Modern advocacy has embraced varied and complex technology.  But at Allan Snelling we understand that science and technology can only reveal admissible evidence if methods are properly employed.  Reliability of evidence is always subject to underlying circumstances.  Allan Snelling LLP regularly retains subject matter experts to advise on technical evidentiary matters such as toxicology, engineering, medicine and genetic analysis.  By leveraging the knowledge of preeminent experts, our Lawyers level the playing field and ensure that courts and tribunals are able to recognize the frailties which often exist in scientific analysis despite its daunting appearance.


Modern prosecutions leverage a vast array of resources in an effort to secure a conviction.  A proper defence requires Lawyers equipped with required resources, experience and skill.  The team at Allan Snelling LLP is up to the task.  We stand ready to help. Call us today.
