Solicitor

Kelvin has an extensive background in criminal litigation with clients facing prosecution for serious offences including burglary, serious assault (GBH), drugs supply and firearms possession.

Kelvin’s successes have been won in the Magistrate’s, Crown and Appellate courts. A notable recent case saw his client secure an acquittal in respect of 3 counts of assaulting a police officer. The defendant had in that case been arrested for suspected firearms offences as a high profile gang member. The instruction of an expert was crucial in challenging the injuries alleged by the complainant police officer and the expert’s findings supported a robust cross-examination of that witness at trial. Post-conviction successes include the case of a client who avoided a custodial term despite pleading guilty to a fraud valued at over £166,000 and another case where the mandatory minimum 3-year custodial term for domestic burglary was overturned at the Court of Appeal.

Kelvin regularly appears as an advocate in the London Magistrate’s Courts and his experience in these courts ensures an up to date awareness of the ever changing field of criminal law and makes him quick to identify potential defences and able to provide precise, tactical advice to clients.

An astute and effective police station representative Kelvin has experience providing robust pre-interview advice at the police investigatory stage. He regularly attends to represent clients accused of murder, fraud, drugs supply and firearms offences. The advice he has provided at this crucial pre-charge stage of proceedings has been pivotal in securing successful outcomes for clients. This includes the notable acquittal of a defendant at the Old Bailey who faced a life term of imprisonment for his involvement in gang related murder.

Kelvin has developed expertise in the highly technical area of road traffic law whilst working closely with the departmental head, Mark Troman. His successes in the road traffic courts relate to offences which include driving with excess alcohol, dangerous driving, speeding and ‘failing to give information as to the identity of a driver’ as the registered keeper of a vehicle. Kelvin’s successes in this field reflect a practitioner who understands the value of rigorous legal research and thorough consideration of a strategic approach. Kelvin understands the serious implications a driving disqualification can have on his clients.

Kelvin believes strongly that every individual facing prosecution should receive legal advice of the highest quality and his portfolio of successes are a testament to this ethos.
