Background

With over ten years’ experience in litigation and criminal defence, Skye understands that the ‘solicitor-client’ relationship is built on trust. Trust, that your solicitor will take an unrelenting approach in defence of your rights and in pursuit of the best possible outcome.

She has established a reputation for being a fiercely loyal defence advocate, ensuring her clients are thoroughly protected from investigation to sentence and everything in between.

Skye is the first person in her family to attain a university degree and is all too familiar with the chain of cause and effect of the criminal justice system that extends beyond the offender. This experience affords her a unique ability to support not just her clients, but also her client’s loved ones in navigating their way through the justice system with patience and compassion.
