QEB Hollis Whiteman (Chambers of Mark Ellison QC)

Position

David Jeremy is a criminal barrister; and not a politician, diplomat or marketeer. His reputation is for straight dealing with clients, opponents and judges. But he is the ‘go-to’ barrister for a demanding solicitor and a difficult case. His experience of prosecuting, defending and sitting as a recorder, gives him a perspective and tactical advantage that can be used to transform a criminal trial.  His ability to identify early the decisive issues in a case means that he knows which points to take and which to concede. He understands the importance of maintaining credibility in the eyes of the judge, the respect of his opponent, and thus how to obtain the best outcome for his client.

As an advocate, David Jeremy demonstrates both technical skill, and a capacity for hard work. He ‘speaks’ to both judges and juries. He is a persuasive speech maker and a destructive cross-examiner. David Jeremy’s practice derives most frequently from referrals from other advocates with or against whom he has done criminal trials.  He is also the advocate of choice for the quality solicitor who is dedicated to their client and prepared to work hard in a committed team.
