We regularly take on criminal appeals throughout Scotland both against conviction and against sentence. We were the first Scottish firm to instruct a criminal appeal in the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.

Some of our most outstanding successes have been in appeals where we have not originally represented the accused.

We believe our track record in Appeals is unrivalled – in 2012 alone we secured 4 High Court appeals.

In one case, we were contacted by a solicitor who was in Glenochil prison serving an 8 year sentence for embezzlement. The grounds of appeal was upheld and both the conviction and sentence were quashed.

High Profile Case

William Mills

We were contacted by William Mills when he was in Shotts prison serving an eight year sentence for an armed robbery that he was adamant he had not committed. We again instructed Senior and Junior Counsel and lodged detailed grounds of appeal. Specifically we asked the Crown to carry out further forensic analysis of a particular production in the case. This analysis confirmed that Mr Mills was not the robber and his conviction and sentence were quashed. Thankfully he had been released on interim liberation shortly after our introduction to the case. He is now pursuing an application for compensation for the time wrongfully spent in custody. He was clearly the victim of a miscarriage of justice. The court agreed that he was clearly the victim of a miscarriage of justice. Outcome: MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE
