I have worked with Mary Moultrie for about 4 years. Mary has been absolutely fantastic, she always keeps in touch, by letter, text and phone. I feel like its not just a job to her, that she believes in me. She’s always been there for me when I’ve been worried about Court. She speaks up for me and she has my best interests at heart. She explains everything that I don’t understand and she makes sure I know what choices I have. She has guided me in the right direction and I can’t thank her and her company enough. I would recommend Mary and her criminal defence team to anyone who is looking for a solicitor.​

Mary Moultrie is an extremely professional and highly skilled solicitor. From start to finish, Mary set my expectations and was 100% transparent regarding my situation. I could not have asked for a better defence solicitor.
