Taking the opportunity to join the Duty Solicitor scheme in 1987, Jennifer has practiced criminal law ever since. Her criminal practice soared in the 90’s as the only criminal lawyer in a conveyancing firm in Clapham Junction. She had the opportunity to represent clients in high profile cases from Police station to the crown court. Eventually when the firm decided to represent private clients only she decided to set up her own firm with all her legal aid clients, mainly crime and family.
After a vast range of cases including murder, drug trafficking, mental health, child abductions, robbery, fraud and sexual offences, she closed her practice in 1995 after deciding to specialise in crime only. Jennifer then moved from South London to work across the water in the West End for a legal 500 criminal law firm where she concentrated on trial advocacy, joining the crown court advocacy team, whilst still maintaining duty solicitor responsibilities.
In 2003 she moved to work for a criminal litigation firm in South London, during which time she became a higher rights advocate. In 2007 she moved to Kent and joined the Kent duty solicitor scheme in 2008, where she has continued to work as a higher rights advocate and duty solicitor.
Her greatest moments have been acquittals in cases of murder, manslaughter, GBH, a 10 year old cold case rape and finally a no case to answer in respect to a five handed violent disorder case.
