Summary:Maj joined the firm in May 2015 and has progressed to become a Trainee Solicitor currently placed in the Crown Court Department, Luton.
Maj’s first Crown Court assignment was to prepare and defend a £160 million pounds Receivables Banking Fraud prosecuted by the Serious Fraud Office. The trial was heard at Southwark Crown Court and lasted for 5 and a half months. Maj was in attendance daily at court and was sat behind one of the country’s leading Queen’s Counsel. Following the conclusion of the trial, Maj was immediately placed behind highly accomplished leading and junior counsel on a £9 million pound Boiler Room Fraud heard before Blackfriars Crown Court. This lasted for just over 3 months. Both cases gave Maj invaluable experience.
Maj has gone on to defend in the following type of cases:
- Section 18 Grievous Bodily Harm;
- Drug offences;
- Various conspiracies such as to rob and to possess firearm with intent to endanger life;
- Sexual offences.
Maj has also worked in the Magistrates Court Department in Northampton. During his time in Northampton, Maj’s case preparation was key in securing a number of acquittals in the magistrates courts.
Maj is also a fully accredited Police Station Representative and can travel nationwide to defend clients in the police station.
Maj works particularly well with Youth Defendants as he remembers all too well the folly of his own youth.Outside of work Maj likes to keep fit but is also partial to the odd carb-binge.
“I would just like to say that Maj has given both myself and my daughter excellent service this man is so good at his job I cant thank him enough I think he is brilliant at what he does and I did have good service from all your staff matt was really good also cant say enough good things about matt too great job he done also thank you but I have to said it was Maj that sold it for me so good such a pro this young man will go on to great things I hope anyway thank you again”

“I just wanted to pass on to you what a fantastic job Crown Court Litigator Maj Hussain at your Luton Office has done on my young cousin’s case which is still pending for court. The last four months have been quite stressful for all involved but despite numerous obstacles and [my cousin] not being forthcoming with the truth Maj has remained professional and helpful providing me with advice and information to ensure that Mitchell gets the best outcome.I can imagine that it’s a pretty thankless draining job that you all do but I am very grateful to Maj and your team for all the help and advice that has been given in such strenuous circumstances.”
