Gerard Maye Legal has a reputation for specialist Criminal Defence and Civil Litigation work and is one of the most respected solicitors in Brighton. Our priority is to maintain delivery of a high quality service to all clients at all times. We tailor our business practices to ensure that clients receive the best possible legal representation.

We realise we are called upon at a distressing time in your life: when you have been arrested by the police, lost your job, been involved in an accident.  At Gerard Maye Legal our aim is to provide reassurance and support as well as professional help.   We always recommend that disputes – litigation, court proceedings – are avoided if at all possible and encourage people to seek legal help at an early stage, especially as this may save time, costs and other expenses in the long run.

We adapt to change in the legal profession to ensure that our good reputation is preserved and our clients continue to receive excellent advice and service for all types of criminal defence and civil litigation work throughout their case.
