Military & Courts Martial
Bob Scott specialises in criminal and military defence law and he is both a solicitor and Higher Rights Advocate. He appears in the Magistrates Court, Crown Court and Courts Martial and is a duty solicitor at the police station and in the Magistrates’ Court.
His previous 33-year career in the Special Investigation Branch of the Royal Military Police and the Army Equal Opportunities Inquiry Team has provided him with substantial qualifications and experience in both areas and has led him to interface with criminal justice systems all over the world, from Northern Ireland to the Falklands. He is very familiar with the demands of service life and the workings of the chain of command.
As a member of the British Academy of Forensic Science, Bob takes a particular interest in the physical evidence associated with criminal cases and is experienced in identifying potential weaknesses in prosecution cases.
In addition to criminal matters, Bob has assisted a range of military clients in submitting Service Complaints and making successful representations in respect of AGAI 67 (or other service equivalent) action taken against them.

Help for Heroes
“I must say Mr Scott done me proud.”
“Your hard work and dedication in those months and weeks ahead of the trial were obvious, and that only became more apparent once we’d ‘gone into bat’. It was clear to me that the two of you are a fantastic partnership and, in my humble opinion, outshone all the other legal teams in the case hands down.”
