Emma is regularly instructed in extremely serious and high profile cases. She has vast experience in dealing with Homicide, Terrorism Offences, Serious Sexual Offences, Complex Fraud and regularly acts in cases representing ‘so-called’ Serious and Organised Crime Groups.

Reports are often made by them and their families commenting on her empathetic handling of cases, which leaves them feeling thoroughly supported throughout what is an extremely traumatic experience, not just for a suspect, but for many of those around them.
