Simon joined the firm as a trainee after graduating top of his class at Glasgow University. Since 2004 he has consistently been conducting trials covering all areas of criminal law in over 40 courts in Scotland, as well as Courts Martial in England.

In 2010 he became the second youngest Solicitor Advocate in the criminal courts, winning his first two High Court cases the same year. Since then he has conducted a number of High Court trials with particular success in serious sexual offences. He has also assisted senior counsel in cases including murder and high value financial crimes, whilst continuing to practice in the Sheriff Courts at both summary and solemn level. He has also appeared in the Court of Appeal, including the reported cases of Neill v HMA [2014] HCJAC 67 and McGartland v HMA [2015] HCJAC 23.

In 2013 he was the youngest of three finalists for Criminal Lawyer of the Year in the Scottish Law Awards. He is currently instructed in a complex fraud case anticipated by the Scottish press to be "the trial of the century".
