Richard Barton, instructed by Sarah Smith of Tildens Solicitors, successfully argued that his client should not be tried on a serious drugs allegation due to the lack of proper evidence.

?Sean Gould, Senior Clerk, says, ‘Sarah instructed Richard early in this case after the client specifically requested him.  He dealt with all hearings in the Crown Court, including attending in person for this crucial dismissal application.  He prepared a detailed written Skeleton Argument, which the Prosecution, despite their best efforts in court, were unable to answer.

It is an example of how Westgate can offer a comprehensive and very effective service to our lay and professional clients’.
