Partner & Higher Rights Advocate020 3811 5143
Working alongside his brother Sean in our City Office, James is a very successful serious crime advocate with a high acquittal rate of Crown Court trials, and successes in the Court of Appeal.
He is also an expert in extradition and, again, has had many successes in this field.
Equally as sports mad as his brother, he too has a flourishing sports regulatory and disciplinary practice. He has also successfully defended numerous football league and rugby union players facing criminal proceedings, and currently has a number of clients who are sportsmen facing a wide range of drugs conspiracies and violence offences.
James has a wide flourishing client base in both Oxford and London, and was a founding partner of a specialist criminal defence firm in Oxford.
"Nothing was too much trouble; even though they are based in London, their availability at all times of the week, even at weekends and after office hours, was unparalleled. They are not just excellent lawyers but also decent caring people and I cannot thank them enough for the work they have done and for the support that they gave to us during the worst time of our lives."
"I made contact with Richard Demczak, Sean Reilly and James Reilly and was impressed by their knowledge of the scrap industry, the undercover officers, and the way in which the State prosecuted these types of cases. I found them to be very positive and understanding and was reassured by their sympathetic view of our case and the terrible effect it had on me and my family. Their professionalism and expertise is, in my opinion, unparalleled but that pales into insignificance when you compare it to the support and compassion that they offered to myself, my wife and my children."

“I was put in touch with Lewis Nedas Law through a mutual friend and I was not disappointed. The team were nothing but straight forward, honest and realistic about the nature of my case and the expected outcome from the minute I got in contact and were willing to take over from the previous company at very short notice. With their unrivalled experience and expertise in their profession the outcome was even better than expected and I couldn’t recommend them enough.”
