Jonathan believes that the provision of legal services is essentially a problem-solving process. His aim with all his clients is therefore not only to provide legal advice and representation, but to help each client achieve a solution that best meets all their needs, holistically. In doing so, he also holds fast to his belief that everyone should have access to justice.
With his training and experience in Dispute Resolution and Litigation, Jonathan is competent with handling a diverse range of cases both civil and criminal. Although he takes a special interest in criminal defence/litigation, Jonathan has enjoyed a full spectrum of legal work in civil/commercial litigation and this background gives him a commercial-mindedness to the solutions/advice he provides to clients. He is also familiar with trial and appellate processes, as well as various alternative dispute resolution processes.
As part of his mission to make justice accessible to all, Jonathan contributes and serves the wider society by providing pro bono legal services to accused persons in need under the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (“CLAS”), and also invests time in mentoring the young both within the profession and in his local communities.
