Shannon is a Grade 2 Prosecutor and has dealt with a range of matters in this role in the Crown Court arena, and has recently been instructed as disclosure junior in a complex non-recent sexual abuse case, and is therefore meticulously well versed and up-to-date in all aspects of disclosure.
Shannon has also defended in a range of matters from first hearings in the Magistrates Court to multi-handed matters in the Crown Court. She also has experience of dealing with sensitive matters in the Youth Court, for example having defended both a vulnerable youth accused of sexual assault, and a separate matter where the child was charged with a s.18 GBH. Accordingly, she has extensive experience in providing advice, both written and during conference, on the often-complicated nature of youth sentencing.
Shannon has a meticulous approach to her preparation in all aspects of her work, and prides herself on her friendly and client focused approach, and her ability to deal with and relate to a range of different people, and recognising the difficult and often stressful nature of proceedings for clients.
Shannon has a strong academic background in relation to Crime, having achieved the highest grade across the entirety of her cohort in the Criminal Litigation examination on the BPTC.
