Alison Gurden is an international trial and mitigation consultant. She is a Barrister, with over 20 years experience, practicing from Drystone Chambers in London, and specializing in criminal law.
Although now solely practising in criminal defense, Alison spent over 7 years working for the Crown Prosecution Service (the English equivalent to the State Attorney’s Office). She brings a knowledge of prosecution techniques and theories to her defense practice, which is often invaluable in defending complex and high profile criminal cases. Since 2010, she has worked on death penalty trials and sentencing, and resentencing of juveniles who were sentenced to Life Without Parole in the USA.
Alison has a unique talent of finding the novel legal argument or mitigation approach to ensure the client has the best defense, and her extensive knowledge and experience of both USA criminal law, English Criminal Law and European Human Rights means she often brings new ideas to a case.Contact Me
