    Personal profile

    Letitia appears as both a junior alone and led junior across the spectrum of criminal offences. She has recently acted in cases of Serious Violence, Drug Offences, Human Trafficking and other Serious & Organised Crime.

    Letitia prosecutes at CPS Grade 2 and has been instructed by the SFO as disclosure review counsel. She is therefore well versed in material-heavy cases and complex disclosure exercises.

    Letitia also accepts instructions in Regulatory & Professional Disciplinary proceedings, including defending for the Association of Optometrists.


    Letitia has experience in all areas of criminal law.

    • R v MH (2021) – Letitia argued that activating MH’s 24-week SSO would be unjust despite him breaching it after recent imposition by similar re-offending. The breach was marked by way of fine only.
