Another great result for Greg Powell. Client acquitted of murder at Bristol Crown Court on the 11 December 2019. Thanks are due to Peter Wilcock QC and Emma Fenn of Garden Court Chambers for their excellent work. Greg’s record of success in murder cases is probably second to none as a solicitor with over a dozen acquittals.

We have represented a number of crew members at Uxbridge Magistrates Court who have been referred by their union. In our latest case the cabin crew member was more than 5 times over the prescribed limit.
