Chris Georgiou is a master tactician with a first-class legal brain

David Malone (Red Lion Chambers)

Chris was superb from start to end. I have a responsible job, and I had never been in trouble with the police before , so when I faced a criminal trial for assault , I was very nervous. Chris was very calming and knowledgeable, and he was able to secure an acquittal over an intense two day trial. I can highly recommend him.

Chris is a complete professional, and he kept me fully updated over a long drawn out trial. I can’t thank him enough for getting me off a charge, that would have changed my life if I had been convicted.

Chris and Dipa secured me an acquittal over a two month trial at Southwark Crown Court. Thank you both!
