After successful completion of pupillage, Victoria Shehadeh joined Chambers in April 2017 and now practises both criminal and regulatory law.
Victoria appears before the Crown Court and Magistrates’ Court defending and prosecuting a wide range of criminal matters, including probation breach proceedings. Her practise extends to defence in quasi–criminal areas such as cash forfeiture proceedings and enforcement proceedings.
She also regularly conducts fitness to practise hearings before the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s panels, and has undertaken a secondment with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. She has acted as a case presenter in a large number of substantive hearings, including those brought against managers of care homes.
Prior to coming to Chambers, Victoria worked as a paralegal in the business and white collar crime departments of Peters & Peters LLP, and assisted in starting the Schools Consent Project, an initiative educating school pupils about the law around consent and sexual offences.
