Criminal Defence in a patricide matter establishing the validity of Narcissistic Personality Disorder R v B


B instructed David Phillips and Partners criminal defence solicitors to defend him after killing both his parents.

From an early stage, his criminal lawyers realised that B was no ordinary client. Following extensive research, we established that B’s condition of NPD was a factor, and sought expert evidence to support this.

This case attracted worldwide publicity, so the pressure to secure a murder conviction for the Crown was huge.

However, due to the work B’s criminal defence solicitors did, they accepted the principle of NPD and B’s murder charge was rightly reduced to manslaughter.

Since the conviction television programmes have been made in which Paul Lewis, criminal defence solicitor and partner at David Phillips and Partners has appeared.
