Professional Highlight

Brian’s professional highlight to date is working on a complex criminal matter involving a youth offender which was dealt with in the Crown Court.

Brian provided Police Station representation on this matter on three separate occasions. The Youth Offender was a vulnerable individual and mainly due to the advice Brian provided at the Police Station and the work Brian did on file when the case reached the Crown Court it was dismissed on a submission of no case to answer.
