Sunita has specialised exclusively in criminal defence work since 2003. She has gained considerable experience prior to being admitted as a Solicitor in 2008 and continued to develop her practice since. Sunita has worked on the full spectrum of criminal cases, including several high-profile cases.

Sunita is now involved in preparing some of the firm’s most serious and complex cases with a particular emphasis on murder, firearms, serious violence and large-scale drug offences. She is currently involved in a number of cases including Operation Pretoria, Operation Headpiece, Operation Yacinoro, Operation Flores and Operation Salmson.

Sunita also has substantial experience in dealing with sexual offences and fraud. Sunita is the lead solicitor for Operation Geode as well as preparing a number of sensitive cases dealing with unique sexual offences.

Sunita’s respectful and reassuring manner coupled with a meticulous approach to preparation instils confidence in clients. Her attention to detail and client focused approach ensures that clients are provided with the best weaponry to defend their cases. Her caring and empathetic approach ensures clients are provided with support at the most trying of times, especially when in custody.

Sunita currently heads up the team at our Walthamstow office. She oversees several fee earners and ensures that a high-quality standard is met for each of our clients, which is evident from our continuous achievements and year on year Lexcel accreditation.

Sunita now mainly deals with cases where clients have been charged with serious violent offences or sexual offences. These cases need to be handled more sensitively as they often involve vulnerable complainants/witnesses, defendants with health difficulties and expert evidence. These issues are inherent in a number of these types of cases making the case more complex from the outset, as these also usually involve legal argument about non defendant bad character, prior sexual relationships and a number of other legal issues which need to be explored with the client. Furthermore, there are often novel or ever-changing legal arguments that are involved so need to be borne in mind when preparing the case.

Sunita is a valued member of the defence team and works with extremely experienced Counsel and Queens Counsel. Her organised approach to cases and ability to get into the minutia of the evidence as well as instructions is invaluable.
