I am no longer accepting instructions in routine cases.

I will consider accepting instructions in:

  • Cases in which the prosecution rely on a subjective evaluation of DNA profiling evidence as permitted by R v Dlugosz; R v Pickering; R v MDS [2013] EWCA Crim 2 (“no statistics, Dlugosz-style" statements).
  • Cases in which advanced computer software has been used to evaluate the weight of DNA profiling evidence and cases in which such evaluation is required by the defence.
  • Historical cases and "double jeopardy" cases relying on DNA profiling evidence.
