In addition to her qualification as an accredited police station representative, and her ongoing training with CILEX, in her role within chambers, Zoe now maintains a number of cases before the Crown Court.  As an organised, thorough and diligent individual, Zoe undertakes all aspects of litigation in preparation for client’s hearings; including the drafting of legal documents, identifying the potential need for experts where necessary, and reviewing evidence in liaison with instructed Counsel to assist in the process of taking instructions from our clients.

With an approachable and friendly nature, Zoe is naturally adept at liaising with the Prosecution, clients and the Court; and in establishing and building excellent relationships with clients, ensuring that not only are their cases progressed in a timely and proactive way, but that they are continually kept up to date with progress, and fully informed throughout.
