I accept referrals from other firms of solicitors to deal with their client’s police misconduct claims. You can read examples of the sort of cases I deal with in the Case Reports section of this website.
From a solicitor’s point of view, police misconduct cases are often difficult and involved. Also, given the decline in legal aid public funding, clients are often unable to pursue cases unless the solicitor is prepared to take them on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, so the solicitor is at financial risk.
As a result, I am often approached by other firms of solicitors to deal with their clients’ claims against the police.
I guarantee in writing that I will not ‘poach’ their clients.
This way the referring solicitor has nothing to lose, and a happy client who will remember the good turn in the future.
If you are a solicitor interested in referring your client to me please get in touch via the online form on this page or my firm’s website (click on the link).
