He is a Level 4 Prosecutor and a member of the Rape and Child Sexual Abuse List (“the Rape List”) and the CPS Serious Crime Group Panel. He undertakes publicly funded and private work and is qualified to accept instructions on a Direct Access basis.
He prosecutes and defends in the most serious cases including murder, manslaughter, firearms, rape, modern slavery and fraud. Although predominantly working in and around London he also works nationally.
Terence Woods was called to the bar in 1989 and initially combined a criminal practice with common law. He began to specialize in crime from 2000 and joined 187 Fleet Street soon afterwards.
He developed an extensive defence practice in London and the South East but has over time taken on an increasing amount of prosecution work such that his practise is now divided roughly 50/50 between the two.
