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
Massively happy with the help of my barrister getting the Court / Judge to understand my case. Thank you [Rachel Murphy] in helping reduce my sentence. Many many thanks, will use you for any future incidents, although I don't intend to live the life of crime. Thank you. Mr P - Manchester
Words can't describe how grateful I am to you [Louise] with all your help in this situation. I don't think it's sunk in yet given how long it has been hanging over us but there's just a massive sense of relief now. I could never have phrased that letter any better and I honestly appreciate everything you did and all the help you have given my mother and I. Thank you so so much for all of your help and how quickly you dealt with it all. Thanks again, will never forget it. Mr M - Cheshire
