Robert Barley joined Norton Peskett Solicitors on April Fool’s Day 1997, having graduated with an Honours degree in Law from Trent Polytechnic (now Nottingham Trent University) in 1989.
He qualified as a Solicitor in 1993 and has specialised in Criminal Law throughout the majority of his career. He was appointed Partner in 1998 and joined the firm’s Management Board in 2000. He is the firm's Compliance Officer for Legal Practice (COLP) and has day to day responsibility for the running of the Criminal and Regulatory Department.
Robert specialises in all aspects of Criminal Law and has not only defended clients but has also prosecuted for Government agencies. He has been Police Station Duty Solictor qualified since 1994 and is a holder of the Higher Rights qualification enabling him to appear in all criminal courts. The department has been involved in many of the highest profile local cases during his time with Norton Pesket Solicitors but also in Courts across the country.
While born in Lowestoft, Robert spent the majority of his younger days travelling the world, living in Africa and throughout the Middle East with his parents. He still suffers from ‘itchy feet’ but being married and having children can no longer afford to do so! Known for jumping out of planes, bungee jumping and white water rafting amongst other things, he has now decided to settle down and spends his time gardening, going down the pub, watching Ipswich Town FC and exercising because he thinks he ought to!
