My client, an 18-year-old man of impeccable character, had been stopped by the police shortly after midnight, on suspicion of drug driving. They alleged – though my client denied this – that he had been speeding and that his car had been weaving in the carriageway.

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 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.
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 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 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.
I would like to say how absolutely thrilled I am at the conclusion of my recent court case in my favour and have to say that your service on my behalf was truly outstanding. As you know, I felt with 100% commitment that the allegation against me simply must have been in error and was totally committed to defending my position. I have never done anything like this before, and indeed, never been any where near a court, let alone in it, so although determined to defend myself, I found it all quite daunting and I must say in choosing you to represent me in this case was the best thing I could possibly have done. The promptness and efficiency with which you handled all the pre-trial notices and paperwork was very impressive and indeed your willingness to be available at any time of the day or weekend to help with any query was priceless.
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 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.
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.
