Position

Barrister specialising in crime. Jonathan Duffy was called to the Bar by Gray's Inn in 2002. His criminal practice is almost exclusively focused on defending in the Crown Court and the Court of Appeal. He is appointed to the panel of prosecuting counsel (at Grade 4) but he very rarely prosecutes. He has defended in some extremley high profile trials in recent years, notably that involving the principal defendant accused of the Murder of Rhys Jones in Liverpool and those of Dennis Slade, accused of conspiring with others to commit Murder and Robbery in Leeds. Mr Duffy is also frequently instructed in Appeals to the Crown Court concerning Firearms and Shotgun Certification revocation. Chief Officers of Police are increasingly revoking certificates on the basis of historic or unsupported information and recently, Mr Duffy has assisted many clients to successfully challenge such decisions. He is a registered Pupil Supervisor and is authorised by the Bar Council to accept instructions directly from the public in apporpriate cases.

He also sits, part-time, as a Judge in the Mental Health Tribunal in England and also in Wales.
