Position

Rebecca’s practice comprises predominantly defence work, principally in the Crown Court, but also in the Magistrates court and the Court of Appeal. She has defended and secured the acquittal of defendants in cases involving serious offences of violence (including GBH with intent), weapons, robbery, burglary and other offences of dishonesty, drugs offences, money laundering and sexual offences (including indecent images of children). She also has experience dealing with confiscation matters in the Crown and magistrates’ courts. In 2011 and 2012 she was involved in a number of cases involving cash in transit robberies and a number of cases where GBH with intent was alleged. In 2011, she successfully argued in the Court of Appeal that a conviction should be quashed where the judge had incorrectly directed the jury in a bladed article case (R v Clancy [2012] EWCA Crim 8; (2012) 176 JP 111). Rebecca has dealt with a whole range of vulnerable and difficult clients, including young defendants and those with serious mental illness.
