Criminal Advocate, Par Excellence

Howard Godfrey QC

Privacy Policy

Master strategist and tactician, Howard Godfrey QC is renowned as one of the UK’s best criminal barristers.

Howard’s reputation and vast experience as an advocate par excellence, spanning over 40 years, and over 20 as a QC – is both national and international.  He has defended clients  charged with both serious and less serious crimes - including, appeals, murder, manslaughter, tax and company fraud, money laundering, drugs, and disciplinary tribunal cases.

Howard’s standing as one of the UK’s very best criminal barristers stems not simply from his knowledge of the law but from his cross-examination skills and the power of his jury advocacy.  As Howard himself says “The judge rules on the law, but it is the jurors who decide my clients’ fate.”

Master Strategist, Master Tactician

As a master strategist, before getting immersed in the detail of a case, Howard stands back and takes an overview, so that the best way to attack the prosecution shines through. As a master tactician, Howard often gets his client acquitted even before the jury trial begins.

Howard sees his core role in the early stages of a case as manoeuvering his client into the best possible position before the trial even begins.  A not guilty verdict can arise and often does, as a consequence of Howard’s intensive focus on pre-trial disclosure of information from the prosecution. This push for disclosure can reveal for example that critical evidence has been lost or improperly obtained, or there has been misconduct by the police.

If you or a family member would like representation by one
of the UK’s very best criminal barristers and QC’s,
and would like to discuss your case, please feel free
to contact me for an initial conversation.
