I used Julian Harris to defend me against a pending speeding conviction I recieved in January 2012. He was happy to take on my case and over the next few weeks we had several conversations on the way we were to approach the case. I could contact him with any queries even if it was weekend or evening via e-mail or phone. If he was unavailable due to being in court my call was returned when he was free. The case finally came to court at Burnley in September 2012. Julian had done quite a bit of groundwork and had compiled quite a strong defence on my behalf.
I thoroughly recommend Julian Harris to anyone who is facing a speeding or road traffic allegation. Julian has a detailed knowledge of the machinations of the prosecution process and law with the ability to weigh up the best option for his clients, with a precise knowledge of what is and is not possible. The quality of his service is exceptional, he is always available; at all hours of the day or night even at the weekend, to discuss issues and potential outcomes.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and professional services, which ultimately allowed me to successfully fight a speeding ticket and potential ban. The detailed knowledge and accuracy of your advice allowed me to make clear, informed decisions as to how I wanted to proceed. Which, when coupled to the diligence you applied in preparing the pre-trial paperwork demonstrated that as a motoring lawyer, you are second to none.
You defended me at trial at Birmingham Magistrates’ on 16th September 2013, in respect of two allegations; driving without due care and attention and failing to stop after an accident. We previously had a conference in your office. Julian’s information, guidance, and support was first class. I felt confident and reassured by his knowledge and professionalism in the manner he conducted himself with me. At the trial Julian performed, I feel, with great confidence, skill, politeness and precision in how he cross-examined and presented the case to the District Judge. I felt Julian had a fantastic rapore with all involved, particularly with the District Judge.
Thank you for your advice and assistance on the due care prosecution I faced. The manner in which you explained the legal position to me and your obvious concern helped me greatly when we came to court. I would highly recommend your advocacy and legal skills to anybody.
I am writing to express my gratitude for the exceptional and professional service. I was utterly convinced that I would lose my licence, given that I already had 10 Penalty points on my licence and had been charged with 2 further offences, one of which was serious enough to result in a disqualification without regard to any previous penalty points. Your performance in court was exceptional. I have been represented by other barristers in the past [in civil matters], but never one with such skill and legal knowledge as you demonstrated.
I feel that your costs were not only very reasonable but your advice was clear. Dealing with an individual gave me complete confidence. I am a firm believer in recognition, therefore please feel free to use this testimonial on your website. Hopefully I shall never need your services again but, should I get into any more scrapes, you are the first person I will call and have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody in the same situation.

I would like to thank you for attending Barnstaple Magistrates Court for my son. I believe without yourself it would have been extremely difficult to prove him innocent of speeding, travelling at 50 mph in a 30 mph limit, and obstructing the police officer in the execution of his duty. You were very professional and thorough in court which enabled him to be acquitted on both charges. I am extremely grateful for all your help and advice and would recommend you to anybody who finds themselves in the same situation. Once again a massive big thank you.
I reflect on the occurrences and events of the past months. One of these being of course our introduction in connection with my speeding offence. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for all of the help and assistance that you gave me to lessen what might have been a far more serious outcome, which of course would have had a detrimental affect on my lifestyle, both from a business aspect and also on my charity work and personal life.
The police said I had done 41 mph in a 30 mph zone which wasn’t true. What they hadn’t done was to provide the secondary evidence of my speed and you then were able to get the matter kicked out of court. No points, no fine and I got my costs. Tremendous job and I would recommend you to anybody.
