Case won - Thank you


I instructed MAJ Law to defend my case. They were friendly and professional. My solicitor was Conor and he knows everything worth knowing about motoring law. They won my case after finding mistakes with the evidence against me.

I was given a costs order, meaning I get some money back.

Would highly recommend. A***

Case Dropped Before First Hearing


I found MAJ law and it’s good reviews on Google and was initially skeptical but after reading the reviews and speaking with Conor on the phone a couple of days after I was arrested and he really made me feel much more confident in my defence but I decided to anxiously wait until I recovered my charge letter and court date had been posted. Following my charge sheet arriving at my door I contacted MAJ law and they gave me a clear idea of the different legal routes we could take, they explained the fixed fees upfront and I thought it was reasonably priced so I paid my deposit and waited to hear back.

Admittedly, communication isn’t the best due to the fact it’s hard to find the right person on the phone, I organised multiple callbacks but never heard anything back. Over email I can’t fault them. However, there is clearly a lot of work behind the scenes going on.

On my day of my first hearing (today), I arrived at 9 but my barrister had actually arrived at the wrong magistrates court completely so I had to wait for a couple of hours for him to arrive at the correct place. (I was told their was miscommunication between MAJ law and their Barristers). Despite this, my barrister (Mr. Shazad) was great and explained to me exactly what he was going to do and came back to me after speaking with court officials and managed to get my case dropped just before I was supposed to be going into the courtroom. I did have an unusual case but I guarantee if I had not spent the fixed fee of £1500 + VAT for legal help I would’ve been charged and banned and likely due to my age would struggle to find car insurance for a long time or a decent job for a long time. 2 months of pure hell and constant paranoia lifted off my shoulders has got to be one of the best feelings. I am told I may be able to claim some money back due to the fact CPS offered zero evidence. Without a doubt, worth every penny.

Thanks again to the MAJ LAW team

Hi Jamie. Thank you for taking the time to provide detailed feedback. We'll certainly take on board your comments about our communication, so thank you for being honest! We regularly win what other solicitors call "unwinable" cases, even at first court hearings. The police push cases to court expecting defendants to plead guilty. Often they don't have the correct evidence to prove the case! That appears to be what happened here. I'll pass your gratitude onto the barrister. A fantastic outcome, Jamie. It was a pleasure representing you. - The team at M.A.J Law.

Surpassed all my expectations - Case Dropped


A few months ago I was Approached by the police at the road side stationary in my car and was consequently charged with refusing a specimen of breath while in charge of a vehicle and suspected of driving. This couldn’t have come at a worst time in my life and the consequences couldn’t have been more severe had I been convicted. I was inclined to plead guilty thinking there wasnt any way out as I wouldn’t be believed. However after speaking to Conor at MAJ Law I was given confidence that my case had merit and it wasn’t a done deal in me being convicted. Today (the day of my trial) my case was dropped when the CPS offered no evidence just as Conor said was highly likely. To say this is a relief is an understatement and it has literally saved my life. I cannot thank Conor and the team at MAJ Law enough for everything they have done for me. Like others have written on here it can be concerning how much things can cost when it comes to defending themselves for a case like this and I myself was sceptical about what all the money was for. I can genuinely say however that it is the best money I have spent and ever will spend and it is clear how much goes on behind the scenes to ensure everything is done to win your case and get you the best outcome possible. After winning my case I will now also see some of this money coming back to me from central funds which is just the silver lining in it all. Conor and the team I cannot thank you enough! I would highly recommend MAJ Law and the team to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation. Top Marks

Drink Driving Offence


Thank you MAJ Law for your support. With their expert advise and guidance I managed to avoided a second offence driving ban as the case was discontinued on the day of the trial as i was found not guilty due to lack of evidence. It was a very stressful 9 months and well worth the money I spent for MAJ Law to represent me. Absolute superstars!.

Successfully Defended Twice!


Can't thank MAJ Law enough for representing me on two separate occasions. Excellent knowledge and very resourceful. They managed to successfully defend me on two failure to provide matters since the police failed to recognise a genuine excuse to provide a sample.

They're confidence and knowledge of Road Traffic Law is very re-assuring. Expensive but worth avoiding a driving ban. Professional service throughout, would highly recommend.
