What Our Clients Say

“It was the worse time of my life. My nephew had made allegation against me. I contacted Parnell and Peel, and from the very first conversation with Abdul, I knew he was the one to help me. Parnell used many experts including psychological ones to show that my nephew was not telling the truth, old phone records were also used to provide me with a defence. I was relieved when the Prosecution dropped by Case. I will forever be grateful to the team at Parnell.”


“Thank You, Thank you. I believed my life had ended. I was falsely accused of Rape and I didn’t know where to turn to. I contacted many solicitors, until deciding upon Parnell. It’s the best decision I ever made. The Prosecution offered no evidence, during the Crown Court hearing.”


“Parnell and Peel are magnificent, not only are they excellent at their jobs, but they are humans. Abdul was truly amazing, as was the whole team. The thought of prison for something I did not do was truly terrifying. Abduls amazing eye for detail saved the day. The prosecution had noty followed the correct procedure, and the witnesses had lied on oath. I was found not guilty”


“Brilliant, absolutely amazing firm. I contacted Abdul, having spoken to other firms, although more expensive, you simply get what you pay for. Attentive, inquisitive, and fantastic in Court, both Abdul and John wo represented me during my trial were excellent. Found not guilty of historic allegations.”
