He has dealt with a full range of serious criminal cases including gangland murders and multi million pound drug importations together with carrying out successful Court’s Martial appearances on behalf of service personnel throughout Europe.

Gwyn’s expertise had led to him being instructed by a number of professional footballers and celebrities and resulted in vast press coverage and in him being dubbed “Merlin the Magician” for his apparent ability to make a number of cases disappear

Gwyn highlighted to students the legalities surrounding driving convictions and the associated life changing consequences that can result from the temptation of reaching for a mobile phone, or finding yourself at the drink driving limit whilst behind the wheel of a car.

Through Gwyn’s professional experiences, he was able to bring into reality just how dangerous a car can really be!
