About George Steel

George is a solicitor in our Criminal Defence team. He has a wide range of experience in both general and serious criminal defence work, assisting clients from the police investigation stage all the way up to the Crown Court.

Prior to joining HJA, he spent five years working for a boutique criminal defence firm in London. During this time, he qualified as a solicitor and obtained Master of Laws specialising in white-collar crime.


George is a compelling advocate, having had the quality of his representation acknowledged by District Judges in the Magistrates Court. His pragmatic and understanding approach assists clients accused of allegations of a complex nature or those unfamiliar with the criminal justice system.

George invariably strives to obtain the best results for his clients, covering both legally aided and privately funded cases.
