"Not a single week goes by but that I am contacted by an accused and his family who complain that the accused has been wrongly convicted. Please accept that this happens every week. Our appeal court practice is the most challenging area of pratice. Once the trial has gone wrong, it is often too late to complain. It is essential therefore that you contact us as soon as you have any doubts about the conduct of your case, either at the stage of preparation or before the trial."
Gary McAteer, Solicitor Advocate
The complaints are invariably:
- A lawyer didn't investigate the case properly
- My lawyer didn't present the case well in court
- You'll never believed what happened at the trial
- I didn't think the police could ever do that
We will take on any appeal if we believe it has merit.
