“What struck me most in relation to the view I formed of Mark Trowell as a practitioner and a leader in his field before and after he took Silk was the obvious enthusiasm that he has toward his career and his clients and the caring attitude that he displays in relation to them and their circumstances”.
Frank Castiglione QC
“My professional relationship with Mr. Trowell commenced in 1989 when he was defending numerous offenders in the District and Magistrates Courts. In most cases, I was the charging police officer and given the nature of our adversarial system, Mr. Trowel tested myself and police evidence extremely vigorously. I came to admire his persistence and commitment to obtaining justice for his clients, his court decorum, presentation and his substantial legal knowledge”.
Michael Dean (former President of the WA Police Union)
