Hello Again

Is anyone still out there?

I have not posted anything here for a long, long time.

Where have I been? Nowhere really, I am still doing criminal defence work in Essex.

Things have changed in my world. I was working for a firm of solicitors which faced the prospect of imploding due to differences between the Partners and the direction they each wanted to take the firm. I am very pleased to report that my entire criminal department got up and joined an existing major crime firm in Essex.

The world of crime has remained very similar - there are still too many people out there chasing a ever decreasing pool of money to make a living. The government is still hell bent on cutting fees for legal aid work.

My work has diversified. I am now spending more time in the Crown Court than anywhere else. I have prosecuted cases in behalf of a local Council. My firm has also become a preferred supplier to prosecute Probation breaches in the Crown Court.

If people are still out there reading this blog then I will carry on posting about the murky world of a criminal solicitor.

Yup. I'm here. Blogging is a contracting world, though. I blame farcebook - the work of the devil.
