Book a 10-minute free consultation with Samir Moftah, the fare evasion expert. It’s important to act quickly to avoid a criminal record.


We used Samir at Manak Solicitors for an issue we had with a tenant. We found him to be very quick in responding to emails, which we find important. His knowledge of our problem was first class and he gave us great advise. We had a couple of zoom calls with him and he was friendly, patient and worked in a professional manner. We would highly recommend Samir at Manak Solicitors.

I recently instructed Samir at Manik Solicitors to deal with a rather worrying situation. From start to finish, he was nothing but professional, informative and precise. All of my worries were taken care of, and, over the Christmas period, whilst being out of the country! Complete peace of mind, reassurance and a great all round service provided. I cannot thank you enough! All the best!

Amazing Service from Samir Moftar and Manak Solicitors. My son recently received a fare evasion letter from our friendly local rail company. We were exceptionally concerned given that my son could receive a criminal record. We contacted Manak Solicitors who have excellent experience negotiating with the major rail companies. Samir Moftar quickly engaged on our behalf and resolved the issue within a week. We were amazed how quickly Samir was able to turn this around. We could not be happier with the service we received and will recommend Samir Moftah and Manak Solicitors to friends and family.

I contacted Samir @ Manak Solicitors with just under 2 weeks until my court date for fare evasion.. I saw his reviews online, they all spoke very highly of his expertise in this area. I had no idea the complexity of this but Samir took my case on board straight away and helped me to resolve a stressful situation within 1 week. Made the process very easy and straightforward, great service! Highly recommended!

The Manak Conveyancing team in Orpington were fantastic, a breath of fresh air, due to their proactive approach and always communicating either in person on the phone or by email- we always felt someone was there and available to help. We set them a challenge to exchange in a short period of time and they delivered as they said they would. I would certainly recommend them.
