Harry joined MK Law in August 2023, from the litigation and investigations department of a Magic Circle law firm.
Whilst there, he litigated several cases in the Commercial Court, assisted clients with fraud and bribery investigations, worked on a private prosecution, and advocated in several Employment Tribunal cases for the Free Representation Unit.
Harry made the switch to criminal legal aid because of his passion for representing the most vulnerable members of society and holding the state’s powers to account. He now spends most days fighting his client’s corner in the Magistrates’ Court.
Harry gained his Higher Rights of Audience in July 2023 and particularly enjoys the advocacy aspect of his role.
Some of Harry’s notable cases
R v E – 8-week suspended sentence for a university student who was convicted of driving whilst disqualified for a third time.
R v U – client accused of possession of a blade without good reason. Prosecution dropped charges on day of trial.
R v C – successfully proved that client’s electronic tag was broken at a breach of bail hearing.
R v H – 16-week sentence for possession with intent to supply class B drugs.
