About

We are led by Jeremy Betts (known as “J”) a Solicitor with over 15 years experience in criminal law and, who prior to setting up this firm, ran a large criminal department in his home county of Kent. “J” wanted to start up a firm that moved away from the usual image people have of solicitors firms as being remote, stuffy and very expensive. My brief Solicitors is the realisation of that dream. Even the choice of name moves away from the traditional “Smith, Bloggs and Jones” format that has so often been a feature of the legal profession. The name “My brief” reflects that we are your solicitors. We work for you in a language that is easily understood. We don’t want you to be intimidated and put off seeking help. We want you to look on us as your trusted friend who can give you a nudge in the right direction. We won’t steer away from giving you advice which is robust and which you may think at first blush unhelpful. We do this because we want to give you the best possible advice, which sometimes maybe something you would not have thought of yourself. We want to lessen your stress by offering peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that we can provide through our expertise a solution producing the best possible outcome. Please see the profiles of us for further information. As a law firm, we are interested in fairness. It reflects our belief that everyone deserves fair treatment.

What we do?

We pride ourselves on working with you to achieve the best possible outcome for you. We realise that you may lead a busy lifestyle and contacting us during 9 – 5 may not be possible for your lifestyle. Therefore My brief Solicitors offers you longer hours for you to contact us. We are available during the week 8 am until 10 pm and on Saturdays 10 am until 2 pm. The rest of the weekend we operate a ring back service where we will try and ring you back during the day you call. My brief Solicitors offers wherever possible a fixed fee for undertaking your work. There are of course a few areas which we cannot control and are outside this scheme and those details can be found under terms at the bottom of the page and on the how much tab above. If you live in Kent we can visit you at home. This is a unique service that very few local firms offer. Again this is a fixed fee service which offers a flat fee for our attendance and a set sum for our travel time and mileage to you. If this appeals to you then please contact us and we will be delighted to help you.

Why Us?

There is no doubt about it. Quality counts. My brief Solicitors ensures that your case is dealt with by a fully qualified lawyer and in most cases by a solicitor. This contrasts with other firms who palm clients off to less qualified staff. You can be sure that your case will receive the attention it deserves at all times. We offer * Extended opening times * Fixed fees wherever possible * Your case dealt with as quickly as possible. * As our latest radio campaign on Heart FM says “Having regrets won’t help but having my brief probably will.” Don’t delay.

Very Helpful and Honest!

“Hi there Jeremy! Just to say thank you very much for your help and guidance regarding my son Arran and the drink driving case. Simon Conway was absolutely 1st class and made the court appearance so much more easier to deal with. It was so much better to have somebody there who knew how everything worked and made both Arran and myself feel more at ease. I’m not sure if you are aware of the outcome but I think we got the best result we could have wished for thanks to Simon. Arran got an 18 month ban reduced to 13 months provided he attends the driving awareness course, an £85.00 fine and an absolute discharge. We were expecting either a conditional discharge or at best a referral order. Thank you once again and I would definitely recommend your services. It was money well spent.”
