I have three things that I like doing — two I can't mention, but the third is working with the team at M&B Law.

Whatever the charge, whether it be criminal, motoring or fraud, you can rely on criminal defence specialists’ team at M&B Solicitors & Barristers to provide the strongest possible representation. With our in-depth knowledge of criminal law and collective experience, it means that we can give you the best chance of a positive outcome.
Wills & Probate
Probate is usually the process of proving that a will is valid and then give rights to deal with a deceased person’s assets and estate. However, it will depend on whether there is a will. The process will be different, but the end results the same. If there is a will, one or more executors are named in it. Where there is no will then administrators will be appointed to deal with a deceased’s estate.
With a Power of Attorney, this can be used to give someone authority to make decisions immediately on your behalf or allow them to make decisions for you in the future if you become medically unfit to make decisions for yourself. It can also grant a range of powers depending on your circumstances and can include financial powers as well as welfare powers.

If you're facing a criminal investigation or prosecution, contact the criminal team between 9.00am and 5.00pm on 02920 343434 or 07710 025676 the emergency ‘out of hours’ number. We can provide expert advice and legal representation here in England and Wales.
Traffic and Motoring Offences
We regularly defend clients facing road traffic prosecutions, providing representation to defend clients in proceedings before the Magistrates Court and the Crown Court, throughout England and Wales.
We can provide representation either through the Legal Aid Scheme or on a private fee paying basis. Legal aid funding will not be available for less serious traffic offences.
We understand that the loss of a driving license can have a devastating affect upon an individual and a knock on effect on their personal life, as to their employment, or as to the affect upon their business or the business in which they work. Facing disqualification can cause an individual a lot of stress and can be a daunting prospect. Therefore it is vital to consider whether a road traffic prosecution has been correctly brought before the Courts and to assess all relevant lines of defence.
