  • If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

  • Who cares?

    So DUI is not good, sure - we all know that. But lead story on what is supposed to be an informative legal website? Come on guys...leave this one for Ming Pao and don't insult your own intelligence and well established reputation for quality legal journalism. I would suggest that this one be archived now!

  • @ Arun | 16-Mar-2012 11:46 am - It's a 'personal matter' which we should all show huge understanding and sympathy for if it's someone at the the top, and instant dismissal and a likely career change for anyone else. Even in the case of a serious criminal offence.

    Despicable.

  • I hope that those people whose comments are effectively trying to talk this despicable crime down as a "personal matter" are from CC PR department and are not qualified solicitors. If you are and that is your standard, you are clearly not fit to be practsing, particularly in today's regulatory climate.

  • See if you can spot the CC spin doctors in this comments thread. If he was an associate he would be soon gone for bringing the firm into disrepute, but because he is a top guy it is a personal matter and we should feel sorry for him. I imagine CC paid for the booze that nearly killed a poor taxi driver

  • If he had killed someone in the accident, would it still be a personal matter?
    A car my daughter was in was hit by a drunk driver. She survived just fine, one of her friends was killed. The story did hit a personal chord.

  • Charlton's predicament would be enough to turn most men to drink.
    A Clifford Chance partner would never show such poor judgment however, such weakness of character is a trait found only in the peasants.
