SIMON CSOKA QC 

"I have been instructed by Middleweeks Solicitors for about 25 years both as a junior and Queen's Counsel. These are now usually various serious, complex and high-profile cases. There are few solicitors who are so persistent in pursuing the case for their clients. I have witnessed the outstanding client care that is provided. Cases are prepared with a thoroughness that is hard to come by these days. Any client can be rest assured that his solicitor will know every inch of their case and provide sound strategic advice that they can safely rely upon."

Why Middleweeks Prime  ?

We are able to convene urgent meetings with the most sought after barristers and QC's in the country at the 'drop of a hat'. This enables rapid and important decisions to be made at the early stage of any problem/investigation. Early strategy meetings have proven to be priceless in the past as they identify key issues and areas of attack which can prevent a prosecution. Pre charge advice would otherwise be unavailable through legal-aid.

It is vital for a successful defence to have adequate funding to properly challenge any investigation. The importance of this is critical throughout the entire process until a successful outcome has been achieved. 

 

This will involve a forensic analysis leaving no stone unturned of the evidence against you including a thorough examination of the 'unused material'. Our senior barristers will prepare clear advices which will set out the strengths and weaknesses in any particular case. This will be provided in writing and discussed in person with no pressure on time. This level of service and expertise would not be available through legal-aid. 

Jonathan Goldberg QC

"I have defended high-profile Middleweeks clients for well over 30 years, working especially closely with partners Carl Richmond and Shahid Choudhry. I am briefed from time to time by scores of different solicitors throughout the country and indeed also overseas, and I can honestly say their overall competence and level of client care is as good as any and better than most."

Over the last 35 years, the Middleweeks Prime team have represented high net worth individuals, senior professionals, celebrities and everyday people on a private basis who put simply, want access to the best defence in the country. 

Middleweeks Prime clients are looking for a meticulous and bespoke service to solve their problems and ensure the most successful outcome is achieved. 

 

Time and time again we are consulted by clients who were represented on legal aid and have been dissatisfied with the outcome. Middleweeks Prime ensures there are no regrets from the outset of any case.  

We have arranged meetings at clients offices, at their home and abroad to provide flexibility to our most discerning clients who are likely to be under pressure or in a crisis situation. We attempt to take away the pressure of the situation by creating a clear and robust action plan to immediately deal with the problem at hand.
