Winners of the awards were announced at a ceremony last night on 31 October 2019 at the Hilton on Park Lane.

Judy is Joint Head of Garden Court Chambers. She was called to the Bar in 1989 and took silk in 2010. Judy’s practice crosses a spectrum of serious crime. She is predominantly briefed in murder cases, often involving gang-related killings committed by young defendants. She also specialises in cases involving serious sexual allegations.

Judy also spent two years representing a number of families at the landmark Hillsborough Inquests that concluded 96 people had been unlawfully killed. Judy led a team of barristers at the inquests who dealt with the medical and pathology evidence.

Chambers & Partners describe Judy as "an excellent and impressive advocate who works tirelessly on a case. She is a ferocious advocate, who is totally dedicated to clients.”

In addition, Garden Court Chambers won the Outstanding Contribution to Diversity & Inclusion Award (Set/Chambers) and Sonali Naik QC of Garden Court Chambers won the Highly Commended Award for Outstanding Contribution to Diversity & Inclusion Award (Individual) at the Chambers Bar Awards 2019 on the same night.
