Criminal Defence Solicitor Joins Russell & Russell

Author: Howard Jones

Russell & Russell has made a key appointment to its criminal defence department in Chester.

Richard Thomas joins the firm from Walker Smith Way, part of the Slater Gordon network, to work alongside the existing defence team at our White Friars based practice.

Having graduated as a solicitor in 1999, Richard went on to ascertain his Higher Rights in 2009. This allows him to act for clients both as a solicitor and at advocacy level.

“Richard’s experience of criminal law is very impressive”, said Howard Jones, head of Russell & Russell’s criminal law department in Chester. “He has a successful track record at the Court of Appeal and Crown Court and brings with him a host of skills that will enhance the department and provide invaluable assistance to our clients.”
