Peter was instructed as Junior Counsel in the four week Inquests touching the deaths of Cerys Yemm and Matthew Williams in Argoed
Peter was called to the Bar by Lincoln’s Inn in 2012 and became a tenant at 30 Park Place in 2015 following successful completion of pupillage under the supervision of Tracey Lloyd-Nesling (Crime) and Max Davies (Family).
During his pupillage, Peter gained valuable and in depth experience across all Chambers’ practice areas and spent considerable time with other members of Chambers. He now regularly appears in the County, Family, Magistrates’ and Crown Courts (both prosecuting and defending); and in the Immigration Tribunal.
Peter has particular interest in criminal law, regulatory matters and civil litigation and has quickly gained appreciation for his diligence, dedication and judgment. His determination, thorough preparation and commitment to his cases has been recognised by those instructing him and he seeks to provide an approachable and professional style, tackling issues head on and dealing with difficulties as they arise.
Peter is developing a mixed practice covering all Chambers’ practice areas.
Peter was educated in Cardiff and Halesowen in the West Midlands before returning to study Law at Cardiff University. He remained in Cardiff for the Bar Professional Training Course where he obtained the highest grade of ‘Outstanding’ and received a number of awards for his performance. Prior to starting pupillage Peter obtained a distinction in the LLM in Legal Practice and worked at Hugh James Solicitors in the Nursing Care Department, gaining valuable experience assisting and speaking for clients at NHS Review Panels. Peter then went on to work for the international development charity Christian Aid as the Wales Regional and Legacies Coordinator, doing advocacy and speaking at numerous campaigning and fundraising events.
Outside of work Peter enjoys music, playing hockey and attending his Church.
He is also a committed Welsh language learner.
