I firmly believe that everybody, no matter what their position in society, should be held accountable for their actions and inactions. This rings true for Police Officers and other state bodies. Whilst the vast majority of interactions with the public by Police Forces are handled commendably, there are occasions where members of the public are not treat how one would expect. I am passionate that these unfortunate individuals should have avenues for recourse and specialists to turn to in order to overcome any injustice. These individuals need somebody in their corner at what is often a very stressful and overwhelming time and I am happy that I can support people through the legal process to achieve outcomes that they deserve.
I am passionate about supporting people who have suffered, particularly a loss of their liberty, at the hands of Police forces. Nobody should be subject to a loss of liberty without good and proper cause and it motivates me to challenge the Police on this on behalf of my clients.
I was very proud to assist Neil Hudgell and Leanne Stephenson in representing the family of Lewis Skelton. He was a victim of a fatality shooting by Humberside Police in the Hull city centre. The inquest into Lewis’s death is still ongoing at this time.
