Our approach

Gerard Maye Legal are specialists in Criminal Defence work and are one of the most respected firms in Brighton. We have been recognised for excellence by Chambers UK and the Legal 500, where we are the only Sussex firm to be named as experts for criminal work. Our priority is to deliver exceptional service to our clients at all times and provide support at a time when it’s needed most.

We realise we’re called upon at a distressing time in your life, for example when you have been arrested by the police, lost your job, been involved in an incident.  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, which may save time, costs and other expenses in the long run.

  • A massive thank you for the help with my case. I was very impressed with your firm and cannot thank you enough for the honest advice and help that bought my case to a conclusion with the best possible outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others in need of a top legal defence team. I now have my life back thanks to Gerard Maye and his professional colleagues.

    N.G, Brighton

  • I have used Gerard Maye Legal on a number of occasions over the past 10 years and cannot thank them enough for the impeccable professional service that they provide every time. Without the support of Gerard Maye and his fantastic team, my family and I would have struggled to cope with what has been an immensely stressful time and emotional time. I would never risk my future by going anywhere else for legal representation.

    Mr J.C, Essex

  • Please accept my sincerest thank you for all your help in resolving my accident claim. I am very pleased with the outcome and I appreciate all your help and support. Thank you especially for being so quick to respond to my questions and concerns and for making sure that everything was properly dealt with

    Mrs K, London

  • I really can’t thank you enough for all your help with my compromise agreement. I am now looking forward to a more positive year.

    Ms M, Brighton

  • Thank you so much for all you did to bring the compensation claim to a successful conclusion and for always answering my phone calls and letters so promptly.

    Mrs B, Saltdean
