Solicitor & Team Leader
Areas of law:
Magistrates’ Court, Motoring Solicitors, Police Station, Youth Court, Crime and Investigation
Clare is a solicitor, and leads the Magistrates Court team based in our Milton Keynes office. Since qualifying in April 2004, Clare attained her duty solicitor status and has represented clients appearing before the Magistrates Court for a whole range of offences, from minor driving indiscretions, through to allegations of murder. She conducts advocacy at a variety of different hearings, from adjournments through to multi day trials; and legal arguments and bail applications; calmly and carefully advising her clients on plea, sentence and evidence throughout, no matter what the offence or the circumstances of it.
Clare now tends to specialise in areas such as road traffic law and dangerous dog offences; as well as cases before the Youth Court where her ability to explain complex legal issues and communicate effectively proves invaluable. She has particular expertise in helping clients with mental health difficulties, where her ability to build a rapport with them and carefully consider the issues relating to their ability to understand the proceedings and fitness to plead, often sees her instructing intermediaries and other mental health experts and professionals to ensure her client’s interests are properly protected.
Clare is renowned for her thorough approach to case preparation and her efficiency in Court, but above all, for her true empathy to her client’s position and her appreciation that every case is significant to those it affects; always striving for the best possible result she can achieve for her clients.
In accordance with the Solicitors’ Regulatory Transparency Rules for motoring offences we confirm that Clare Galo charges Level A hourly rates.
