Like many criminal lawyers I am motivated by a strong sense of justice and fair play. I relish a challenge. I am more than happy to take my cases one step further - to argue an unpopular point or to appeal a decision in the Divisional Court or the Court of Appeal.
At Lansbury Worthington we are fortunate to have a very good, intelligent and hardworking team in place. In the age of conveyor belt legal services we try to give all our clients a personal service. Whether you are facing serious fraud allegations or a simple road traffic offence we will give your case the attention it deserves.
Given the dedication of our staff it is not surprising that we have been awarded membership of the Legal Services Commission Very High Cost Cases Panel, score highly in our Lexcel Audits, and demonstrate high levels of competence in formal peer reviews.
