Caitlin is a Solicitor practicing in Criminal Law in the Magistrates Court team, based in our Bristol Office. Caitlin completed her training contract with Reeds, undertaking seats in Criminal Law, Public Family Law and Private Family Law. Caitlin is also an Accredited Police Station Representative.

Caitlin attained a First-Class Honours degree in History from Swansea University. Following this, she received a “Law First” scholarship to study the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the University of Law, in which she achieved a distinction, before joining Reeds to complete her professional training.

During the course of her academic studies, Caitlin volunteered at the National Centre of Domestic Violence, where she took detailed witness statements for court. Caitlin built from this experience during her training contract, in which she met with clients in both the office and prison to take their instructions ahead of trial, saw defence witnesses, engaged with experts to prepare reports and fully prepared cases for trial. This experience has enabled Caitlin to ensure she goes above and beyond to ensure a great service is provided to every client she represents.

Caitlin is focusing on strengthening her practice of Criminal Law in the Magistrates Court, by representing clients who are facing a diversity of charges. A few of these include – allegations of fraud; possession or cultivation of drugs; possession with intent to supply; drug conspiracies; sexual offences; public order offences; burglary; criminal damage, and arson.

Caitlin’s attention to detail ensures her cases are meticulously prepared, ensuring her clients have the best chance of securing a favourable outcome at each stage as their matter progresses, from the Police Station, through to the Magistrates Court.
