About this deal

He has been a Criminal Defence Advocate now for nearly 34 years, and he has made a name for himself with regular appearances on British television quiz shows such as Fifteen-To-One, The Weakest Link, Greed, and Are You an Egghead?

No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. In 2004, Wallace became a champion of the BBC general knowledge quiz, Mastermind, which also tests a contestant's aptitude on a subject of their choice. Despite some negative reviews I found it an excellent read giving an insight to his early years and legal career. Born on the 2nd of June 1960 to Jamaican parents, Shaun is a Londoner born and bred, and has been a devoted Chelsea fan since 1967.

On 26 October 2016, Wallace was found to have failed to comply with his duty while representing a defendant in criminal proceedings. uk aka The Dark Destroyer and Legal Eagle,is releasing his autobiography, Chasing the Dream, with Cranthorpe Millner Publishers.

Read how Shaun’s passions have helped turn him into the man he is today: staunchly just and fair, ruthless when he needs to be, kind, fun, and a fiercely loyal friend. In the real and pragmatic world, that may be true, but given the person that I am and have always been, that will never prevent me from chasing what I have always aspired to. The quiz sections are interesting if you are a quizzer but there is no mention of The Chase which is rather bizarre given the cover photo and blurb’s reference to it. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Shaun catapulted to national prominence and recognition when, on the 5 th December 2004, he became the first black person to win the BBC’s renowned Mastermind.He has been a Criminal Defence Advocate now for nearly 34 years, and has worked tirelessly on cases ranging from murder to money laundering to firearms to drug trafficking.

Shaun catapulted to national prominence and recognition when, on the 5th December 2004, he became the first black person to win the BBCs renowned Mastermind. Seeing him on the chase gives the impression of someone who has arrived but to know the struggle behind the success is truly inspiring. Since 2009, Wallace has appeared as a "chaser" on the UK television series The Chase, a teatime game show which airs on ITV.Really enjoyed the first half, all About how he got to the Bar, but second half I'm struggling with getting into the Chase. Other shows that he has been a contestant on include Fifteen to One and The Weakest Link, [6] plus the British adaptation of Greed. He was a member of Farringdon Barristers Chambers until February 2012, when it was announced that he had joined Great James Street Chambers. In 2018, he featured as a guest chaser on the Australian version of the show, alongside fellow UK chasers Hegerty and Labbett.
