    ‘I would really recommend Yaser for anyone who is asked to attend a voluntary police interview. When I first contacted him, he was so kind and allowed me over 90 minutes on the phone! Something rare with other solicitors who would not give you their time, especially given you may not use them and it could all be for nothing! I was very anxious about the interview, Yaser reassured me always, never made me feel l was was being silly! I had a long wait for my interview and during that time, he always took my calls and called me back if he had missed the call. His advice was spot on and I was able to have a no further action outcome. A true professional and a gentleman.  I would 110% definitely recommend Yaser!’

    ‘Yasar has been a great help to me in a very stressful situation. As I am only 19 having being called into a police station was overwhelming and he reassured me with his extensive knowledge which made me feel more comfortable going in to the station. He was immediately responsive and was able to talk to me on the phone at anytime whenever I needed reassurance or had a question. He reviewed the minimal evidence the police had and when we spoke he stated his professional opinion that they have no case and I was falsely accused of assault. This reassurance again made me feel more comfortable and eased my stress. He provided me with advice throughout the interview such as interfering when the police officer would as inappropriate questions which I would respond with “no comment.” The case was given to CPS and 6 months later they closed the case so it was quite a wait but I wasn’t stressed out because Yasar’s opinion on the matter made me confident that the case wouldn’t continue to court. If I was on my own it would have been an extremely stressful 6 months flinching whenever my phone rang. 100% recommend!’

On the day of the interview, he asked the officer the right questions and explained my position to me, the laws that applied and how my actions would be interpreted. His presence was reassuring and his knowledge accurate and objective. I gave my interview and the full sequence of events and was not charged.
