I am a transport lawyer with many years experience representing haulage operators, professional drivers and motorists and hold the CPC qualification for haulage at the national and international level.

I initially read Geography at Durham, took an MBA, specialising in marketing and small business management and ran my own business. I then returned to Leeds University to study law, taking a Masters degree. I trained with Ford & Warren solicitors in Leeds and went on to work in the Ford & Warren transport department. I regularly appear before the Traffic Commissioner at public inquiries and in the Magistrates’ courts. My experience also covers acting for clients charged with the most serious types of offences such as gross negligence manslaughter and conspiracy to falsify tachograph records. I write for the trade press, having been the author of the legal advice column for “Truck & Driver” and am a regular guest writer for “Commercial Motor” magazine.
An appearance before the Traffic Commissioner or the Court is a daunting prospect and I will try to make the experience as stress free as possible by clearly explaining to you the relevant law and procedure.
My aim is to provide a high quality dedicated
professional service for my clients at reasonable
This can only be done by keeping down
unnecessary overheads, having knowledge of the
industry and a thorough understanding of the
relevant law, including keeping abreast
of proposals coming from Brussels.
