New Office for Our Derby Crime Solicitors
Work continues at our new Derby office and we will continue to publicise developments as they happen. Here is the current update.
Prison Law Advice in Derby
Open plan office space is being developed so that our Derby crime solicitors can be joined in April by Rosamunde Benn who will be increasing her hours to provide crime and prison law advice and representation from our Derby office.
The staff kitchen has been installed on the first floor – he integrated fridge and dishwasher caused a flutter of excitement, particularly as the fridge door doesn’t fall off when you open it.
The old reception desk has been removed. Although the intention had been to keep it, further investigations showed it to be made of old wardrobe doors. We decided perhaps we could do better than that.
That’s A ‘No’ to Green Tiles
A new client interview room has been created at the front of the building. We have decided to fill in the hatch that was presumably manned to monitor entry to the premises in its previous incarnation.
Fortunately there was no need for a new floor in the reception area, and a decision was made to board over the existing tiles. The colour sea spray green was something of an acquired taste.
A Stone’s Throw From Derby Magistrates’ Court
Inevitably, the prediction that we would be in the new space by the end of January was optimistic, and we are hopeful that we will be operational by the beginning of March. We won’t be a thousand miles away from our existing office and will remain a stone’s throw away from the Magistrates’ Court. It will be rude not to call in if you are unfortunate enough to be making an appearance.
Our Derby team will be able to advise you fully on procedure, likely outcome and funding.
In the meantime our Derby crime solicitors John Young, Nick Wright and John Hay will be available to deal with your police station and Magistrates’ Court matters. William Bennett and Siobhan McGuinness will look after your interests at the Crown Court.
