A very professional and prompt service.... Amazing guys I can't thank them enough especially Urfan Mahmood who was always available to answer any questions and put the case together very quick. The team at Shafi Law will not rest until your case is over. I was sent to crown court for my case but these guys were so awesome and got me out of the case before the trial even started. Most solicitors firms don't want to know you once you have given them the case and they know you can't change representation but i was impressed with the hard work these guys put in. I recommend them 100%

I was falsely accused of a crime. These guys helped get it resolved quickly and provided me with not only professional legal support, but also gave me the feeling that I had people watching my back when I felt like the world was against me. If you are looking for a hard working, professional and reliable legal team, you need to hire these guys. Got their number saved in my phone just in case I ever need them again.

Great communication, highly professional Criminal Law Specialists you will be well catered for. Are you still reading? What don't you give them a call now? (Thanks ever so much Shafi Solicitors LLP) I left a review because I'm happy with the service I received from them. Even though they are solicitors, this is an unsolicited review. I just had to mention it because I can rely on them in court.
