In April 2008 the firm was formed by the merger of two highly successful criminal law practices, Spiro Grech Solicitors and Gooden & Co Solicitors. To form the Grech Gooden Partnership which evolved in to Grech Gooden Solicitors Ltd in November 2012.
The firm specialises in all areas of criminal law from; road traffic offences through to white collar crime and the most serious Crown Court cases.
We also run a successful Crown Court department with the assistance of our in house higher rights advocates.
We also specialise in prison law matters from independent adjudications, to parole board hearings and re-categorisations. The firm is now one of the largest criminal practices in Wales.
There are 3 directors in the company; Angelo Gooden, who is also the practice manager; Derrick Gooden, who leads the Crown Court department and Christian Cormack who has specialist expertise in very high cost cases.
Solicitors within the practice include Spiro Grech a consultant with decades of criminal defence experience and Luis Williamson who trained to be a solicitor through Grech Gooden and currently specialises in Magistrates and Youth Court work.
