Gotelee Solicitors LLP delighted to announce promotion

Gotelee Solicitors LLP is delighted to announce the promotion of Matthew Swash to the position of Partner within the firm.

Matthew joined Gotelee in 2020. He has more than 18 years’ experience in representing those who are accused of having committed a criminal offence.  Matthew represents clients at police stations, Magistrates Court, Crown Court and Youth Court.  His experience spans the full range of criminal defence work, from minor driving offences through to complex fraud cases. The criminal law team have been ranked tier one in the Legal 500 – a publication that is recognised globally as a definitive guide to those seeking expert legal advice.

Matthew commented: “I am delighted to have been promoted to the position of Partner at Gotelee. Gotelee has a strong reputation in the region, and is highly regarded for the strength and expertise of its Criminal Law team.  I am excited about the firm’s aims and look forward to playing an integral role in the firm’s future growth.”

Andrew West, Managing Partner at Gotelee, said: “Matthew’s promotion to Partner is very well deserved.  The positive feedback he receives from clients and colleagues recognises that not only is Matthew a highly experienced Criminal Law solicitor, but also a great team player and an asset to the firm.  We’re delighted that he has joined the partnership.”

Client quotes in the Legal 500 reaffirm the promotion:

“Nearly all my dealings were with Matthew Swash. The service he provided was in my opinion exceptional. He was straightforward in his dealings with me so I was fully aware of what was happening and the situation that I was in. The case he prepared on my behalf and presented to the Police was instrumental in helping reach the outcome that we did. His attention to detail and the way he interpreted the information that we gave him was remarkable and really helped highlight to the Police where they should perhaps be concentrating their efforts.”

“I have worked regularly with Matthew Swash for over 10 years. His client care is outstanding. He has a ready empathy, and is meticulous in explaining law and procedure to clients. He works particularly well with his vulnerable clientele, and is perceptive in identifying potential areas in which expert witnesses will be needed to assist the trial process. He is fearlessly robust in protecting his client’s interests in dealing with the police. He is a diligent litigator and a pleasure to work with.”
