Martin Jones

Criminal defence consultant
Martin became an equity partner 12 months after joining the firm. He later became managing partner of the criminal litigation department and continued in that role for approximately ten years until his retirement from the partnership in 2014. 
 
During his tenure as managing partner the department moved into areas of work beyond those traditionally done by criminal teams enabling the team to both grow in size, strength and reputation whilst retaining a commitment to publicly funded work.

Since stepping down as a partner Martin has remained with the firm as a consultant and continues to attend courts and/or police stations on a daily basis. He is a duty solicitor and has a vast experience of dealing with the whole range of cases that can come before the courts. He has covered the length and breadth of the country representing clients. His expertise and experience are an invaluable asset and he often is sought out by colleagues within and from outside the firm seeking the benefit of his vast experience of both management and advocacy.

The department is able to offer emergency advice and assistance 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
