Excellent Sentencing Success for Danny Barnard’s Client

Danny Barnard (who is one of our superb in-house advocates) secured an excellent result for his client at the Central Criminal Court.

Our client had stolen £30,000 of Tiffany jewellery from an unlocked van in Hatton Garden. He had previous convictions for dishonesty, but pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity and as a result of Danny’s keen advocacy skills he was able to persuade the Sentencing Judge to initially defer the sentence and then to impose a two year community penalty.

Our client was delighted.

Yet another Acquittal for Lewis Nedas & Co!

Siobhain Egan acted for a man who was one of three defendants facing trial at Ipswich Crown Court concerning commercial cultivation of cannabis on a very large-scale cannabis farm in Suffolk. Our client raised duress, stating that he had been coerced to become involved because of serious threats to his safety.

The brilliant Übermeister tactician Barry Gilbert of 2 Bedford Row was trial counsel.

Another Motoring Law Success for Lewis Nedas & Co

Nick Wragg acted for and represented in court a woman who had a serious accident and crashed her car into a lamp post. Police arriving at the scene, believed from her demeanour (allegedly) that she has been driving under the influence of drugs and charged her accordingly. Blood tests indicated that she had low levels of a prescribed medication, and it seems that she had been using this medication for many years. Our client maintained that she had been knocked unconscious by the accident, which explained her reactions when Police found her. As a result of Nick’s diligent and thorough preparation, we were able to serve an expert medical report which concluded that the medication that she had been prescribed would have no effect on her driving ability.

The CPS did not respond to the service of the expert report and failed to comply with CPRS. As a result, they discontinued the prosecution in court. Our client was delighted that justice was achieved for her.

Another Confiscation Success for Layna Thompson

Layna Thompson represented an individual whose overall benefit figure was reduced by £400,000.00.

The Crown’s application appeared to be a hypothetical calculation of drugs that he may or may not have had in the future, based on a quantity of cutting agent. They also made another hypothetical, highly inflated estimate of our client’s living expenses.

This was an excellent example of Layna’s thorough and tenacious approach.
