Upon qualifying as a solicitor Nigel joined the staff of the Director of Public Prosecutions in London. Whilst at the DPP he was professional officer for many high profile cases including the OZ prosecution. He left the DPP upon invitation to be partner responsible for the criminal department in a South Yorkshire Law firm at which Chris Stevenson was subsequently admitted to partnership.
During his 40 years in Doncaster Nigel has gained many firsts including being the first Solicitor to regularly exercise rights of audience in Doncaster Crown Court, the first in Doncaster to be admitted to the newly set up Childrens Panel and a national first on 20 January 1986 in getting up and running in Doncaster this country’s first Police Station Duty Solicitor Scheme. He still remains a member of that scheme along with the Court Duty Solicitor Scheme.
Having gained Higher Rights in Criminal work Nigel has rights of audience in all Criminal Court within England and Wales and has appeared in Court of Appeal.
Nigel enjoys researching abnormalities in the law however, when not involved in running an Almshouse Charity, his principal interest is centred on his family.
Solicitor Advocate (Higher Courts Criminal Proceedings)
• In my early career standing up in Court in high profile cases and saying \'\'I appear on behalf of the Director of Public Prosecutions\" • Gaining Higher Rights of Audience enabling me to travel to London and successfully present Appeals before the Court of Appeal. • The undiminished thrill experience in every case upon a Jury or Magistrates returning a verdict of Not Guilty and the thanks expressed by the relieved client.
