Aamer Anwar & Co – Our Approach
Whether a prosecution is brought in the District Court, Sheriff Court or in the High Court of Justiciary we can assist throughout Scotland. We can take your case all the way to the highest courts, through our own specialists and links with highly experienced advocates.
We act for hundreds of clients a year, ranging from the homeless, drug addicts, political activists through to multi-million pound businessmen, politicians and celebrities.
All have one thing in common: they are innocent until proven guilty and we will do everything within the rules to ensure that their best interests are served. We are passionately committed to high standards of work on behalf of clients.
Serious and complex cases generate huge amounts of paper, electronic data, and audio-visual recordings. Somewhere in this mountain of information will lie a grain of information that can turn a case around.
The strength of any criminal defence depends on the lawyer in charge of the team. Running serious and complex criminal cases requires an array of special skills:
- strategic thinking
- flawless organisation
- a tough and determined litigation style
- skill in getting the best from experts and counsel
It is in these areas that we excel, we aim to be the best.
But you should be aware that no matter the size of your case big or small you will receive our utmost attention.
We deal with lots of clients who are embarrassed by the allegations that they are facing. Nothing fazes us. We understand that you may be traumatised and upset and will work with you through the difficulties to achieve the result you want.
Aamer Anwar & Co – Our Goal
Our goal is simple – to continue to strive to be one of the best criminal solicitors’ practice in the UK, by preparing our clients’ cases excellently so that they have the best possible chance of a not-guilty verdict.
