Having taken silk, she now undertakes the most serious and complex of cases and is routinely instructed by both prosecution and defence in cases of fatal violence, complex child cruelty and neglect, serious sexual violence and fraud. She accepts publicly and privately funded work and can in suitable cases be instructed on a direct access basis.

She is expert in the questioning or representation of those considered vulnerable either by reason of their extreme youth or age, capabilities, health or the nature of the offences with which the case is concerned.
