Practice Profile

John-Paul commenced pupillage in July 2018 under the guidance of his pupil supervisor, Deni Mathews; he is undertaking a purely criminal pupillage and is available to take instructions in the magistrates’ court, crown court and in courts martial from February 2019.

John-Paul is a warfare officer in the Royal Navy, holding the rank of Lieutenant Commander, on completion of his pupillage he will return to uniformed service as a military barrister specialising in both criminal and international law.  His 15 years of service makes him ideally suited for courts martial work and offences involving service personnel.

John-Paul is a qualified civil-commercial mediator and is happy to be instructed as a mediator at both the pre-action stage of a dispute and during stayed proceedings.  He has delivered CPD training to lawyers in London and has been engaged to deliver a lecture to the City of Westminster and Holborn Law Society in early 2019.  As with all members of chambers John-Paul will cover all courts within the South West but he is equally happy to travel further afield as required.
