Areas of Expertise:
Criminal Defence, Personal Injury, Family, Employment


Steven began his career in criminal law and was regularly instructed in cases ranging from the Youth Court to the Crown Court.  Whilst Steven predominantly defended, he occasionally prosecuted for the Department for Work and Pensions, The London Probation Service and The Crown Prosecution Service. This foundation in the Criminal Courts gave him invaluable advocacy skills that he has adopted into his increasing civil practice.

Since joining Nexus in 2011, Steven has built his practice in the areas of:

Personal Injury, with a particular focus on Road Traffic Accidents involving counter allegations of Fraud and Low Velocity Impact cases;

Employment Law, including unfair dismissal, all forms of discrimination, Equal pay and whistle blowing; and

Both Private and Public Family Law; including Contact, Ancillary Relief and Domestic Injunctions.

Steven prides himself on his attention to detail and high client care, allowing him to grasp complex cases quickly and empathise with those he works so hard to represent.

Steven has a busy paper based practice and regularly undertakes general drafting work on issues of liability, quantum, and statements of case.  In addition to his paper based workload, he participates in mediation, negotiation and advocacy before both the employment tribunal and civil courts.

As a final note, Steven is also Police Station accredited meaning that he can represent Clients at their very first dealings within the Criminal Justice System.


To relax, Steven enjoys diving, skiing, golf and reading. Steven is also a season ticket holder at Chelsea Football Club.
