I am at the cutting edge when it comes to using the latest technology to interact with his clients and offer my clients the convenience of videoconferencing via smartphone, tablet, Mac or PC (FaceTime, Tango, Skype, Google Hangouts) and incorporates letter via text messaging in addition to email to optimize client communications. Therefore with video conferencing, virtual face- to-face meetings with clients ensures that distance is no obstacle and time and expense is spared hence I act for clients nationally and can even link up with clients, witnesses or experts when he or they are abroad.
I acted in the internationally reported case of Alexis v Newham London Borough Council  EWHC 1323 (QB). The case established the principle that education authorities may be held liable for the consequences of the acts of unsupervised pupils who misbehave.
Assault, wrongful arrest malicious prosecution, false imprisonment - damages paid - unprecedented public apology made by DS Nick Westwood of the Met Police on 7th January 2012 at claimant's church.
The claimant was of exemplary character. This case was brought against the Met following the claimant's successful appeal against conviction (the claimant had served more than half of her sentence).
The case was widely reported in the press and on local radio (Mail online, Telegraph, Evening Standard, LBC Radio (Nick Ferrari's breakfast show) ITV London Tonight and in multiple news reports following dissemination by the Press Association also on Youtube).
