Our Team

Tina Wagon

Tina qualified as a solicitor in 1999 and became principal of Wheldon Law in 2014.  She has extensive experience in criminal law, particularly serious crime including murder, drugs and sexual offences.  However, she is probably best known for her expertise in dangerous dog cases, having acted in some of the most high profile cases in this field in the last 10 years.  She also acts as a specialist legal adviser to Dogs Trust.

Gareth Hawden

Gareth joined the firm 6 years ago and has built up a loyal following of clients who appreciate his frank and honest advice and know that he will always go the extra mile for them.  Although he is experienced in the full range of criminal law, he is becoming increasingly well known as an expert in firearms law, a field in which he has had some notable successes, and a subject on which he has lectured.  Gareth supervises our magistrates’ court department.

Ciaran Steele

Ciaran qualified as a solicitor 36 years ago in Northern Ireland where he gained extensive experience in serious crime, family and civil law and acted as an advocate in the crown court.  His meticulous preparation and impressive advocacy skills, combined with a friendly, approachable manner make him a very safe pair of hands. Ciaran runs our crown court department as well as representing clients in the magistrates’ court.

Andy Wheldon

Andy has been a solicitor for more than 35 years and is known for his advocacy skills, his knowledge of road traffic law and his friendly, approachable manner.

Martin Crawford-Brown

Martin originally qualified as a barrister in 2002 and then worked as a legal adviser in the magistrates’ court before qualifying as a solicitor in 2004.  Martin has a broad range of experience in all aspects of criminal law but is probably best known for his expertise in motoring law.
