Ellie AkhgarSolicitor

I am the Head of Crime at this practice.  I am a senior solicitor and an experienced Higher Court Advocate specialising in defending allegations of serious sexual offences, murder, large scale drug conspiracies and complex fraud. I pride myself on working at all stages of criminal practice from the police station to the Court of Appeal and I am instructed on both private and legal aid cases.

Over the recent years, I have gained significant experience in defending allegations of serious sexual crimes. I have represented clients all over the country for offences ranging from possession of indecent images to historic sexual abuse cases involving both adult and children complainants. I am known for advancing interesting defences for sex cases such as sexomnia (sleep sex) and confabulation (the creation of false memories). I aim to explore every avenue necessary to get the best results for my clients and I am keen to instruct the most advanced technological and medical experts to assist in reaching not guilty verdicts.

I am a keen advocate and I have represented clients in the Crown Courts since 2013.  I have advocated as junior counsel on murder cases at the Central Criminal Court and Birmingham Crown Court and I have defended as advocate on the second of the Rotherham child exploitation trials. I always undertake Crown Court work on a legal aid basis but I continue to grow a flourishing private client base for those that require more one to one commitment from their lawyer. I have a reputation for my focus on client care. This is something that all of my clients are keen to comment on at the conclusion of their cases.
