"I called the 24 hour helpline at Adams Whyte. The advice given was excellent. The following day I met my lawyer, Gerry Bann. My case was complicated and I've got to say that the way that Gerry and the rest of the team at Adams Whyte handled my case throughout was absolutely tremendous.
The high point for me was the reduced plea Gerry managed to negotiate for me. Also, at my sentence hearing, the way that Gerry presented and argued my case was second to none. Thank you for keeping out of jail."DG, Boness
A founding Partner of Adams Whyte who has specialised in criminal defence since 1992, Gerry brings the highest standards of advocacy and expertise to the many cases he defends.
He is proud to have been selected by the Scottish Government for successive appointments as Board member of two prominent Scottish justice bodies, firstly, the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission, the national body responsible for reviewing alleged miscarriages of justice; and, more recently, Community Justice Scotland, the national organisation responsible for promoting world-leading standards of community justice across Scotland.
A former Dean of the respected Scottish lawyers’ organisation, the Faculty of West Lothian Solicitors, Gerry also has the distinction of having been the lead solicitor in one of the few appeal cases in recent Scottish legal history where the High Court of Appeal was successfully persuaded to overturn a man’s conviction for murder.
