Rachel Roberts


Criminal Defence

Rachel has worked in criminal law since 2003,  initially assisting counsel in the Crown Court.  Within her first couple of years of working she was very excited to have gained a scholarship for the College of Law,  qualifying as a solicitor in 2009. 

Rachel has since worked for firms in the Brighton, Worthing and Crawley area where she specialised in all areas of criminal law as well as advising and assisting at the police station, joining the criminal defence team at Churchers in 2018.

Rachel's work is supervised by senior members of the department.

  • And in her spare time
  • Rachel loves reading and creative writing, along with a great love for history, especially Shakespeare. Rachel also enjoys skiing and keeping fit and last but not least, spending time with her cute dog.


  • My clients love what I do
  • "I wanted to drop you a line to say how impressed my family were with the service we recently received from Rachel.  I felt very strongly that Rachel was the best person who supported my daughter at the station and followed on with myself.    I would recommend her strongly,  she has empathy and really made the process easy to understand and was always, I felt, going the extra mile as we say in business.

  • "Thank you for all your help and advice, you were like a life line when I arrived and saw you. You made a difference to an awful day"
  • "I would just like to say that whilst my case is far from over, from my arrest until today’s hearing that Rachel has been outstanding.  I have been kept updated throughout and have had no issues contacting her and she’s made me feel at ease in what is a very stressful situation, often people think that especially when dealing with a client using legal aid (like myself) that you will basically be forgotten about, however,  Rachel has looked after me and is a credit to your firm.  I would also like to say that Ruth Lee’s has likewise been incredibly helpful looking after my administrative matters and has also been really easy to contact.  Both of these ladies do you credit   I am more than content that your firm are the best people to represent me based on the actions of both Rachel and Ruth."
