I have had previous dealings with Dan Weed and had seen how robustly he defends. He was my "go to solicitor". The matter was ruled No Further Action on any matters it was still over a year before this happened. Dan kept in regular contact throughout the investigation and was well briefed for each meeting we had. He is the hardest working lawyer I have met and he cares about the people he represents. I would recommend him to any person or their families who require criminal advocacy. Mr S - Yorkshire
