Welcome to Max Anwar Criminal Defence Solicitor

  • ‘I do not believe that I have ever come across a more impressively handled set of interviews by any solicitor in any case. Thank God you were there.’ – From Ms Sarah Forshaw QC, one of UK’s leading ‘silks’.

    I am a private criminal defence solicitor with over 25 years’ experience of defending clients. I represent private clients accused of crimes ranging from public order offences to rape. I accept instructions on a private basis from clients across the UK. A significant number of my clients are professionals whose careers, reputation, family life and financial security would be destroyed if they were cautioned or convicted of any offence and they are therefore prepared to pay for my advice and representation to secure the best possible outcome. If instructed at an early stage a high percentage of the matters I deal with result in the police not taking any further action against my clients or the clients being found not guilty if they are charged. 


  • ‘I can’t thank you enough for your belief and work to ensure that the truth prevailed. Words are not enough.’ – From the wife of a client who was found not guilty of several counts of rape and sexual assault.

    I only deal with a limited number of cases at any one time and am therefore able to devote my time and attention to my clients and provide a premium service. My clients can contact me anytime by phone and can also see me outside office hours and often at short notice in an emergency. I have access to offices across London 24/7. I am also able to see private clients at locations convenient for them. Apart from having my own case load I am often instructed as an agent by some of the UK’s leading private criminal defence law firms to represent their clients at police stations throughout the UK particularly in relation sexual offences.



  • ‘I just wanted to thank you so much for your hard work and expertise which led to the excellent result yesterday.’ – Client who was a GP was accused of fraud but as a result of the written representations I made the prosecution withdrew the charge.

    If you or someone you know is due to attend a police station for a caution plus 3 interview and you do not want the services of a legal aid solicitor then please contact me anytime on 07770267894. If you have already been charged and want to consider the option of being represented on a private basis then please call me for a free consultation. In an emergency can call me directly anytime on 07770267894 or email me at max.anwar@mccormacks.co.uk if your query is not urgent. Please note! I do not deal with any aspect related to motoring offences. Please go here if you require advice from a motoring offence solicitor.

‘Thank you very much for your invaluable professional help and counsel during this awful time. I truly wish that I had the money to pay you for all your services above and beyond the call of duty. I am deeply heartened by your devotion to your work and integrity.’ From the wife of a client accused of possession/distribution of indecent images of children
