I have never been to court before and was nervous about the whole thing but it was explained to me at every stage. All the staff that I dealt with were polite, respectful and non judgmental. The whole team showed compassion and were 100% on my side. They were up front about costs and possible outcomes of my case. And they were spot on. They said what they would try and get and achieved exactly that. I felt totally supported the entire time. Thank you all so much and a special thanks to Ashleigh.

At first it was alleged that I failed to provide a specimen while in charge, then at the Police Station suspected of having driven a vehicle and having been required to provide a specimen. The case was in a way specific unusual sensitive and difficult. I have requested assistance via the internet to a few legal solicitors’ teams, it was on a Saturday. Geoffrey Millers Solicitors replied to me first and within an hour. Although it was an unfortunate incident, I consider myself fortunate to come across Geoffrey Millers Solicitors – top notch among high class professionals. Their expertise, presence, experience was outstanding, from the first call to the last minute. They helped to steer me safely through the turbulent times and as a result I still have my driving licence. Much obliged to everyone involved in my case. Many thanks.

I am writing this to express my sincere thanks to Jeanette, my barrister and Sharif following my recent acquittal of the charge of ‘failing to provide a specimen for analysis’.

Briefly, I was stopped late in the evening over the festive period. I had not drank any alcohol for approximately 7/8 hours, so was surprised when the roadside breath test came back positive.

I was arrested at the scene and taken into custody. I was then taken to the intoxilyzer and despite attempting on almost a dozen attempts to provide a sample, the machine only successfully recorded one. On the basis of this I was charged with the offence of failing to provide a specimen.

Immediately on my return home I looked at the reviews for legal expertise in this field. I was impressed by both the results Geoffrey Miller obtained, but also the candid nature of how they explained their achievements.

I work in a professionally regulated field and the consequences of a conviction would have been career changing – where I worked, my ability to emigrate, the challenges to completing my higher professional training; It almost didn’t bear thinking about.

From the start Jeanette clearly and sympathetically understood my concerns. From the first phone call she suggested immediate steps to secure evidence, direct my case, and gave a broad outline of how she felt the case would proceed.

It was made clear to me that the costs would be significant, that more than one hearing may be necessary, and success would require patience and hard work.

Ultimately three expert witnesses were involved in my case. They were invaluable to my defence and I had confidence in them throughout. It is to the credit of Sharif and my barrister that they were not ultimately required.

I will not divulge too much regarding the court day to preserve some dignity for the prosecution team. Suffice to say, at points the district judge looked frankly incredulous, and I overheard the prosecution advocate asking my barrister’s advice on one of his own subsequent cases.

At the end of first witness giving evidence, I heard the prosecution advocate opine along the lines of ‘I can’t see this going much further’. The case was then thrown out. It ultimately felt like being involved in a legal tutorial rather than an adversarial contest. I will say no more other than my barrister is clearly a man fulfilling his life’s vocation.

I must offer my most sincere thanks to Sharif. He was simply wonderful throughout the many months it took to bring the matter to court. He always returned my calls, went over areas of concern or confusion as many times as necessary, and explained legal elements to me in a way I readily understood.

He was also excellent at understanding the consequences of ‘double jeopardy’ of the legal and professional aspects of disclosure of evidence. I cannot thank him enough; he was superb and I hope his career progresses as it deserves to.

One final piece of advice. This should be new territory for anyone unfortunate enough to be involved in these circumstances. Be patient, listen to the team’s advice and I am confident a similar result will occur for you.

An outstanding firm , an outstanding team.
Kept me informed at every step, could not ask for more. I was charged with failed to provide back July 2017. I was going to plead guilty and hoped to have some sort of discount on my punishment. I deeply thought at the time, my life is over. I ruined it. Looking everywhere to find a solicitor to represent me and plead guilty, some friends even suggested to me that I don’t spend meaningless money, just represent yourself.

Luckily I did not. And I found GM from google search and phoned. They offered me an option of pleading not guilty. It was mind blowing, I never ever thought it was doable. The team especially John gave me a huge support throughout the case. They tailored my defence accordingly and involved two specialists who produced two reports in their areas.

And yes, the case was discontinued 10 mins before I arrive to the court.

I would suggest to everyone who is struggling with a similar charge just to contact GM. You will not regret it. It’s a team with compassion and care, they are able to offer you hope.

Very well done. John and your colleagues.

I cannot find the words to truly express my gratitude to this Law Firm, if you have any doubt remove it from your mind and instruct this company as soon as possible.

Jeanette Miller (Miss Justice) was my first point of contact once released from the police station, and put my mind at ease immediately. She is true professional and gives realistic expectations of what to expect. I was charged with Failing to Provide A Specimen without a reasonable excuse and we went through our options.

I felt immediate confidence that the prospects of an acquittal were high and I instructed the firm. I was then put in the incredibly capable hands of John Ruane who has all the time in the world for his clients, always returns calls and never leaves you in the dark.

I then put the case out of my mind as I was due to get married abroad, and go on holiday for a month.
Upon my return the reality began to hit home that the possibility of loosing my licence, my business and income was real. I began to sink into a spiral of depression, anxiety. Never once was I ignored or made to feel like I was an annoyance to them, repeatedly phoning and asking the same questions.

Some concerning CCTV footage came to light and that was when I totally lost faith in my case, but I must STRESS I never once lost faith in the firm, I mean how can you when you look at the statistics.

My initial hearing was handled by a confident and sharp barrister by the name of Christabel McCooey. It was an effortless experience where I pleaded not guilty and she outlined the issues of my case.

I was then bailed and was required to attend trail in march.

I arrived, but due to my spiral into depression and anxiety the Legal Medical Psychiatrist Dr Saal Seneviratne declared me unfit for trail. My Genius Barrister was in agreement that I wasn’t fit and the case was adjourned for four months while I was treated for my symptoms. I was so close to pleading guilty just to make it go away, but my barrister strongly advised against it as he was confident in my chances of an Acquittal.

Between trails arrangements were made for me to have telephone conference with my barrister, Miss Justice and John Ruane. This is incredibly helpful if you suffer from anxiety and need to be reassured.

Well guess what, within a few hours of being in court on July 3rd my barrister put such a dent in the prosecutions case that he made a half time submission of No Case To Answer. He was polite, professional, persistent and incredibly well prepared. The prosecutor on the other hand was not. I am in awe of his skills in the court room and cannot thank him and John Ruane enough for making sure I saw the case to the end, because the end resulted in an Acquittal.

My life can now go on, I feel like I can breath again!

Do not hesitate to instruct this firm, you get what you pay for and I am eternally grateful.

I believed my case was a ‘no hoper’, until I carried out some online research and came across the Geoffrey Miller Solicitors web site and read some of their case results and outcomes. I was being charged with: failing to provide a specimen, and from my career background suspected the procedure at the Police station had not been followed correctly but had resigned myself to being found guilty which would have a devastating affect on my life and family in many areas.

As a last resort I plucked up the courage to give GMS a ring and spoke with an employee who after hearing my story gave me hope that things might not be as bad as I first thought. They agreed I had made a mistake in the run up of events taking me to the Police station, but that I was not a bad person, was paying for my mistake and that if there was a possibility that procedures had not been followed correctly at the Police station then I would not be found guilty of failing to provide a specimen.

It has been a hard nine months for me (to say the least), and I do not ever want to have to experience this again, but if it was not for the GMS team who in the end won my case I would not like to say where I would be now. They are professional, thorough, emphatic, supportive and I would recommend them to any unfortunate who winds up with an offence the way I did.

I had a car accident and was really worried as the witnesses had made some unbelievable assumptions and I was charged for those offences. I lost my car and it looked like I was going to lose my driving licence too. I found Geoffrey Miller Solicitors online, I spoke to Miss Justice and she was very reassuring, after a meeting with her I decided to instruct this firm to represent my case, she was my only hope at the time. From the very start to the end they were positive, professional and thorough. The caseworkers knew the full details of my case and it never felt that I was on my own, I knew that I had a very competent legal team behind me. The case a took bit longer than expected which made me anxious but the outcome was the best outcome possible. The barrister that represented me on the day of trial was the best anyone can get, he is simply the best in the country. Thank you to Team at Geoffrey Miller Solicitors, I have still got my drivers licence which means I can carry on with my job and support my family. Money well spent!

This is the email we received from the client!

Dear John,
Thank you all once again for your professional conduct,exacting standards, and of course, brilliant end result. You have always been most efficient,clear in your objectives. Equally with their explanation and the reasons are always well considered and logical (although the law is not always Rational).

As for your appointments of professionals capable of conducting the proceedings. Therein lies the master stroke. Sal is simply charming and lovely company, a true gentleman (perhaps his expertise was not fully required in this instance, but necessary if it was).

Now my barrister, I think a consummate genius of the Law. An absolute pleasure to observe someone so gifted and at ease with proceedings born as a result of his knowledge of the law. It is interesting to observe the difference between my council and the crown prosecution. Needless to say, the young prosecuting barrister, fell over her words, was vague and also incorrect (her reference was a filofax and a mobile phone).

However, my barrister brought a library of law books. From which he told the court what the law was, with 2 sometimes 3 examples of each relevant factor. All done eloquently, respectfully, but emphatically. From this position he directs the court. I found his presence, method and breathtaking intellectual rigour, simply spellbinding.

I’m sorry if i omitted anyone, although a most difficult time for me, you have all made the experience as painless as possible, and the outcome proves just how dedicated you have all been.

Thank you so much John.
