a lamp post by police during the evening of the riots having been found drinking inside a closed public house in Tottenham. Police produced CCTV of an entirely different male, proven by evidence provided by a facial mapping expert. The client was unanimously acquitted by the jury after only 30 minutes of deliberation and successful action against the police followed.
R v JZ (Snaresbrook Crown Court) – client was charged with grievous bodily harm with intent. He approached a male outside a nightclub and delivered one almost fatal blow to the head. Client was extremely vulnerable and suffered from paranoid schizophrenia; at the time he was experiencing a relapse and believed the male, who he had earlier been involved in an altercation with and was standing across the road at the time, was about to attack him. The client advanced self defence based on his genuine belief – with the assistance of expert medical evidence – that his safety was under imminent threat, and he was acquitted by the jury at trial.
