Caroline is an experienced trial advocate who predominately defends in serious cases involving allegations of sexual violence and abuse, offences against the person, weapons, drug trafficking and offending by organised crime groups.
She is also regularly instructed by the Crown Prosecution Service and has a busy prosecution practice.
Caroline’s practice has been built on clear advice at the early stages to both professional and lay clients, thorough preparation at each stage of the pre-trial process, all of which lay the ground work for her effective and engaging courtroom advocacy.
She has received praise from the Judiciary, opponents and clients following the deft handling of particularly emotional, hostile or vulnerable witnesses, as well as for her powerful jury speeches.
Caroline has a direct, no nonsense approach to tackling difficult or sensitive issues with both clients and witnesses, whilst always remaining approachable. She will always seek to provide advice and support as appropriate throughout what is almost always a daunting process for clients.
