Practice Overview: 

Prior to being called to the bar Simon practised as solicitor for ten years specialising in crime, mental-health and family work. He was a member of the Law Society’s specialist mental-health panel. As such he is often instructed in cases where a party to the proceedings is vulnerable or has mental-health difficulties.

Simon joined Albion Chambers in 2017, initially practising in crime and mental health until transferring across to the Child Law team. He now practises exclusively in family law, both public and private law, and Court of Protection work.

He is a highly experienced advocate, his skills having been honed over many years at the criminal bar where he gained particular expertise in dealing with vulnerable clients, and those requiring a particularly sensitive approach. Simon is recognised for his thorough preparation and his ability to manage the most challenging of cases.
