Maxine Barker | Consultant

mbarker@hja.net 020 7874 8372

I was admitted as a solicitor in 1986. I worked at Alistair Porter & Co of Lincolns Inn Fields, becoming a salaried partner there and subsequently at the ensuing partnership of Porters in Tottenham, North London.

When Porters closed in 2006 I became a Consultant at Tottenham High Road firm Needham Poulier. I joined Hodge Jones and Allen as a Consultant in October 2011.

Throughout my 27 years as a solicitor I have specialised in all forms of criminal defence law. I have a loyal following of clients, some of whom I have represented since the very beginning of my career.

I have acted for defendants charged with a broad range of offences. These have ranged from murder, sexual offences, other serious assaults and fraud to driving offences and theft.
