He appears in the criminal courts most days representing people charged with a range of offences from Breach of the Peace to Murder.  Gerry has extensive knowledge of dealing with people who have been accused of offences and people who have been convicted as well as witnesses and victims. As a consequence he has detailed knowledge of all aspects of sentencing and the treatment of offenders.

He was part of the Management Team that was tasked with setting up the Glasgow Drug Court and represented the first person to appear in that court.
