In that case, the instruction of a defence expert witness in cell-site data analysis was vital in securing the client’s ultimate acquittal.

“I cannot thank this Firm or Craig Broadley enough for the help and support they have provided. We changed to this law firm after another had misguided and didn't listen to our claim after a brief. From our first appointment we knew we were being listened to and understood. Craig carried out a brilliant case on our behalf and now my son has a good future ahead of him again. I could not fault you or the company and if ever required for any reason, I know who I will be referring and calling upon. Thank you so much.”
“I was designated Craig Broadley for my case. Due to geographical reason with me living In Birmingham this wasn’t a straightforward case. From the minute I spoke to Craig I was felt at ease and could see he was passionate and professional about his work. After many adjournments and complications, Craig today got me the result me and my family wanted. Can’t thank Craig enough, hopefully il never require him again but wouldn’t think twice if needed. A true gent and a credit to Beltrami, Thank you Craig”

Craig was confident and informative and kept me up to date every step of the way until trial. During the 3 day trial Craig represented me with the utmost professionalism you could expect from a company like Beltrami & Co. I will be keeping Craigs number just incase i ever need his expertise in the future.”
“I recently instructed Beltrami & Co in an unusual and complex case. I can’t speak highly enough of Craig Broadley, who inspired confidence from the moment I met him at our first meeting. He explained the legal and Court proceedings in detail, and his research was thorough and detailed. He communicated at all stages of the proceedings and I felt confident and reassured at all times, that he was on top of matters. Craig was diligent and hard working, liaising with Senior Counsel when necessary and I’m delighted to say that a positive outcome was achieved. I’d like to thank Beltrami & Co and in particular, Craig Broadley, for delivering an outstanding, professional, results driven service”
