"My life went through an unforgiving bottleneck with a pending criminal prosecution which lasted about 11 months. Effectively this left me in an immigration status limbo and hence was unable to obtain a job to move on with my life. Now that is all behind me, with charges acquitted and case dismissed, thanks to Aamer Anwar & Co. Highly recommended if you find yourself facing criminal charges regardless of how serious the charges are."
Client acquitted from a High Court case.
I contacted Aamer Anwar & Co on referral from a prestigious solicitors based in London having already circumnavigated a vast number of Scottish law firms that felt predatory from the moment I engaged in conversation with them.
I am extremely grateful to Aamer for his professionalism in handling my case from the outset.
Having heard and discussed my case which had a custodial sentence in the balance, he eased my tension and within 24 hours had resolved the case against me with a positive result which was beyond my expectations. We don’t often expect to come out with a favourable result when challenged by the Police.
In addition to winning my case I felt it was important to note we didn’t discuss fees in advance, in fact I was a little surprised considering what I had experienced with the other firms before I was lucky enough to get the referral for Aamer.
Thanks again Aamer I am extremely grateful!
“Aamer Anwar and his team have been a blessing. They have been amazing professionals and caring human beings. From the very first minute I faced extradition, I felt that I was going to be supported and taken care of. I will be forever grateful for how they fought for me and took on the Spanish Government and won.“

“When I first met with this law firm, I was a very simple young woman who did not know anything about how the law works in Scotland.
I was an accused in a very high-profile murder case which I only made it through with the help and legal advice given to me by Aamer Anwar himself and other lawyers that work as part of his team Urfan Dar, Sara Sloan, Tony Convery and advocates Ian Duiguid QC and Sarah Livingston.
Aamer Anwar himself had a great personality, who worked alongside me for the preparation of my case and gave me all the legal advice before and during the trial which was ongoing for 20 days.
Aamer Anwar & Co. worked with great passion and dignity I will always be grateful to them for being my lawyers. I would recommend everyone who has serious legal issues to contact Aamer Anwar and Co.
I myself have been through a lot in the last 2 year but having the best lawyers in Scotland made a big difference; if you are facing legal issues, you cannot do better than Aamer Anwar & Co.“
Client faced with a serious charge in the High Court.
“I am extremely relieved that 15 months after this nightmare began, I have finally got justice. What was terrifying for me was the prospect of imprisonment for something I did not do. I am very grateful to Aamer Anwar and his legal team for all their hard work and believing in me. I now can put this behind me and get on with my life.“

“I am delighted with the outcome and that is entirely because of you. I shall always be in your debt.“
Client who avoided custody for a serious crash and drink driving
“Since the day I instructed you from the Turkish prison, you have always been honest with your advice, this was a huge comfort to both my family and myself. Your firm’s integrity and professionalism has been impeccable throughout. Whilst I consider your firm to be the best I have ever dealt with, what was important to me was that I could trust you to fight for me.“
“I was charged for a sexual assault crime I simply did not commit. Not only was I suspended from my job and had to drop out of university, my name had been tarnished in the worst possible way. One call to the office and the ball was rolling. I was taken back with everyone’s professionalism and friendliness. Through what has been the darkest time in my life, everyone at Aamer Anwar & Co. went above and beyond on countless occasions. I was fully acquitted in court after a two day trial, and look forward to returning to my work and university studies very soon. Words really cannot express my extreme gratitude, all I can say is thank you so much. I genuinely believe Aamer Anwar & Co. are the reason I was acquitted. A special mention to Mr Sloan, I’ve never met someone so prepared, knowledgable & so willing to help.“
“His own peer firms have once again praised the firm’s commitment to justice. Aamer is a one man liberation army, renowned for his principled stance on matters of liberty and law, and for taking on the toughest of cases, often those of the highest profile. …. who has the ear and respect of Scotland’s most capable advocates. A peer solicitor said Anwar stood out for being “cutting edge” and for his stance on civil liberties…an “outstanding fearless lawyer, one of the highest profile lawyers in Scotland.“

“Aamer Anwar is a symbol of freedom. There is a need to speak out when the right to dissent and the right to speak the truths that need to be spoken are under threat. I’d urge anyone who believes in fairness and simple human decency to support him. The Scottish judicial system has enough to be ashamed of after the Lockerbie trial; let there be no more injustice in its name.“
Late author Iain Banks in 2007
“Aamer has represented the best traditions of the legal profession fulfilling a solicitor’s duty not only to act as the guardian of liberties but also to seek improvements in the law and the legal system.“
