BSQ’s private client department has secured an acquittal for our professional client, a consultant medical physician. Our client was charged with offences contrary to the public order act and was acquitted following a unanimous jury verdict after a trial in the Crown Court. Roger Sahota was the conducting solicitor. Counsel instructed was Michael McGarian QC of Drystone Chambers.
“I cannot thank you both enough for the efforts and services you have provided me since being notified by the police regarding the charges that were brought against me.
It has been a very difficult time for me and almost consumed a year of my life thinking about all the ways that this could have gone wrong and ruined my career, as well as other repercussions of criminal charges. Thankfully together as a team you put a stop to that happening.
Roger you have always kept a calm, organised and positive outlook from day one which helped me do the same during this lengthy wait for trial as well as everything preceding.
Michael your flair and passion really showed from our first meeting and kept consistent until the end. You inspired both myself and S.. to rise to the occasion of speaking in the courtroom as well as giving us all the best hope when we watched how rigorously you fought for my case.
My family and I all feel extremely well represented by you both and it's been a pleasure to have met you. I wish you both very well in the future.”
