Initially trained in psychology, Helen worked for some time in a Psychiatric Secure Unit
in Bristol before studying Law in Manchester.

Helen practised at Maidments Solicitors in Manchester before joining Brian Koffman
& Co in 1996. She was made a partner there in 2000. Helen then set up RH Law
with fellow partner Simon Harrison in 2008.

In her career as a criminal lawyer she has dealt with an incredibly diverse range

make at such a stressful time.

Crown Court. She specialises in Crown Court advocacy and has dealt with matters including arson, blackmail, GBH, sexual assault, fraud, firearms, robbery and armed robbery and the supply of drugs. She has also appeared at the Court of Appeal
