We know how good we are and clients who been represented by us are happy to testify to that; however the vast majority of our new enquiries are from individuals with no previous convictions and no previous experience of the criminal justice system or criminal solicitors. If you fall into that category you will be understandably very cautious as to who to trust with your case and we anticipate that we will be one of many firms telephoned.
So why should you trust us?
Firstly can we be absolutely clear we encourage you to shop around! Instructing a solicitor in a serious criminal case is an incredibly important decision due to the catastrophic consequences if things go wrong including a criminal record, loss of reputation and even possibly loss of liberty!
As such can we suggest that you to quiz the person you speak with as to their experience, recent results and most importantly how many clients have complained or been unhappy with the level of client care and representation over the past few years?
You may also wish to ask at the very least the following additional questions:
- Can they promise that only specialist sexual offence solicitors with at least 19 years post qualification experience will be overseeing your case?
- Can they promise that you will never be advised or represented by inexperienced or unqualified individuals ’?
- Can they promise that you can speak with the senior partner or principle solicitor 24 hours a day 7 days a week?
- Can they promise that if you appear at court the lawyer representing you will not be juggling your case with numerous other clients or even acting as the court duty solicitor while representing you?
At McMillans Solicitors we answer an emphatic YES to all of the above; however many other so-called specialist criminal solicitors would be forced to admit the exact opposite!
We understand that you will probably still be cautious as to whether to trust us with you case. We know we are the best but you have not had the opportunity to work with us or see us in action at court or at the police station which is why we are the only firm to offer a complete no quibble money back promise up to and including your first police station appearance or (where we have not represented you at the police station) up to and including your first plea hearing at the magistrate’s court. (stc).
This enables you to work with us, attend our office on numerous occasions and see us dealing with police officers and / or representing you at court. This should leave you in no doubt how we go about our business. If you are then not 100% confident we are the right firm for you we will refund the total fixed fee in full. No argument, no debate just a full unequivocal refund.
We have yet to have a client take us up on this offer!
Please feel free to call us 24 hours a day 7 days a week for a free no obligation chat about your case.
