Lucie joins the Crime team from Westgate Chambers in Lewes where she established a busy criminal practice.
She deals with matters from across the criminal spectrum for both the prosecution and defence including cases involving serious violence and sexual offences, drugs offences, fraud and other dishonesty offences brought to court by the CPS in addition to animal welfare and hunting cases brought by the RSPCA.
“Lucie was very responsive and easy to work with”

R v P Secured acquittal of a man accused of s.18 GBH who maintained he was acting in self defence whilst in a highly intoxicated state.
