Charlotte was called to the Bar in 2019 and became a tenant of Exchange Chambers in October 2021 following the successful completion of her pupillage. During her pupillage, Charlotte covered a range of common law matters including criminal, regulatory and personal injury law.
During her second six, Charlotte developed a busy criminal practice, regularly appearing in both the magistrates’ and Crown Courts. She receives instructions in a broad range of criminal cases including drugs, theft, violence, fraud and driving matters. As a result, Charlotte is confident acting in all stages of the criminal process. She has also been instructed in both civil and criminal confiscation proceedings on behalf of the CPS and Police.
Charlotte also accepts instructions in motoring and vehicle crime. She has experience of exceptional hardship applications and special reasons arguments in both the magistrates’ and on appeal to the Crown Court.
Charlotte has also acted for a number of defendants in positions of responsibility, including police officers and directors. She has a keen interest and growing practice in the field of police law and disciplinary, an area that she would like to continue to develop.
Charlotte has already built a reputation as a confident and conscientious junior who goes above and beyond for both her professional and lay clients. A passionate advocate for increasing diversity at the Bar, Charlotte appears at and runs events that promote equality and diversity in the profession (see further here).
