Preparation is the cornerstone of any criminal defence. William’s in depth assessment and experience in criminal cases, coupled with his detailed knowledge of police procedures and practices, has often proved decisive in the presentation and outcome of a client’s case.

In several cases over the past year, clients have seen their prosecutions dropped or discontinued before trial on written submissions to the Crown Prosecution Service, for example;

  • Racially Aggravated Assault
  • Possession with Intent to Supply Drugs
  • Driving Without Insurance
  • Drunk Driving
  • POCA Cash Seizures
  • Handling Stolen Property
  • Assault on Police

Above are  a selection successes made possible by the level of preparation and scrutiny only possible under private funding, they do not include the successful acquittals following trials in the Magistrates or Crown Court (of which there are an abundance).

Controlling Prostitution / People Trafficking / False Imprisonment – Crown / Metropolitan Police v Mr & Mrs H at Southwark Crown Court.

"Thank you so much for your help and guidance over the past 18 months, this has been a very stressful and upsetting period of our lives. Your specialist knowledge and contacts with agencies in the US and Thailand made all the difference, without the evidence you found things could have turned out very differently."

"Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. Defo recommend you to everyone."

Manslaughter, Production of Class B Drugs, Distribution of Class B Drugs Crown / Thames Valley Police v Ms LH at the Old Bailey

"Mr Morrison, I would like to thank you for all your help and support from the time of my arrest to my trial almost 2 years later. I especially appreciated your presence and advice during the numerous stressful interviews at the police station."
