"Gamekeeper turned poacher"

I am a former Police Officer with the Lancashire Constabulary who changed direction some years ago. Having been a Custody Sergeant, Specialist Road Traffic Officer and Advanced Driving Instructor, I have seen life on the other side.

I have developed a thriving practice in serious crime and road traffic law. I specialise in trial advocacy and am extremely successful and respected as such.

I have now been a Duty Solicitor for many years.


What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?

Seeing the smile of relief on the faces of my clients and their families, together with the intellectual challenge Criminal Law and dealing with institutions of the state offers.

Why did you choose a career in the legal sector?

Following a serious Road Traffic Accident whilst a serving Police Officer, a redirection was required. Numerous Barrister and Solicitor friends made it an easy choice.

  • Fantastic solicitors would highly recommend!

    Fantastic solicitors would highly recommend!

    Mr Phoenix dealt with my case in a highly professional manner, the communication was constant which eased my mind through the stressful time!

  • Huge thank you for your representation

    Robin Phoenix represented me with a 'totting' up of points issue at Preston Magistrates Court on the 11th March 2020. Robin was highly recommended to me by a good friend. I must say from the first moment I met Robin his whole approach and professionalism has been second to none.

    I met with Robin on a few occasions before the date in Court. During those meetings I was grilled by Robin and we discussed our approach to the case and how we would hopefully prove 'exceptional hardship' to the Magistrates.

    Robin took a great deal of time to understand the situation of exceptional hardship and was completely honest and transparent about my chances and the potential outcomes, he also gave very clear and concise instructions on what I needed to do to help him prepare to represent me to the best of his abilities.

    On the day in Court Robin presented my case exceptionally well and also made me feel completely at ease in a situation I have never been in before (and hopefully never will again).

    The outcome was a positive one, and I genuinely feel without Robin's vast experience in this field, his approachable but highly professional style and advice, the outcome would have been very different.

    I would strongly recommend Robin and his services to anybody in a similar situation, and whilst I would without doubt use him again, I really hope I won't have to....

  • Excellent Service

    I would like to thank Robin Phoenix for his help, advice and support throughout my ordeal. He helped me through a difficult period and treated me as a human being rather than a client. Great service and very affordable costs. Many thanks to all in the team.Mr Waite
