Prior to working as a lawyer, Warwick worked at Hull University Union as Vice-President (Welfare) where he had responsibility for leading and organising student campaigns and services relating to student welfare.

Warwick advises and represents individuals seeking to challenge public body decisions. His cases include challenges to the level and type of social care support for vulnerable clients (including disabled adults, children in need, care leavers, age disputed unaccompanied asylum-seeking minors and families with no recourse to public funds).

In education law, Warwick has experience in representing parents in relation to the provision of suitable education for their children with special educational needs.
