Criminal Defence

Criminal defence work has always been at the heart of this firm, and have earned a strong reputation for robustly defending the interests of our clients, whatever the nature of the allegation.

We appreciate that an arrest or prosecution can be very unsettling, and as such provide clear and decisive advice, ensuring continuity of representation throughout the lifetime of your case along with a personal service and friendly approach.

We are experts at defending you whatever the charge, from an admitted shop-theft through to a denied murder or complex fraud.

Police Station

We believe it essential that everyone under arrest or being interviewed by the police have expert legal representation as whatever happens at the police station will affect the rest of your case. In virtually every case, requesting legal advice will not delay your release. Our goal will be to avoid charge, but if not for you to be in the best possible position at court.

Legal advice in the police station is free to everyone who is arrested, and we provide immediate nationwide representation 24 hours a day every day of the year.

Magistrates Court

Our team of specialist criminal solicitors represent clients in every type of case in the Magistrates’ and Youth Courts. Whether on a bail application, a trial or sentencing, we understand that there are no second chances in court cases and we therefore always ensure that your case is fully prepared and that you have the best possible advice and representation at every stage.

Crown Court

We have vast experience of representing clients facing more serious charges before the Crown Court. Our team of lawyers will ensure that you are represented by an experienced advocate and that your case is fully prepared. Our use of experienced in-house barristers or solicitor advocates ensure continuity of representation, while we retain access to specialist external counsel when your case demands it.
