Marie accepts instructions in criminal cases in London, the South East, Birmingham and the Midlands.  She both prosecutes and defends and has appeared in the Criminal division of the Court of Appeal on several occasions.  Marie also accepts instructions in Prison Law and Mental Health Tribunals. Marie is proud to work within the publicly funded Bar and to accept instructions in legal aid cases. 

Marie is popular with lay clients and solicitors alike. She is often instructed in matters beyond her call in recognition of her skill and professionalism, and the Court of Appeal has praised her for her “helpful and succinct argument” and persuasiveness.   Marie prides herself on her ability to provide clients with sensible, well-reasoned advice in a manner that puts clients at ease and engenders trust. Marie is experienced in representing clients with severe mental health problems and other vulnerabilities. Equally, she is experienced in dealing with sensitive and vulnerable witnesses including young children and complainants in cases of a sexual nature.

In court, Marie uses her knowledge as a former crown court clerk to her advantage; she has a detailed knowledge of criminal procedure and a keen eye for detail which is particularly helpful in Proceeds of Crime Act proceedings.  As a jury advocate, Marie establishes a rapport with juries through her measured and calm approach – she argues robustly on behalf of clients without losing the sympathy of her tribunal.  She does not shy away from legal argument and presents both written and oral advocacy with confidence.

As an active member of Goldsmith Chambers, Marie gives a lot of her time to the running of Chambers. She has a position on our Chambers Management Committee as the Head of the Junior Practice Group.  Marie was the first member of her family to attend university; she feels strongly about social mobility and improving access to the Bar and plays an integral role within our Pupillage and New Tenants Committee overseeing mini-pupillages and speaking at events organised by the Inns to encourage young people of all backgrounds to consider a career at the Bar.
