Nick Redhead studied law at Oxford University before qualifying as a solicitor in 1991. Since then, he has worked exclusively in the field of criminal law and has represented defendants charged with the full range of criminal offences including murder, manslaughter, robbery and serious drugs offences. He holds a right of audience in the higher courts for criminal proceedings which allows him to represent in person clients whose cases come before the Crown Court or Court of Appeal.

Nick has worked in Wiltshire and the surrounding area since qualification. For several years he was a partner at Richard Griffiths & Co before teaming up with Paul Jones to form Redhead & Jones in 2010. He has been a member of the Salisbury Duty Solicitor Scheme for many years.

Paul Jones studied law at Sheffield University, graduating in 1984. He trained as a solicitor at Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand. On qualification in 1987 joined Mossop & Bowser as a solicitor specialising in Criminal Law. He became a partner in the firm in 1993. Paul moved to Salisbury in 1998 and took up a position with Bonallack & Bishop where he again dealt in the main with criminal defence work. In 2010 he formed Redhead & Jones with Nick Redhead.

Paul has substantial experience of criminal defence work of all types and has dealt with a number of high profile cases. These have included the biggest single importation of illegal immigrants into Great Britain; the successful defence of a soldier charged with causing the death of another soldier through over exertion; and a recent case of some legal complexity before the Courts Martial Appeal Court which will result in changes in the way in which Courts Martial are conducted.

Trevor Line is a consultant solicitor at Redhead & Jones. He qualified as a solicitor in 1981, and in 1991 was granted higher rights of audience, enabling him to appear in person to represent clients in the Crown Court and Court of Appeal. He has practised criminal law throughout his career and has particular experience of Court Martial matters.

Although Trevor has been based in the Salisbury area throughout his career, his cases – particularly those involving the defence of military personnel – have taken him to many parts of the world. He ran his own practice in Amesbury for many years and following its sale has continued to work locally as a consultant. He remains a member of the Salisbury Duty Solicitor Scheme.

Matthew George is a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives, and was one of the earliest Legal Executives to be awarded rights of audience to appear as an advocate in the criminal courts. He subsequently became a member of the Salisbury Duty Solicitor Scheme and was appointed head of the Criminal Department at Richard Griffiths & Co. He joined Redhead & Jones as a consultant in 2019.

Matthew deals with the full range of criminal cases and in the recent past had conduct of the only double murder case to arise in the Salisbury area during the present century. He is well known to prosecutors and police for his robust and no-nonsense approach on behalf of his clients.
