Jones Associates Recently Take on High-Profile Matter Pro Bono
Jones + Associates recently represented a young person in the Supreme Court of Queensland charged with Murdering 15 year old, Angus Beaumont.
After a five day trial sitting before a Judge but without a jury, our client was found guilty of Murder.
The circumstances of the matter and the outcome, that being the death of a young man, were nothing short of tragic. The unfortunate outcome, however regrettable, does not though necessarily mean that the actions of the defendants were unlawful and it was on this basis the trial was conducted.
It was after careful consideration of the evidence and the relevant circumstances that Jones + Associates agreed to take on the as part of their pro bono scheme. We believed the client and the case was deserving of the considerable time and effort it takes to conduct a Supreme Court trial of this nature.
Whilst disappointed with the ultimate result we would like to thank Mr Patrick McCafferty KC, Mr Andrew O’Brien and Ms Lauren Gamble of counsel who all acted pro bono and worked tirelessly to provide our client expert and excellent representation.
Whilst not always popular, we will never shy away from the pursuit of justice and to ensure those before the courts are provided an ability to present their cases fully and expertly.
