Criminal Law

Phil’s criminal practice involves regular appearances in the Magistrates’ and Crown courts on behalf of clients charged with public disorder, violent, sexual and financial offences. Most recently he has secured acquittals on charges of domestic violence, drug driving and dangerous driving. Phil also regularly defends in road traffic matters, including in special reasons and exceptional hardship hearings.

Personal Injury & General Civil

Phil receives instructions in personal injury cases on behalf of both Claimants and Defendants. He often acts in road traffic cases and cases involving credit hire. He has experience of applications to strike out and has successfully made applications to recover costs over and above those normally available, including on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour.

Education Law

Phil sits as a Clerk to the Independent Panel in school admission appeals.

Immigration Law

Phil has acted for a number of detainees, making bail applications on their behalf. He has been successful in securing bail by making arguments in respect of length of time in detention, imminence of removal and has also obtained bail in principle pending suitable accommodation.


For a number of years before commencing pupillage, Phil worked for the Royal College of Nursing as an advocate representing nurses in a wide range of disciplinary, capability, grievance and sickness hearings.
