About MJR Solicitors

Mark Riley

Mark Riley

Proprietor / Specialist Lawyer

Having practised in Law for over 10 years, Mark is now a top lawyer specialising in Wills, Estates Administration and Tax planning. He also provides criminal legal aid for those that need formal representation.

As Mark started his career, studying and working around the world, he spent several years in Australia, working with a small, boutique family law firm during his time there. Finding that their laid back and friendly approach to law “felt right”, he decided to adopt a similar approach to his own practice.

With MJR Solicitors, Mark’s common sense attitude brings a refreshing change to the legal world and offers something different that people want and need. With a promise of no legal jargon and a fierce dedication to every client, you’re guaranteed to be advised clearly and appropriately.

Jane Lloyd

Specialist Lawyer

With her career starting in local Magistrates Courts, Jane qualified in 1996 and holds over 20 years’ experience in helping clients through every stage of the criminal process, from police questioning to successfully defending clients at Magistrates Court trials. And as a Higher Rights advocate, Jane is also qualified to represent clients in Crown Court for more serious crimes.

One of Jane’s strengths is the ability to listen and advise every client appropriately, so every aspect of their case is explored and defended during a stressful and anxious time. This ensures the court understands the client’s background and circumstances, rather than being judged on the crime alone.

Jane continues our accessible and open approach to law here at MJR Solicitors and provides the straight-talking legal advice, dedication and service every client deserves.

Beverley Rayner

Specialist Lawyer

Studying Law at London University, Queen Mary College and The College of Law, London, Beverley completed her legal training at a Greater London firm who specialises in road traffic law among other services. Qualifying as a solicitor in 1998, Beverley joined a Southampton-based company that specialised in inner-city crime.

Now specialising in criminal defence, Beverley joined MJR Solicitors with a total belief that everyone deserves to be heard, particularly younger clients. With qualifications in understanding mental health in teenagers, Beverley has a great rapport and empathy with young people, and those suffering from mental illness within the criminal justice system.

Easy to talk to and easy to understand with her plain-English and jargon-free style, Beverley is a strong believer in justice not only being done but being seen to be done.
