Skills and Personal Qualities
As a seasoned advocate, Alun feels confident in his ability to take the daily twists and turns of the court process in his stride. But there are always surprises, which keep him sharp and interested.
Blessed with a good memory for detail, he can assimilate complex casework quickly. His many years at the Bar help him identify and focus on the issues that require attention and which go the heart of a case.
He aims to promote confidence in the prosecution service in others, particularly those who are giving evidence in court, seeking their continued participation in the event of delays and adjournments. Whether civilian witnesses, defendants, experts or police, He listens to what they say, explains what will happen, and provides reassurance to secure their trust and co-operation.
He has built a sound, flexible working relationships with prosecution professionals, caseworkers, and police officers, placing emphasis on effective communication.
He is tenacious when pursuing important issues, taking the initiative to problem solve. Equally, he is realistic when there is little prospect of success, and will speak his mind.
Calm, self-assured, and with an articulate, distinctive speaking voice, he is a persuasive advocate with a good track record of success for whosoever instructs him.
