Casey has over 7 years’ experience dealing with the full range of criminal defence cases. She completed the academic stage of her CILEx Lawyer qualifications at the University of Westminster in 2011 and gained invaluable work based experience at a number of firms including Peters & Peters LLP before joining MK Law in 2016.
She is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and has rights of audience in the Magistrates’ Court.
Casey has a particular interest in representing vulnerable or marginalised people, and regularly acts on behalf of children and young people.
Casey has exceptional client care skills. She understands the stress a police investigation or criminal prosecution can bring and will guide you through the process.
She frequently acts for individuals who have never faced investigation or prosecution before. She challenges the police and Crown Prosecution Service on their decisions to prosecute where the evidential or public interest thresholds are not met. In doing so, she regularly secures discontinuance or alternative forms of disposal on behalf of her clients.
Casey assists Hesham Puri in the Serious Crime Department dealing with the most serious and high profile criminal matters.
