His criminal practice includes both trial and appellate work. He was previously appointed as a Deputy Magistrate in 2016. He frequently appears in court defending his clients for offences which vary widely from white collar and serious commercial frauds, offences involving dishonesty or violence to road traffic and industrial summonses. Such trials often include challenges to the admissibility of declarations made against interest.
