Julian Edward Jones

Year of Call: 1999

Education:

  • LLB (Hons), 2:1 (Birmingham)
  • Dip. Law (ICSL)

Areas of work:

 

 

Julian specialises in cases involving very serious criminal allegations. He has experience of very substantial width and depth in trial advocacy, appellate advocacy, the giving of advice and case management.

He brings very thorough preparation and a firm grip on case management to every case he undertakes.

Julian is fully committed to giving every case the best he possibly can and those who instruct him know their case is in trusted hands. In the current resource stripped climate he will “go the extra mile” and do whatever he personally can for CPS or SFO Lawyers, Paralegal Officers and Defence Solicitors so as to make a case ready for hearing.

He takes great pride in client care, whether it be working with senior prosecution lawyers and police officers on prosecution strategy, or fulfilling the pastoral side of the job with a vulnerable defence client.

He is firmly committed to a mixed practice of both prosecuting and defending and believes experience on each side has helped him on the other.
