Rachel Smith - Director & Higher Rights Advocate
Having graduated from Plymouth University in 2009, Rachel has specialised in Criminal Defence work throughout her career, having spent 7 years at a busy North London firm where she completed all aspects of her training, before relocating back to Devon.
She has been representing clients at the Police Station for a number of years, with cases ranging from murder to speeding and everything in between. She was admitted as a Solicitor in 2015 and quickly went on to obtain her Duty Solicitor status.
Rachel has obtained her Higher Rights of Audience, which means she is able to represent her clients in the Crown Court. She also regularly appears at the Magistrates and Youth Courts for all types of hearings and she prides herself on fighting tirelessly for every client to ensure the best possible outcome can be achieved.
Away from the office, Rachel can normally be found travelling the country watching Chelsea play football, or enjoying a glass of wine.
"I have no hesitation in recommending Rundlewalker and in particular Rachel Smith who helped us navigate through a difficult case with compassion, professionalism and patience. She made a harrowing experience more bearable by always being there to answer queries or concerns and by making it her mission to achieve the best possible outcome. Thank you for everything."
