Jonas Milner has amassed a considerable amount of experience in cases of the most serious nature, both alone and as a led junior.
Jonas regularly appears in the Crown Court in cases of serious violence, dishonesty and drug offences. Acting alone he has conducted cases of possession of large quantities of drugs with intent to supply, robbery, sexual assault, kidnap, threats to kill and causing grievous bodily harm with intent. As a led junior, Jonas has been instructed in cases of conspiracy to murder, conspiracy to defraud, rape and perverting the course of justice. In addition Jonas continues to accept instructions for more complex matters in the Magistrates’ Courts, including for example private prosecutions by authorities such as Transport for London.
Jonas’ substantial previous experience in complicated medical negligence work means that he is extremely adept at analysing intricate medical evidence. As a result he now appears regularly in cases where doctors and other medical professionals face charges brought by their regulatory bodies, including the General Medical Council, General Optical Council and Nursing and Midwiffery Council. Recent cases have included acting on behalf of a surgical registrar accused of sexual misconduct and for a senior nurse accused of assaulting a mentally disordered amputee. Moreover Jonas is instructed by the UK Council for Psychotherapy to present their professional discipline cases.
Jonas is increasingly instructed in complex cases where the evidence spans many thousands of pages, most recently as first junior for the main defendants in a 10-week conspiracy to defraud trial, and in defending both a company and its director from over 100 alleged fire safety breaches. He has also acted on behalf of the relatives of a deceased child at the Coroner’s Court.
Driving offences are a speciality, with Jonas frequently advising in conference and appearing at Court in order to ensure the retention of driving licences for his clients. He has an exceptional record of success in such cases.
