We were worried about the cost of it all, however the office staff sorted my legal aid application and so I didn't have to pay any money. The Criminal Lawyers did a great job on my case.
The way the Police dealt with me was shocking. The Police didn't want to listen to my side of the story and the fact that I was the one that was attacked. The Lawyers put my side of the story forward brilliantly and got me a not guilty.
I've been happy with the services provided by Berlow Criminal Lawyers. It was very reassuring to be able to get hold of him on the phone, for free, even into the early hours.
Matthew was excellent in court, when we needed him most he performed.
