A solicitor will always have conduct of your case. We often hear from clients, who transfer their case to us, that they were concerned that a non qualified fee earner was dealing with their case. This is not the case at McKenzies
Your case will always be dealt with by soliictor who has experience in dealing with the type of offence which your are accused of. This will obviously increase the chance of the best possible outcome.
Continuity is key. That's why your case will never be passed from solicitor to solicitor. You will deal with the same person throughtout your case giving you the confidence and service you deserve.
We have a dedicated team to deal with serious offences ranging from Murder and Terrorist matters to large scale drugs offences and multi handed conspiracies.
We also have a dedicated Fraud team who deal with high valued and complex cases. These types of offences are often referred to as "white collar" crime.
Motoring Law can involve complex legislation and have a significant impact on an individual's life if they lose their licence. That's why we have a specialist team, which over the years has led to hundreds of our clients retaining their licence.
For those clients who are being detained in prison, we not only ensure that they are regularly visited by their solicitor but we also have access to our own video link facilities meaning we can arrange meetings at very short notice.
In certain situations we are happy to arrange home visits to see our clients and to continue with the preparation of their case when they are unable to attend our offices for understandable reasons.

My husband was arrested in the middle of the night after the police had come to our house and broken the front door to get in. Me and my children were terrified. The police told us to remain in the front room whilst they searched out house and then took my husband off to the police station. I called McKenzies as I knew they had an emergency service. The solicitor I spoke to contacted the police and went to the station to advise my husband. They kept me informed throughout the night and eventually my husband was released in the early hours of the morning. Without McKenzies I don't know what I would have done. They were fantastic.
In the middle of the night your thinking who can I call at this hour? How am I going to find a solicitor? I searched the internet for local solicitors and found McKenzies. I called the emergency number and the call was answered straight away. I explained the problem and the solicitor took control and dealt with the police station. I was so happy with the solicitor. He was amazing. Thank you again.
Thank you for providing us with a perfect service.
Mr R Davis
I would like to thank Miss Josie Cuffaro for the professionalism with which she represented me in my case. Thank you very much. I would be interested to cooperate with your company in terms of permanent residence and citizenship. Thank you.
An excellent service, very friendly, was always kept informed and the result was better than I expected. I would definitely recommend McKenzies to friends or family.
On the 13th May 2013 I was asked to attend Hertford Court following a speeding offence that could have left me with no driving licence, job and a stressful marriage. I was represented by Mrs Josie Cuffaro from McKenzies. I believe it was the professional approach and aptitude of the way in which Mrs Cuffaro defended me on the day that i still have my driving licence, job and a happy marriage. I would like to personally thank Mrs Cuffaro for saving all of the above, she is a credit to McKenzies Solicitors and if i have any other issues (hopefully not) I would not hesitate to use your representation again. Thank you for everything!
