Being falsely accused of rape can leave you feeling as though you life has changed forever. Feeling depressed, anxious and worried about what others will think can be very difficult to handle and can take a toll on family relationships. The word ‘rape’ has a stigma attached and those accused will be concerned about being exonerated as quickly as possible.
People who have built their career and income on their name will be even more under pressure. They may experience loss of appetite and their life will not have the same level of enjoyment as before. They will feel shocked at being accused of a sexual crime, something they didn’t do.
This article should provide you with guidance and support on what you should do next to handle false rape accusations. If you cannot find an answer to the question you have about false rape accusations, contact us for more information. We can advise you on what to expect and what is required to get the best outcome in a case of this nature.
Are you the victim of False Rape Accusations?
If you are the victim of false rape accusations, please remember that it is not for you to prove your innocence. The prosecution are required to prove that you had non-consensual sex.
To help them prove this, the police will barrage through your personal life without regard to dignity and basic human rights of privacy. The impact of false rape accusations is immeasurable in view of the wide-ranging implications.
There are also situations where somebody will make false rape accusations in an attempt to secure financial gain from you or from the criminal injuries compensation fund.
The best way to protect yourself is to engage a competent lawyer experienced in the field of false rape accusations. This lawyer should also be eager and motivated to win their cases.
What happens in a False Rape Accusations investigation?
Unfortunately, many people accused of committing a crime opt not to take a solicitor with them to the police station interview. They don’t want to look like they feeling uncomfortable or awkward when they aren’t guilty of the crime and have nothing to hide.
The trouble with not taking a solicitor to the police interview is that police officers have specialist training in eliciting confessions and creating inconsistencies in your responses, so to make you look like an untruthful person. This evidence will be presented to the jury in the crown court in order to create the image that you cannot be believed over what the accuser is saying. In the absence of a lawyer, police officers don’t always operate in a fair and transparent manner thus it is crucial that you are supported by someone who knows the law and can defend you against the police strategies and tactics.
The police work hard to outmanoeuvre anyone they interview. Their role is to get a conviction and they certainly aren’t always seeking the truth of what occurred but rather, looking for evidence to prove your guilt.
What happens in a police interview?
As part of an investigation into false rape accusations, there will be a police interview. This will be under caution and held at a police station. This interview will be recorded and potentially used against you as evidence to gain a conviction.
In some cases, people fall into the trap of believing that engaging a solicitor to attend the police interview means that you’re guilty. This is not the case, and the police know that you should have a solicitor to accompany you to any police interview. However, they may try to tell you that you don’t need one. Don’t be fooled.
Being falsely accused of rape can have serious penalties if you’re found to be guilty. It’s vital that a defence strategy is crafted from the very beginning.
Which questions should you answer in a police interview?
Something else to note that, despite what you may believe, it is not always going to be in your best interests to answer questions during a police interview. The police are known for not disclosing all information so that they can catch out their suspect. If the situation is such that the officers are fully open and transparent, then, of course, answering the questions may not be damaging to your case. However, what the police are doing may not be clear to you unless you have experience of cases such as these.
Quite often the best approach to take is to make a statement that is limited but communicates the defence’s position. Once you get caught up in the mind games and traps, it could put you into a difficult situation.
Engaging the help of an experienced rape solicitor will give you the guidance that you need. This guidance may include the recommendation that you do not give an account at interview, at least not before all the forensic results have been seen.
The Sexual Offences Act 2003 covers rape in section 1. It’s a crime that can be committed by either a man on a woman or another man. It comprises oral, vaginal or anal intercourse, which is non-consensual.
For a person to be held guilty, he must be aware that the other person did not consent. In court, the jury will consider whether there were any steps taken to confirm whether the other person agreed. Although this may seem rather odd, sexual communication is more about action than words, and verbally asking for consent is a rare occurrence.
If the other person does not object actively, they may still be classified as not having consented. It’s not required by law to put up either a verbal or physical fight. There does not have to be violence involved for it to be rape. The Jury will consider the entire situation and whether there was an agreement.
If violence was involved, either applied or threatening, then it will be assumed that the sex was not consensual. This is also the case if a person pretends to be a person that the victim usually has sex with, such as their husband.
How Can Stuart Miller Solicitors Help?
Our expert rape solicitors have defended those facing false rape accusations for more than 35 years. We provide advice and representation in false rape cases almost daily. Proud of our tenacity, our energetic and proactive approach to defending these allegations, we have achieved countless successes in false rape allegations.
Trials that are the outcome of false rape accusations are always heard in a crown court. To support us in representing you in the best possible way, we work alongside the best barristers in the country so that you have the best defence strategy. If we need defence experts to review forensic evidence, we access them. This may include psychologists, psychiatrists, DNA experts, IT data or mobile phone evidence specialists.
Every complaint will be cross-examined and your case put in such a way that it will positively influence the jury, and does not alienate them in any way.
What the prosecution must prove
To prove you have committed a crime, the prosecution will have to show that:
You have penetrated the victims private part and / or mouth; and
The victim did not give consent for this act to be carried out
In proving their case, the prosecution will serve the evidence they wish to rely upon at trial. Our rape lawyers will carefully study this evidence, will identify material which is not legally permissible in court, will contest unlawfully obtained evidence and most notably, will challenge the credibility of any witnesses giving testimony.
We will work with you to understand the circumstances surrounding the allegations and compare your truthful version of events against that documented in the prosecution evidence. We will pull out anomalies and undertake investigation work to find any third party evidence to support your defence.
Whether we go door-to-door looking for witnesses, extract CCTV footage from the venue at which you met or interview others with circumstantial knowledge; our rape solicitors will do whatever needs to be done to win your case.
Can you go to prison for a conviction of false rape accusations?
If you were to be found guilty of rape, the maximum sentence is life imprisonment. However, the judge will look at all information and circumstances. It’s vital that you get a good defence lawyer to work on your defence with you. In the event that you are convicted, your solicitor will do anything their power to present convincing and compelling mitigation on your behalf and convince the judge to impose the most lenient sentence allowed by law.
The issue of consent is a vital key to the case and is often the most tenuous part of a false rape accusation. The turn of events is extremely important and we will work with you to understand the sequence. If there were others around you, if you exchanged numbers, if you were already known to each other, if you swapped social media sites, where you had sex and how many times, whether you were drunk or had taken drugs etc. are all crucial points for us to study. Whilst doing so, we will also prepare you for the day you are called into the witness box and asked to give evidence yourself as this is a point at which quite often, cases make or break.

I was recommended to speak to selina. I called her out of office hours to assist with a arrest.She was extremely helpful, considerate and knowledgeable regarding the incident. I could see that she had mine and my families best interests at heart as a criminal defence paralegal. I would definitely recommend her for anyone that finds themselves in a sticky situation.
I would like to thank everyone, especially Salina who handled my case so professionally. She was always in the office, when I needed to speak with her, always approachable and always giving me sound advice, even the lady in reception was very honest and professional, everyone at Stuart Miller solicitor's take a bow, i will always remember you all and the result you got me, a big fat not Guilty, God bless
Kate Blackmore was in charge of my case, she was fully professional, made me feel at ease, kept me fully informed at all times and would always respond in a timely manner, Kate always address all of my questions and worries very thoroughly. Definitely recommend
Stuart Miller helped me navigate through the legal process for the first time, providing excellent guidance throughout the entirety of such a stressful period. I would like to thank Selina Guler for her wonderful work in preparing my defence, as well as Joe Barlow, who were exceptionally helpful throughout the process, explaining everything that arose in detail so as to ensure I could make informed decisions throughout. My experience felt personalised, and gave me the reassurances I needed to calm my nerves, in comparison to the regular ignorant demeanour that typically comes hand in hand with law firms. I felt supported and in safe hands from my initial enquiry right through to the end.
Stuart Miller are extremely professional and efficient. They were super supportive and reliable during a very difficult time. Thank you Majad and Andreas for your caring and reassuring and for always being reachable!Can’t thank you enough and wish you all the best
I recently had the pleasure of having Reem Khatib act for me under quite stressful circumstances. Whilst my case was of a less serious nature in comparison to her normal caseload Reems professionalism and guidance helped me navigate through a difficult patch with relative ease with a perfect result in the end. Thank you Reem for all your help. Gladly recommend you, hopefully I won't need your services again though.
I would highly recommend this firm of solicitors who went over and above with the care and dedication you would not generally expect from a corporate firm. Kibla, Anna and Jilal were a huge support and very efficient in securing the best outcome in the cases they were dealing with. If you want a firm of solicitors that really does have the personal touch and understands their clients then please use the above at Stuart Miller. The Barrister used by Stuart Miller , Lucy , was also excellent and helped us through a stressful time. Thank you all.
Stuart Miller Solicitors were more than what I could have asked for whilst I was navigating my case! They give me regular check in calls to update me about my case and were also incredibly supportive throughout the process. Experiencing going to court, especially when it is a foreign & new concept to you can be extremely daunting and even traumatic - but thanks to both Andreas and Hamza the process was made as straightforward as possible. They put my case forward to a brilliant barrister who also made the process (and final result) amazing. Many thanks once again!
I gotta give my props to Selina for the way she has been handling my situation, she knows what she’s doing/talking about straight forward girl, easy to communicate with. I gotta say thank you to her and keep shining

Extremely happy with the service. Contacted company just after midnight on the out-of-hours number in connection with criminal charges to be heard in court later that same morning. All the formalities were professionally and expertly orchestrated and completed by Selina Guler, laying the foundations for a very favourable outcome at the hearing. I will be forever grateful to Selina for all her help throughout the process.

I HAD TO SPLIT THE REVIEW IN 2 PARTS BECAUSE IT IS SO LONGPART 2The counsel (the Barrister) they sought for my father was outstanding! Sam Robinson from Garden Court. He liaised so much with my father before trial (not common to my understanding, as counsel usually meet clients on the day of court), to ensure he really knew who my father was and the events surrounding my father’s situation. He really got to meet and understand who my father was, to really empathise with my father and the unfortunate situation my father was in. Unfortunately, Sam R was not able to represent my father at trial, and it was as an absolute shame because I knew how comfortable and confident my father was, with Sam R. No responsibility lies with anyone, but due to unforeseen circumstances Sam R was not able to represent my father. However, M Zeb and Anna S put so much effort in trying to postpone the trial, even till the trial date but the trial had to start. There was a replacement for Counsel, however, I cannot even be grateful enough to Judge QC K Montgomery, the judge on the trial, for how much she ensured the trial was as fair as possible at all times.The sentencing was set for another day in Birmingham, on this initial date, Sam R was not available, so M Zeb and Anna S made sure this was re-arranged and successfully it was. the date has been re-scheduled, which meant Sentencing would take place in Stafford combined Court. We all made the joint effort of commuting for this, to ensure my father still got Sam R to represent him and my word, was he amazing and his submissions to the judge were to the point. The result we got was by far the best considering the circumstances. I can say, I am happy I went with Stuart Miller Solicitors, I have recommended them on numerous occasions to others since. I cannot be thankful enough to Mohammed Zeb, an amazing and down to earth human being and Anna Sidgwick for her immense support and assistance with everything. Hats off to these guys! 😊
I HAD TO SPLIT THE REVIEW IN 2 PARTS BECAUSE IT WAS SO LONGPART 1I will be honest; I never heard of Stuart Miller Solicitors, but when my father needed legal assistance, that very name popped up, and all I heard was good reviews. I have never been in a situation where I have needed to seek legal advice and representation and very quick too, but I can say it was a decision I did not regret at all, asking Stuart Miller Solicitors to help my father. We are based in Birmingham and Stuart Miller Solicitors being based in London, and in times of Covid, I cannot credit the effort from the Director Mohammed Zeb and Anna Sidgwick to ensure it felt like they were not so far away from us, but local to us in our city. My father was not in the bests of himself to seek information on who to represent him, so I did this for him as his next of kin, and for his bests interest. Mohammed Zeb was referred to me through family, friends and professionals. Surprisingly as a Director, which I know how busy they can be, I was able to speak to him at first hand and it was the re-assurance and professionalism I received, that I knew I was in great hands. M Zeb informed me of the legal procedures and advised me accordingly to my father’s situation every step of the way from arrest through to sentencing. My father gave permission for me to act as his representative to liaise with his Legal Team – M Zeb and Anna Sidgwick, and both of them and their professionalism was outstanding.When my father was in custody, M Zeb ensured my father’s health and well-being was taken care of. M Zeb liaised with me after he saw my father and informed of the steps they would be taking from there onwards. Considering the event was around New Years, M Zeb made sure my father was able to attend the Magistrates Court on New Years Day so my father could settle in on remand instead of being unstable in custody. Any time or day, I picked up my phone to call M Zeb, he answered and was re-assuring in the circumstances, I cannot credit this man enough. Due to how busy M Zeb was, Anna S took over from the case, but M Zeb ensured he was overlooking on the case every step of the way and I can assure you; he did that exactly. Anna S was amazing in her help and support too. I could contact her whenever and she was always there to help. Any questions I had, whether they seemed silly to me, I still asked and both, M Zeb and Anna S made sure I got the right information to understand what my question was. Any information or update either of us knew of, we all informed each straight away, the communication between us was brilliant. I admire how they made my case such a priority, like it was the only one they were dealing but in reality, they were dealing with many more, the ability to ensure your clients’ needs are met at all times, is a skill in itself and I credit both M Zeb and Anna S for this because they went above and beyond, which I appreciated now and still do! Both M Zeb and Anna S tried so much, in terms of communicating with the prison, to see my father while on remand and in times of Covid, through video links and on numerous occasions in person. This suited my father best, for his comfort and ease, seeing and dealing with people face to face, and where they M. Zeb and Anna S could, they managed to do just that.
I would like to thank Kate Blackmore for all her hard work preparing my defence for me in court. She was extremely efficient and kept me informed at every stage, giving me advice and explaining everything to me. She genuinely made me feel she was completely focussed on my case which I found very reassuring. Dealing with them was a friendly experience without the traditional stuffiness normally associated with law companies. The Counsel (Charlotte) appointed by Stuart Miller to represent me in court was absolutely brilliant and knew exactly how to handle things. All in all, they got the right result for me and I am very grateful to them. Money well spent!
Very good experience with Stuart Miller solicitors , very professional and great at what they do especially Barrister Mr. Zaid and solicitor Mr. Andreas . Dealt with the case great and professionally showed there one of the best in at what they do.
I've dealt with solicitors many times in my life but this time it was personal: I needed help to defend my son in court and we found Stuart Miller. They have been fantastic, from collecting references, advising my son on every aspect, explaining everything in detail to avoid shocks, to providing us with a barrister who was red hot. It took a lot of the stress away as we knew someone was fighting his corner. They got a great result so we're really grateful. Well done, especially Kate, and our barrister Charlotte. Can't thank you enough.
i would like to thank stuart miller solicitors for handling my case with profession and looking after my best interests. they operate and treat you like family and they consider all options. they are passionate about their work and i felt like i was treated with respect and dignity even though the prosecutor painted a complete different image. i would recommend Stuart miller best in north London hands down!!!. i am pleased with my outcome and i wish Reem and mohammed zeb the best in life!
The service my partner SS received was excellent. Andreas and Kane especially was very professional, reassuring and kept in good communication with him at all times. I would definitely recommend their firm for a speedy service.Thankful for you guys for the great representation.
I am writing this review to highlight the great work and representation received from Stuart Miller from start to finish.The partnership with Stuart Miller began at my plead hearing where I met Abu Kibla who thoroughly read through my CPS case and was able to highlight the holes in the case against me he established very quickly there is no grounds for any type of prosecution and ultimately agreed with my plead decision of not guilty. Abu Kibla pushed for a witness summons so Stuart Miller could perform cross examination at trial to help prove the inconsistencies in case. Work the police should of done prior to sending to CPS! Great work from Abu Kibla and I left plead hearing feeling confident for the trial date going in my favour.My caseworker Duygu Basiguzel contacted me shortly after the plead hearing and right away something I noticed was Duygu's (Dee) enthusiasm to get me into the offices, this was so she could hear my side of the story and take a statement from me and then together collaborate with me pieces of relevant evidence I had to present CPS. We had two meetings and was able through Duygu's hard work and attention to detail map out a plan of action that would be used at trial during cross examination highlighting the contradictions and inconsistencies between witnesses in case. With such strong evidence of contradictions and inconsistencies Duygu took time out of preparing and planning to write a letter to prosecutors advising them to dismiss case as it was not worthy to bring to court. Throughout time leading to trial Duygu kept in touch with updates and advice.On day of trial I met the wonderful Avinta Bhudia senior solicitor who to my surprise had 4-5 pages of questions to ask the witnesses it showed me right away she had read my statement in full it also showed me that the great team at Stuart Miller had worked together in understanding the case. It left me with not much to have to tell Avinta during our pre trial meeting. With Avinta's experience she was able to give me feedback on how to conduct myself in court with the particular judge. Within minutes of cross examination I saw Avinta's skills come into play and the inconsistencies were shown within minutes. It was high level cross examination executed perfectly.In all I was found not guilty based on inconsistencies that Avinta managed to highlight in the court room and give the judge no option but to dismiss case which has taken a big weight off my shoulders.Thank you for everything to the team at Stuart Miller.Henry A

My son was recently remanded and I asked Staurt Miller solicitors to take on his case as they have successfully dealt with a previous case of his. I found the firm to be efficient and effective in there communication, in particular the high standard of legal advice offered by Mr mohd Zeb,not only did Zeb deal with my case during office hours he also gave up a lot of his personal time to help and console me throughout this difficult period. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Manveer Cheema who represented my son in court, due to covid I wasn’t physically able to visit and support my son fully. Mr Manveer Cheema and staurt and miller went above and beyond to help my son in this trying time. I am delighted to say that the legal team at Staurt Miller solicitors have worked hard and have managed to reunite me with my son with little to no issues. They are my go to firm in regards to legal advice and would have no qualms in recommending them to anyone in need of legal assistance.
I am very very impressed with Stuart Miller Solicitors. I was given fantastic support and guidance throughout the entire legal process. I was especially impressed with the very professional Victoria who gave me a feeling of confidence and reassurance every time I needed to contact her. The counsel that I was assigned was first class, (Parveen). I would very strongly recommend them. I am so pleased that I chose Stuart Miller Solicitors to represent me.
I was satisfied with the service afforded by Andreas and the barrister that was employed to deal with my son's case. The barrister (Adam Squibbs )who attended was very professional and I was content that he did his utmost in defending my son's case and presented a good defence and the outcome was as I had expected considering the offence.
My overall experience with stuart miller was amazing. My solicitor Andreas took it upon himself to understand my case inside out, giving updates and information to cover any gaps. He was very professional in the way he communicated with me at the same time showing empathy. My barrister Maeve came in with a high level of integrity and attention to detail and quickly went into my case and provided the best representation ever. I'm thrilled with the outcome and very grateful to them would highly recommend.
#StuartMillerSolicitors I would like to say a big Shukran to Mohammed Zeb and Kiran Johal, for working hard on my case to get me the best possible result. I would also like to say Shukran to Victoria and Carolyn for their exceptional communicational and organizational skills shown throughout my case. 4/5P.S Do not ever use Sam Stockwell as a barrister, fooking scunt was in bed with the judge and prosecution.

Mr Mohammed Zeb is the best lawyer I have ever met. I cannot praise him enough for how he has dealt with my case. Professional, friendly and very knowledgable. Got me the justice I wanted. Highly recommended !!!
I was represented at Highbury Magistrates by one of the duty solicitor who was actually one of the directors for the firm.Very professional and confident the lawyers are seasoned and they are well trained.Initially I was worried but Stuart Miller dealt with my case very efficiently and kept me up to date at every stage they also have lovely assistance who go that extra mile for their clients. Great Work .
Highly Recommend Using Stuart Millers Firm, Very Professional I Mainly Dealt With Savannah, She Was Very Helpful Always Kept Me Updated With My Case And Whenever I Had A Query She Always Managed To Get Me Answers Always Going Above And Beyond Her Means To Assist. Thank You So Much For All The Help.
Since Stuart Miller first represented me almost 5 years ago, they have always managed to secure great results. Usually Mr Kibla deals with my profile however on this occasion I was introduced to his colleague Reem. Naturally I felt sceptical about not being represented by my usual defence, however from the minute Reem had taken over my case I was certain I’m in good hands.Professionalism is always of high quality. Communication is fast and reliable and always confidential through my whole experience.This firm clearly understands clientele’s unique situations and deals with accordingly. At no point did I feel my case was not being dealt with urgency and focus. What’s most appreciated is the honesty and lack of smokey mirrors which you do get with many other criminal defenders.I’d like to thank Stuart Millers for their consistency and reliability, specifically Reem for her incredible effort and attention. Absolutely recommend!
Abu Kibla, represented My Family in a criminal matter that had serious implications. He was in role as a duty Solicitor on the day and had no prior knowledge of the case.Abu Kibla had a clear grasp of the court procedures, legal ramifications and potential outcomes for the matter in hand. He was professional, personable, conscientious and able to confidently liaise with the various parties in the Courts system to direct our case along the best possible pathway and in the conclusion elicited a very positive result for us.We are pleased and very thankful for his professional service, stewardship and guidance in our case.
The service i recieved from Stuart Miller has been absolutely amazing. Even with all my fears and anxiety about my situaltion they have been so helpful in making me feel at ease and have constantly kept me in the loop about what was going on and were always there when i had questions that needed answering. Id like to especially thank Savannah and Mr Kibla for their work. They made me feel as if the work was personal to them which is so helpful and doesnt make you feel like you are alone. The case was handled with such care and professionalism and i would highly recommend this firm to anyone looking for assistance in legal proceedings. Thank you again Savannah and Mr Kibla.
I was assigned this solicitor by the police so wasn’t expecting much but god was I wrong! They went above and beyond for me. For someone never been in need of a solicitor before they explained everything in details even met me out of hours to ease my concerns always answered my calls and messages. Mohammad is such a nice guy nothing was ever too much for him! On my court date I was met by manverr cheema from the get go he was on point! He did not leave my side! Not only is he the nicest guy but he knows his stuff that’s for sure! He made the opposition look like amateurs. Not only was I cleared of my charges but he made the opposition fall apart as he was too smart and did his research unlike them!I would recommend this firm in a heart beat! I’m hoping not to need them again but if I ever did I wouldn’t go anywhere else!Thank you so much x
I saw the managing director at short noticeHe is a magaing director hands onWhen others wNted to charge me he did it for free he looked at my case and that was itThank yku mo zebThank u kiaTbank yku annaGod bless stuart miller my jesus look after you xx
I was in the unfortunate position of needing a defence solicitor . It was short notice after being given the duty solicitor, I then asked around and was highly advised to speak to Mo Zeb . We were part way through the pandemic and i really needed to see a solicitor. When multiple other solicitors made excuses . Mo Zeb saw me on weekends and week days on video and in person. The truth is I didn’t even qualify for legal aid And even know I still haven't paid yet I received the outcome I could only have dreamed about.I really wanted Mr Zeb to attend court but due to logistical reasons he had to be else where.Feeling really nervous he advised me that Mr Kibla was fully appraised.Attending court was a nightmare situation the nervousness the offences I faced all took their toll but he night before I called Mo Zeb again and he reassured me that Mr Kibla would be of great assistance.Sat here drafting this review pls pls pls just speak to mo zeb and his teamDoesn't matter if you don’t instruct just pls speak to the team and Mo Zeb.
Dear sophie and Mr Zeb i am indebted to you for the hard work you put in to my caseMr zeb thank you for going the extra mile and making things work when hope was lostFor those of you looking for a dedicated team you must look at leadership Mr zeb is a born leader i thank him and his team whole heartedly
Mr Zeb, was professional, polite and supportive. I definitely recommend Mr Zeb and Stuart Miller solicitors and would use there service again. The quality of treatment he gave us was 10/10. He was empathetic and understanding, and spoke to us in a down to earth way and explained the process. Mr Zeb really made us feel comfortable and at ease. If your looking for a solicitor definitely go to Stuart Miller and ask for Mr Zeb you will not be disappointed.
I would like to thank Sophie for being extremely patient with all my concerns and worries.She worked very hard to deal with my Fathers case and never let us down!She went above and beyond to make sure we got the results we were hoping for and was always there to answer questions and for reassurance!Thankyou, I highly recommend!
I am really happy the way Ameenah was dealing with my case and Mr Kevin Smith. Specially Ameenah was always after my case and was trying to find every legal way to win the case for me and of course Mr Kevin showed his knowledge and experience to make the difficult case look very simple.
I couldn't recommend this legal firm more. They were quick, responsive, helpful, knowledgeable and empathetic. They provided me with fantastic advice and also helped to put me at ease throughout the entire procedure.I would also like to personally thank Kate for going above and beyond, and for always providing help when it was most needed.
My experience of Stuart Miller has been excellent, I cannot praise them enough.The service I have received has been outstanding. Mr Zeb has been approachable, kind, compassionate, supportive and helpful throughout. This is a person who is committed to his role, is person centred, and has a humanistic approach which is what you need when have a legal emergency. He gave me the reassurance I needed during a low point whilst dealing with a family emergency. I have consulted with him twice now in relation to an ongoing matter to which on both occasions he responded promptly and in a balanced, professional and pragmatic way. Not only did he fulfil his role but he went further and beyond to help us through the process. He was always willing to help even outside of office hours and I cannot thank him enough. I also cannot forget to mention the secretary at the firm, she was also a star unfortunately I don't remember her name, but she was super helpful in assisting with printing & scanning with documents that were needed urgently.Our legal issues are still ongoing, however, we feel confident that Stuart Miller will take us through to the end.I highly recommend this firm. You will not regret it. Thank you again Mr. Zeb!
I was introduced by Stuart Miller Solicitors by a friend last year, during COVID and I'm so glad that my friend introduced me to them because I had a very lazy solicitor from another law firm. I would like to thank Emma Salsano and Mohammed Zeb for taking on my case and giving me peace of mind. At present, my case has been dropped and I couldn't be more happier! I would highly recommend this firm to anyone that has issues with criminal law and will highly recommend Emma and Zeb!
Shannon RevelTo say thank you is not enough for the gratitude I have for the amount of work you put in to help my son. Thank you for the a job well done. You held your own in that courtroom and refused to be intimidated. A thousand steps start with step one. You walked all 1000 of them and didn't miss one, while you where at it, you took a fine tooth comb, and combed each and every step, you exceeded my expectations. I sat in that courtroom and I was proud to call you my son's barrister !You turned what was not enough to more!You went to research about people with autism which I know it was because of compassion!Like I told you, you're so sharp you left no stone unturned to a point that if a fly flew past you, you'd be able to tell that it was pregnant.You know that you didn't waste money to go to university because you are passionate about what you do.I'm proud and I hope your mum is proud!I hope your company doesn't take you for granted,Once again, thank you for a job well done!Dorcas
5 star service from Stuart Miller Solicitors,I have been very stressed lately due to some legal issues.After one phone call with them, they made me understand my situation better and my options.Big thank you to Mr. Kibla who i will definitely be recommending and using again in the future.
Very professional, knowledgeable, responsive firm. My personal solicitor Gokhan Orman has helped me with any needs/enquiries I have had and explained law jargon to me in English. Would recommend to anyone who needs the services they offer.
I had Abu treating my case. And I was so impressed, he argued my points corrected the opposite firm when they making wrong points. So impressed, Abu is a great solicitor. And in the end the right outcome was seen
Absolute fantastic people couldn’t be happier with the help I was given. From the moment I got in touch with the amazing Somaya, with their calming personality helping me thought what was about to be a nervous breakdown to the actual court date where the brilliant and smart Kathleen getting things done.Thank you so much for all your help and if I ever need legal help you’re the first on my list.
I recently was being stitched up by the police who were trying to accuse me of dangerous driving and assault my case went to court and got thrown out i am very lucky as i had a very very good solicitor mohammed zeb unlike other solicitors he has always done the best for me he is not like other lazy solicitors i highly recommend mohammed zeb to anyone as i have personal experience of dealing with him.
Recently Mohammed zeb instructed Charlotte yarrow, successfully got a acquitted for firearms offences. From the start, once I’d been arrested Mohammed became a 24 hour lifeline of support directing me with my case and pending charges. Explaining to me step by step the seriousness of the offences, he told me the options available for my defence. Admittedly I was a difficult client, the demanding type continuously visiting the office and calling him every other day for updates on my defence. Zeb patiently communicated with me personally about the details of my case, contacting specialist witnesses to repute the DNA evidence suggested by the prosecution. He worked with me to choose a barrister that was best able to represent my innocence in court the blessing of Charlotte yarrow. The man always provided me with hope over the year long case. Taking time to prepare me for the evidence I’d give at trial. Giving me the greatest support I could ask for in a solicitor almost assuming a parental role. It’s sad that we had to meet but I’m so glad to know such a genuine and brilliant solicitor. Needless to say a glowing recommendation for Mohammed Zeb from me.
To start with a big thanks to Ameenah your an Angel, thought I was on the ropes and it was game over. But then Kevin Smith came in like a bulldozer and boom! 🤗🤗🤗 happy days, walked out of court a free man head high. Thank you team Ameenah and Kevin Smith "the bulldozer", that is what I want to call him cause his a top solicitor and he flattened my path though the process to get the result we wanted. Excellent communication about the case everything was excellent. God bless you guys and reward you for your efforts for people in the predicament I was in. Love

The defense team did an amazing job in our case, resulting in a favorable verdict. My family and I couldn't be more thankful.Bottom line: This is the legal firm to contact today if you need legal representation - they can help!
Very highly recommended, Anna really helped my son in his hour of need. Great communication with a sensitive and professional approach in a delicate matter. We can't thank Anna enough for all she did, thank you so much. Nick.
Excellent professional service from Mohammed Zeb. Had the manpower and precision to deal with a very complex case which my previous firm failed to do. I was lucky a friend recommended this firm and i switched over in time. Managed to get my case transferred seamlessly. The other firm i initially used left me hanging for weeks making no progress Mohammed Zeb was straight on it from day one and made more progress in that first day then my previous firm did in a month. Even during Covid he managed to work around the clock and prepare my case. I want to give a thank you to Mohammed Zeb and his team for getting me my life back. got a better outcome then i expected.
There’s Batman There’s Superman Then There’s (Mohammed Zeb). I’m looking at some of these negative comments and thinking this is either a rival firm or a but hurt police officer who had to drop a case.Scrap all those comments and take a minute to let this one sink in. I wish I could tell you the ins and outs of my case to show you the magic Mohammed Zeb can do. But I cant so here’s a summary. I turned to Stuart Millers after a good friend recommended them. I had gone through 2 firms who messed me about one was just useless and the second firm wasted my time and promised me everything in the end did nothing. I remember feeling down and out and losing all hope. when your facing any charges and under police investigation you can feel low and hopeless let’s be honest it’s a bad place to be. I remember walking into the office and meeting Mohammed Zeb for the first time. I was on the brink of giving up and at my lowest point in life. He picked me up took me in not just as my solicitor but as a friend and showed me that light at the end of the tunnel I needed. I am a person who wants everything yesterday but you have to realise there’s a process. when it comes down to that process just know if your lucky to get Mohammed Zeb your good whatever it is he’s getting you the best result (bussin case). Everyone thinks a solicitor should be like Harvey or Mike Ross my advice to them is stop watching Netflix this is the real world. You need that reality check and someone to give you there honest opinion and that’s what Mohammed Zeb did. Don’t just call up and think that’s it it’s all in the solicitors hands now you have to work as a team. If you put 100% in you’ll get a 100% back. You got a firm that will go to end for you just work with them. Even during a pandemic this firm worked with me to resolve my case. For a man to give you his time during a situation like Covid-19 for your freedom when he could be spending time with his loved ones shows you how committed someone is.Whoever made it this far down this review in short words he made a serious case like mine drop as if it was a parking ticket. Before it even went to trial. Approach with respect and keep it real with Mohammed Zeb this is the result you get.
I was very hesistant at first at giving in my case, as previous solicitor at another firm had messed it up. But someone recommended me Mr.Mohammed Zeb at the Stuart Miller Solicitors. He was very professional and knowledgeable. Mr. Zeb put in so much effort into my case. Took his time to listen to what i have to say. I dont like wasting time but he was so quick and efficient at his work. Thank you Mr.Zeb for everything. I will forever be grateful. I 💯 recommend this firm. Would have given 10 starts if i could.
Struat Miller solicitors are the BEST especially Mr Mohammed Zeb.Let me tell you he will treat you like family no matter what problem you have he will be able to sort it out , if not he will go to the ends of the earth to make your life a little better , He is very friendly, kind,compassionate about hes work and looks after you like family.He will not just forget you like the rest of these solicitors out there that are just after money, he will treat you like his own and do hes best to make things better and help you with whatever he can.You can put your trust in Mohammed zeb.
I'm extremely happy with the legal advice and customer service I received from Stuart Miller Solicitors. Mohammed Zeb was a fantastic help in particular, I felt very comfortable with his expertise and broad knowledge of the law. He was able to connect with me on a personal level and interact with me like a human being unlike other solicitors from other firms who've treated me like a criminal. I found out he was also a solicitor many of the young people involved in gangs as they trusted him and were treated like real clients. Im very happy with the results and everything leading up to them. I would definitely recommend this firm, professional with great customer service.
What can I say? Mr Mohammed zeb! One of the best solicitors I have ever had contact with! I have been given advice since day one! Mr zeb is there day or night to answer calls/messages! Tells you how it is and keeps it 100% real! We was in the process of trying to swap soliciors From our current to Stuart miller , which unfortunately got refused. He sent down a representive for the company from London to us and he was on time and outstanding in the court room! I am absolutely gutted as I know mr zeb knows his stuff And believe with his experience and knowledge he would have been outstanding for my brother! not once has he asked for a penny from any of the family members Even though going through countless hours of paper work without being paid or any legal aid being granted! I cannot stress enough how professional Stuart miller are and how passionate mr zeb is about his work! From the moment I called him to this very day we have regular contact and i would strongly advice anyone in a sticky situation to contact these guys immediately! Even though the case wasn’t passed on he has still offered me support and advice and told me to keep updated and in contact! Thankyou guys for everything you have done! It won’t be forgotten
Police thought the ball was in their court...But they didn't see Mr Mohammed Zeb/Stuart Miller Solicitors coming!!My son had a recent case where the police accused him of being involved in very serious crime. He was NOT involved in any way but for their own twisted reasons, the police were intent on involving him. From the start, it was very clear that the police were fabricating which made the situation even more concerning because of the lengths they were willing to go. Subsequently, my son was held on remand for over three months, but with his faith and the hard work of Mohammed Zeb (a solicitor of Stuart Miller) and his team the CPS threw the case out, DISMISSED.Nonetheless, this was no simple task and eventually there was much communication between myself and Mr Zeb who initially, I felt was somewhat dismissive of me as the 'mother of the accused' However, when I expressed my view to him, he immediately remedied and apologised for my perceived view. From then onwards, Mr Zeb did his best to keep me in the loop. I found Mr Zeb to be transparent and realistic with the possible outcomes at each stage of the case progression. His confidence and that of his team's ability to achieve the desired outcome, instilled confidence in me to uplift my son who was on remand during lockdown, with little to no contact with his legal team.Ultimately, with all the persistent hard work that goes on behind the scene, Mr Zeb & Co, proved my son's innocence without a trial, he had no case to answer which ended with a DISMISSAL.Mr Zeb and the entire team at Stuart Miller Solicitors THANK YOU
Would just like to give a special shoutout to Sophie Laloui and Mohammed Zeb at Stuart Millers solicitors whos dedication and hard work led me to having the wrongful charges against me dropped. They were excellent in their professionalism and went the extra mile, having conference meetings on weekends whilst their offices were closed. The odds were stacked against me but their fantastic work delivered me a great result. Thankyou!
I would like to thank Duygu Basiguzel (Dee) from Stuart Millers solicitors for all her hard work and for proving my innocence to the court. Considering it wasn’t her original case she worked really well and effective to get to the bottom of the matter and to get all the evidence from both the police and myself. She listened to me and did not judge me for the accident that did occur and provide my innocence. I would like to thank her so much and I would definitely recommend her.
Contacted them early in the morning for an urgent assistance needed and have received brilliant service in excellent timing! I highly recommend Stuart Miller Solicitors to anyone in need of a lawyer or any such legal advice!
