Caroline Sumeray - Inquests, Public Inquiries and Coronial Law

Having been appointed in 8 diverse and busy Coronial jurisdictions I have gained considerable experience and have now conducted several hundred inquests. I have experience of complex inquests as well as Article 2 and death-in-custody and jury cases and treasure inquests, and have heard a number of high profile cases which have received national media coverage.
