Advises on following areas of law:
- Criminal Law
- Youth Crime
Samuel’s particular strength is giving generalist advice. Prior to joining TV Edwards he volunteered at the Citizen’s Advice Barking initially as a gateway assessor but in a short space of time he was giving generalist advice. Whilst studying the GDL Sam took part in pro-bono work for Streetlaw UK, delivering presentations and educating people in homeless shelters about their legal rights.
Samuel became interested in Criminal Law during undergraduate studies. He undertook work experience after graduating from university at another law firm specialising in criminal defence work. He then subsequently went on to complete mini pupillages at crime chambers 187 Fleet Street and Red Lion Chambers. Sam’s dissertation on the BPTC was based on the Juvenile Justice System, determining whether the levels of offending of juveniles has increased or reduced in the last 20 years (post 1998 Crime and Disorder Act).
Samuel has been a voluntary trustee of Community Care Worldwide since 2009 which is a charity that was started by his family. The charity operates in the London Borough of Newham teaching skills and providing assistance to vulnerable people in the community through projects that we have developed.
