Peter Malone BA (Hons)

Peter Malone - Solicitor-Advocate, AssociateSolicitor-Advocate, Associate 
Admitted to the role of Solicitors 02/10/2006

In May 2012 Peter Malone joined Mortons Solicitors from a firm in Cheshire.  Although Peter holds Higher Rights of Audience in the Criminal & Civil Courts, he almost exclusively appears at the Crown Courts representing clients for the most serious & heinous allegations.

Furthermore he is a Magistrates Court and Police Station Duty Solicitor and handles the minor offences with the same level of enthusiasm for which he is acclaimed to handle the more serious ones.

Peter has been representing clients for complex frauds, aggravated burglariesserious/grievous assaults, robberies and numerous clients appearing for breaches of court orders.  Other notable cases include mobile phone disguised stun guns.

In the Crown Court 2015 has already been an extremely busy year for Peter where he has dealt with significant numbers of 'cannabis farm' cases where clients are charged with either production/cultivation of cannabis or permitting the cultivation of cannabis.  His skill in these cases has been shown in that he has been able to persuade the prosecution and the Court (where backed up by instructed drugs experts)

- to accept his clients mitigation that the plants were for personal use
- where clients have been under duress to permit/allow the cannabis to be grown
- to significantly reduce the yield/valuation of the cannabis
- to depart from the usual sentencing guidelines of custodial/prison sentences

Peter has also made several appearances at the Criminal The Court of Appeal, which sits in London at the Royal Courts of Justice in connection appeals against manifestly excessive sentences.
