Having successfully completed her pupillage with Park Square Barristers under the supervision of Michael Morley and William Lindsay, Anna is accepting instructions across a broad range of criminal and family matters.
Anna frequently prosecutes on behalf of the Crown Prosecution Service and has secured successful convictions in cases of sexual assault, violent assault, dishonesty, and road traffic offences. Anna also appeared in the Crown Court in relation to both prosecution and defence work. Anna has received positive feedback from both solicitors and clients on her professionalism, ability to think on her feet and eye for detail in preparing a case.
Anna is also developing a strong defence practice, owing to her ability to build a rapport with clients and robustly advise on serious and sensitive matters. Anna has defended clients with ongoing mental health concerns in serious cases involving the commission of psychiatric reports, and has also defended in cases involving violent assaults, offensive weapons, harassment, and road traffic offences. Anna recently secured an absolute discharge following a successful special reasons argument and also assisted defendants in achieving favourable outcomes in cases of exceptional hardship. Anna’s particular interest is in cases involving serious sexual offences. In her first six she shadowed on several cases involving allegations of non-recent sexual abuse, including one case concerning twenty-one complainants and complex legal arguments.
Anna looks forward to continuing to develop a successful criminal practice.
