Peter Baker - Trainee Solicitor

Peter Baker graduated from Aberystwyth University in 2015 with a degree in Biochemistry, before obtaining a Graduate Law degree at BPP Law School. Whilst at BPP, Peter volunteered at the Free Representation Unit, a legal charity offering free advice and assistance to people appealing benefits decision, where he gained valuable experience in preparing cases and representing claimants at tribunals. He also spent several months working in Parliament as an intern in the office of a shadow Minister.

Peter then completed his Legal Practice Course, during which he achieved 84% in his Advanced Criminal Litigation module. On graduation, Peter began working as a paralegal and has specialised in criminal defence work since. He quickly progressed to handling his own caseload, including robberies, public order offences and general violent crime. He is particularly skilled in youth offending work, where his representations on public interest, in a case of a young man caught with over 100 wraps of class A drugs, successfully persuaded the prosecution to discontinue the case before it came to trial. His work also obtained a ‘no case to answer’ result for a 15-year-old accused of a robbery on a joint enterprise basis.

Peter has been a police station representative since March 2018. He joined Goldman Bailey as a paralegal in February 2019 and is now fully accredited to advise on all police station matters. He has represented clients accused of offences including kidnapping and possession of firearms whilst at the firm and has also worked closely with our solicitors on a wide range of criminal cases. Peter is now a Trainee Solicitor, working in criminal defence, immigration and public law matters, and will qualify as a Solicitor in April 2021.
