Expert Motoring & Criminal law advice for your case. All from your own home.

As the lock-down begins to ease, “socially distanced” Magistrates Court trials are starting to happen. It’s just a matter of time before your case is called.

Are you ready?

Many people are feeling the financial pinch of this pandemic – and they don’t think that spending money on a barrister is a priority.

Here’s what most people caught up in the criminal justice system don’t realise until it’s too late:

People who get a barrister’s advice on their cases before their trials start are much more likely to get the best result possible.

They also avoid wasting time and money on solicitors – or trying to figure it out for themselves.

Instead of getting burned by the process, they get their lives back on track much faster.

Because of this, I’m offering free 15 minute discovery calls by Zoom – so you can get confidence, clarity and certainty now with a review of your case and a plan.

These discovery calls are completely free, but spaces are limited. Reserve your spot today by booking a space in my diary.

What’s the real cost?

I understand that there is a lot at stake – your job, your licence, your reputation.

Choosing to represent yourself, or the wrong decision on who represents you, could cost you more than you think.

You deserve to have someone on your side when facing a criminal or motoring charge – someone with the qualifications, experience and authority to help you get your life back.

“Kristin put together a watertight case which demonstrated on multiple fronts that there was no case to answer. Throughout the process she was fearless, incisive and a truly inspiring guiding light.”

Cllr B Locker, Colchester Borough Council

Sometimes bad things can happen to good people – don’t let it define the rest of your life.

I understand the stress that accusations can cause clients. Criminal and Motoring charges often happen when you least expect it.

Sometimes things just go wrong. After all, you don’t plan to have a car accident. What if you get accused of something at work, or if an argument gets out of hand? Perhaps you used violence to defend yourself and are accused of going over the top.

I know that these things can just happen. Let me give you the defence your deserve.
