A successful result for senior barrister Philip Bown

Due to the skill and tenacity of Philip Bown, a senior barrister with Cartwright King, a life sentence wrongly imposed on one of our clients some 13 years ago was brought before the Court of Appeal.

The Court of Appeal agreed with Philip’s submissions that it should never have been imposed. It was replaced with a Hospital Order more suited to the client's difficult personal circumstances. As we only came into the case many years after the event, this result reflects on the firm's determination to fight tooth and nail for vulnerable members of society who, without legal aid, would be left to the worst excesses of the State.
