The accolade of being Lawyer In The News was overshadowed by the shock of reading the erroneous report that Neil Carr is ‘broken’ by the false accusations.

Nothing could be further from the truth. My talented young client longs to return to the classroom and it is our fervent hope that the acquittal and the positive publicity that has followed the trial will assist him in this regard.

Far from being ‘broken’, Mr Carr who is spirited, intelligent and insightful, has admirably and with astonishing courage and good humour maintained an optimistic and positive mental attitude throughout this traumatic trial, and is elated at this fine result.
