Becoming a member of chambers on completion of her pupillage, Eve practises in the areas of Family, Crime and Civil, appearing before all Courts in England and Wales.
Eve has had recent success in the Court of Appeal, in which Jackson LJ and Flaux LJ commented on Eve’s “helpful written submissions and firm oral submissions”. During pupillage, and continuing into tenancy, she has undertaken extensive work on behalf of Essex Police in relation to breaches of gang injunctions. Her work representing the Chief Constable of Essex Police, both as Applicant in numerous committal proceedings and later as Respondent at subsequent appeals against sentence has gained praise. Eve successfully persuaded the Court in Korta-Haupt and Anor. v Chief Constable of Essex Police  EWCA Civ 892 that they should not interfere with the contemnors’ immediate custodial sentences and that there is not an entitlement to a ‘COVID discount’ as the Appellants sought to submit.
Instructed at all stages of proceedings in both private and public law children matters, Eve undertakes work on behalf of all parties, be that parent, child or Local Authority. She also has experience with ancillary applications including non-molestation orders and occupation orders. Notably, Eve has had success in opposing an application for both non-molestation and occupation orders where the parties were living together following the breakdown of their relationship despite adverse findings having been made against her client.
Broadening her experience, Eve is appearing before the High Court as a led Junior on behalf of a parent in an ongoing Public Law matter involving serious non-accidental injuries, in which the fact-finding is set to last four weeks.
Eve accepts instructions for the Crown and defence, regularly undertaking trials in the Magistrates’ Courts, and taking committals, mentions and probation breaches in the Crown Court. In a recent high-profile sentence at Ipswich Crown Court, Eve demonstrated her skills of persuasion in successfully arguing that a defendant, convicted of multiple attempted child sex offences, should be spared immediate custody in order to allow for his rehabilitation.
Eve undertakes a variety of civil hearings, including small claim trials, possession proceedings as well as fast track matters. Other civil proceedings include Contempt of Court and Domestic Violence Protection Orders.
