Imogen is a Solicitor-Advocate specialising in criminal defence and motoring law and takes on a full range of cases both privately and legally aided (where available), from complex drug matters to sexual offences and murder. Her motoring cases range from complex drink driving matters, up to and including serious and fatal motoring cases in the Magistrates’ and Crown Courts. She has a proven track record for saving client’s driving licences even in the most complex and challenging cases.

Instructed by a number of large insurance companies, Imogen has been described as “the advocate of choice for those in the know”.

Throughout her 21 year career Imogen has gained an excellent reputation in her home town of Leicester which has now spread UK wide.

She has often appeared on local and national TV and radio as an expert on a variety of matters either as a commentator on court decisions of cases, or subjects such as anonymity in sexual offences, legal aid cuts and other widely reported topics. Her specialism in motoring law led to her addressing the National Conference of Driving Instructors.

Over the years she has represented a number of high profile clients and as a result is well versed at dealing with the press at both local and national level.

Imogen’s combative yet compassionate approach means that she deals with a number of clients with unique difficulties and mental health problems with a specialism in dealing with client’s suffering from ADHD. Her work in that area led to her addressing the National ADDISS conference in London on ADHD and the law, and writing an advisory article for their magazine.

Her exceptional client care skills allow Imogen to guide clients through the often daunting court process in a way that they immediately know that they are in safe hands.

She is also a Recommended Lawyer by the Legal 500.
