Areas of Work

Since beginning pupillage, Dominic has worked alongside members of chambers on a number of high level cases for both the prosecution and the defence. Upon commencing his 2nd six, Dominic has been instructed for the Defence numerous times in the magistrates and youth courts; and has dealt with relatively complex cases that include issues related to mental health concerns of defendants, youths with threats against their lives, gang-related incidents, knife crime, drug related offences and assault. 

Dominic is passionate about justice, particularly for those who are often overlooked or without a voice. Whilst completing the Bar Course, Dominic was engaged in the Miscarriage of Justice Project, which sought to act as a voice for cases of imprisonment where there was a reasonable chance that a miscarriage of justice had occurred. Dominic also qualified as a Free Representation Unit Rep.

Whilst completing his LLB, Dominic worked for Leicestershire Police in the Criminal Justice Department. Subsequently, prior to commencing pupillage with Chambers, Dominic worked as a Political Advisor (Accredited Parliamentary Assistant – Advisory) to numerous politicians of various persuasions, in the European Parliament; Brussels. Dominic worked in Brussels for just over 2 years; offering political, legal and PR advice to Members of the European Parliament. Dominic worked in both French and English, alongside government ministers from various European and non-European countries; ambassadors, journalists, European Union Officials and members of the public from various backgrounds and nationalities. Dominic frequently dealt with the scrutiny of European Union legislation, and was also required to carry out research, write speeches, brief politicians before interviews and debates, and deal with media or PR issues as and when they arose. As a result, Dominic has a good level of experience in legal analysis; advice-giving; strategy; and public relations in high-pressure and rapidly changing environments.
