Afaya is an experienced lawyer who initially started her career whilst studying as a police station representative in 2006 successfully qualifying in 2011.  Afaya now specialises in exclusively defending clients where they are facing charges such as murder, gang related multi handed conspiracies in supplying drugs, importation, armed robberies, serious sexual offences and fraud.

Afaya’s practice encompasses both high net individuals in a private capacity to working on publicly funded (legal aid) cases.

Afaya’s strengths include providing robust advice from the outset, in some cases prior to an investigation commencing. Her diligent advice from an early stage ensures cases are dealt with in the best manner achieving the best outcome for her clients.

Afaya is remarked on her ability to examine with a fine tooth comb vast amounts of evidence in swiftly identifying the issues at heart from the early stages of her case.

Afaya’s meticulous and ruthless approach to seek disclosure (further evidence) in ensuring a case is fully prepared to trial has led to her cases being ‘offered no evidence’ at the 11th hour before trial.  It is this approach that has given Afaya the reputation she holds as an accomplished lawyer.

Afaya has amassed an own client following which goes to reflect her dedication to her clients.

Afaya’s welcoming and well disposed manner has meant clients feel at ease with her from the first meeting and confident that Afaya will fight their case to the end.

Afaya works alongside the UK’s leading Silks and Experts in ensuring the client is represented with the best professionals.
