Position

Over the last year, Rhodri has acted in the following trials; attempted murder, advanced fee fraud, rape, a VAT fraud and GBH with intent. The client has been acquitted on each occasion.

In the VAT fraud, heard at Woolwich Crown, after a trial lasting eight weeks, Rhodri’s client was unanimously acquitted. It was the first time that he had acted as leading junior. In a note written to Rhodri after the trial, the trial judge said the following: “In the best tradition of the Bar you put up a sterling flight for your client and deserved the result”. 

After the GBH with intent trial, heard at Snaresbrook Crown, following the client’s unanimous acquittal, his (experienced) solicitor, who had been present through much of the case, described the result as unbelievable and one of the best of his career. In an ensuing email to Rhodri, he added: “Thank you again for your work on this, it was an incredible result and it came from your advocacy”

In the coming months, Rhodri will defend in two huge cases. A “copy-cat website” fraud in Teesside Crown and a conspiracy to rob at The Bailey.
