Work Department

Alexandra specialises in all aspects of criminal and family law.

Position

Alexandra has developed a busy practice specialising in all aspects of criminal and family law. She is instructed as junior counsel to the Grenfell Tower Inquiry.

Alexandra’s background and expertise make her a strong advocate for difficult or vulnerable clients in particular, as she is able to adapt her approach to suit each situation, and can empathise and patiently work to gain her client’s confidence and to promote and protect their interests.

Here’s what some of those who have worked with Alexandra have to say about her:

“Alexandra is diligent and thorough in preparing her work, quick to identify the issues in any case and excellent at dealing with clients. She has a great reputation and is very well-liked.”

Feedback from Instructing Solicitor.

“The client called me yesterday afternoon to tell me how brilliant you were at court ( I never had any doubt!). You really put her at ease and, as ever, your quick thinking and pragmatic approach worked wonders. Thank you for making a worried girl so comfortable and achieving such a brilliant result.” – an Instructing Solicitor

“She knows how to prepare a case and has an instinctive feel for good points and bad points. She keeps her eye on the ball. She is also naturally charming.” – Leading Counsel

“Her opening speech was excellent, but her cross-examination was outstanding. It is fair to say that Alexandra courteously and kindly destroyed the defendant in cross-examination, a more vigorous approach would certainly have been counterproductive. She gave a mature, convincing, skilful, careful and extremely effective performance.” – An Opponent.
