Joseph Barlow

Call: 2021


Joseph appears daily in the Magistrates’, Youth and Crown Courts, dealing with a broad range of criminal matters, including violent offences, sexual offences, drugs offences, driving offences, dishonesty offences and public order.

Meticulous in his approach to cases, Solicitors have noted that Joseph is “…very capable and undeniably efficient…” and has “…brought a fresh and technical perspective to the cases…” he has been instructed on. From the point of instruction, Joseph works closely with his instructing solicitors to ensure that critical issues are identified quickly and all lines of enquiry are explored. Joseph’s approach to cases has led to him gaining a track record in securing acquittals, both after trial and on submissions of no case to answer, and lenient sentences.

Prior to joining Furnival, Joseph worked as a paralegal assisting one of the country’s leading lawyers in the preparation and progression of appeals by victims of human trafficking and modern slavery who had been convicted in the course of their exploitation.
