Kevin McCallum called in 2000 after 10 years as a solicitor both as a Procurator Fiscal Depute and in private practice. His practice at the Bar mainly involves criminal defence work, but also the conduct of Fatal Accident Inquiries and Social Work Referral proofs.

He joined Crown Office as an Advocate Depute in February 2004 and was thereafter appointed a Senior Advocate Depute in November 2006, with responsibility for the preparation and conduct of a significant number of intensive, large scale and high profile prosecutions often including multiple accused.

Since returning to defence practice in 2010, he has been instructed in a wide variety of cases including multiple accused high value drugs cases, money laundering offences, firearms offences and serious sexual offences including allegations of historic sexual abuse either acting as junior alone or acting as junior as leader.
