3 May 2022 – CPS drop the case
Success is sometimes preventing a case from going to trial. Very hard work and persistence by Sandra Riordan persuaded the CPS not to proceed against a vulnerable young woman alleged to have assaulted emergency workers. A good example of protecting a person from criminalisation. When the real issues are treatment and help for very serious personal and mental health problems.
3 May 2022 – Limiting the damage
Cases can have mixed results and still be judged to have successful outcomes. Greg Powell instructed Gilly Jones QC of Red Lion chambers and Minka Braun of Garden Court in a complex large scale drug supply and money laundering conspiracy. Our client pleaded guilty to just one count of the indictment on an agreed basis to money laundering. The client avoided the risk of being entangled in the sentences for a major drug conspiracy where the main conspirators may face very long sentences indeed.
April 2022 – Not guilty!
Another brilliant result for a client who was acquitted of both s.18 and attempted murder. Thanks go to Daniel Jameson of Garden court chambers instructed by Sandra Riordan of Powell Spencer and Partners, an excellent team!

A brilliant result in Isleworth Crown Court and enormous thanks to Ollie Renton and Alex Monaghan of Crucible Chambers .
Greg Powell acted for a hotel owner and his wife who were accused of being involved with a gang supplying drugs using
a hotel room as their base . As a result of vigorous representations the Crown offered no evidence against the owner on the first day of Trial .
His wife was then acquitted by the unanimous verdict of the Jury after 5 days of trial . A family who had been through the most stressful time of their lives enormously relieved which is what makes the work of a Criminal defence lawyer worthwhile.
