As a solicitor admitted to the roll in 2019 Nyara has steadily built a solid practice in legally aided lower crime work.

Nyara spearheads a team of five enthusiastic paralegals in the magistrates’ court and police station departments in Lloyds PR Solicitors. Some of her daily criminal defence work involves vulnerable individuals accused of committing drugs offences, youth suspects and marginalised members of society. Furthering this objective, she fearlessly unravels minute details of youth drugs cases where the defence of duress under the National Referral Mechanism may be available. In addition, she has an unremitting strive to make a difference in the front line of the criminal justice system. She takes a keen interest in dishonesty, driving offences and sexual offences. 


As a Legal Aid Agency accredited supervisor, Nyara oversees magistrates’ court and police station matters of the firm. Due to her sharp thinking and quick decision-making skills, Nyara has become Lloyds PR’s “go-to” person when it comes to the firm’s day-to-day operations. Her personality has primarily been moulded by her devotion to youth justice which generates a “can do” attitude. This in turn compliments the type of practice she has gradually built over the years involving some of the most vulnerable individuals in our society. 


Representing clients at the police station or court and assertively furthering their interests with the authorities is what defines her. During her stay at Lloyds PR, she has conducted over 800 cases. She has successfully assessed each client’s account, built a good rapport, especially those cases labelled as a ‘dead end’ by her peers. She has left no stone unturned to put forward and built a strong defence at the trial stage when executing magistrates court preparation. She is also defined by her personable approach and described by her superiors as “exceptional talent”. 


The firm’s magistrates court and police station departments revolve around her instructions and entrusted leadership. Her contribution to the firm is demonstrated by her loyalty to the clients she advises. Her robust approach in challenging the front-line authorities of the criminal justice system is sharpened by her inherent ability to identify weaknesses and inconsistencies in the Crown’s case. Be it at a police station interview or bail hearing at the magistrates’ court, such skills are utilised to ensure that each case is worth fighting for based on its merits.
