Lisa was called to the Bar in 2011, having already had a successful 15 year career as both a defence solicitor and later as Senior Crown Prosecutor and Crown Advocate.
Lisa enjoys a balanced defence and prosecution practice, is a Grade 3 Prosecutor and an approved RASSO member of the CPS Rape and Serious Sexual Offences Panel, reflecting her previous background as a member of a niche public protection team whilst at CPS.
Lisa’s unique background has given her a depth of knowledge and experience that goes well beyond her date of call. She is well known locally as a thoroughly prepared jury advocate whose attention to detail and exceptional client care skills set her apart from others. Due to this, she is frequently instructed either to prosecute or defend in cases where the Defendant suffers from Mental Health issues or is otherwise vulnerable by virtue of learning disabilities or age.
Her current caseload includes Homicides, large scale drugs conspiracies, Armed Robberies, kidnap, blackmail and firearms cases.
