I have recently been represented by Horsman Solicitors and I would like to leave my honest experience with this firm.
I have not had any experience using legal aid before and I was very dubious about the level of defence I would receive considering I was not paying anything towards my legal costs. However from start to finish Horsman solicitors were highly professional and dedicated to keeping me fully involved through every stage of the process. Well presented and clearly written letters were sent throughout the process keeping me informed with all relevant information that I needed to know along with emails from mom my solicitor.
I was appointed Mrs Reeby as my defence solicitor. Mrs Reeby from the very beginning made time for me and we had many one on one meetings through out the process, I made appointments to see Mrs Reeby because I had many questions and worries about my trial that was on going. Each time Mrs Reeby made time to meet with me and she made a great effort to get to know me rather than just making judgement on me based on the person described in the police report.
I struggle with mental health difficulties and I have massive anxiety issues, the process was emotionally very hard for me. Mrs Reeby listened intently and made me feel safe, comfortable and reassured through the whole process.
On the day of my trial Mrs Reeby went above and beyond to represent me, she defended me and put so much effort into doing so, she made the judges see the real me and they dealt with me with compassion. The outcome was better than I could have wished for.
I want to extend my thanks and gratitude to Mrs Reeby for the massive effort she put in to defending me, I felt so proud (if thats the right word) to have you representing me. You are a truly incredible solicitor and a all round incredible woman. I thank you with all my heart and I extend my thanks to the firm who employ you Horsman Solicitors, I hope they are aware on how lucky they are to have you working for them.
I would highly recommend Horsman Solicitors to anybody out there that requires professional legal representation. The firm will go above and beyond to help and represent you.
My thanks again to Horsman Solicitors

I have had contact with Horsman solicitors in their handling of the defence of a very vulnerable friend of mine. He had been accused of being seen on the street with a knife for between 10 and 60 seconds on a dark winters night by two security guards. In my opinion the defending solicitor failed to properly analyse and question a lot of inconsistencies between the statements of the two witnesses and the fact that they both totally changed their accounts of where my friend was supposed to have been when he was seen. What they originally stated, ie that he was outside his flat, on inspection was proved not to have been possible. The distance was too great to accurately perceive what someone had in their hand or even if they had anything at all. The witnesses changed their statements, presumably on prompting, to place the suspect further down the road than they originally stated, from which distance he could have clearly been seen. The solicitor totally failed to question this and other inconsistencies between their statements. In addition, he inadvertently revealed to the magistrates that my friend had previous convictions, something that they are not supposed to know. I do not feel that my friend received an adequate defence and in addition something was wrongly revealed that might have prejudiced the magistrates against him. He was sentenced to six months in prison.
Although I cannot vouch for my friend's innocence of the crime, the evidence as presented by the police was flimsy and inconsistent and I believe that a more thorough lawyer might have succeeded in presenting far more doubt about its credibility.
