Mark Jones

Spear’s Review

Mark Jones, partner at Payne Hicks Beach, describes his practice as ‘definitely, definitely criminal’.

Criminal defence work at Payne Hick Beach sits within the dispute resolution team, but Jones is still occasionally called to the police station in the middle of the night. 'Normally my job involves arranging an interview by appointment so that we can go at a much more reasonable time. But obviously when something is quite urgent and an arrest is necessary, then it does on occasion involve me going to the police station at unsociable time,' he said.

Contact with a client as early as possible in the process, well ahead of any formal police involvement, is key, Jones added. ‘We try to get ahead of the curve to work out exactly what we need to do.’
