Derek Brown

Nottingham crime solicitor Derek Brown

Derek is a true criminal law specialist. He is a Duty Solicitor, and has substantial experience in all areas of criminal law. He advises clients from all walks of life, providing representation in the police station, Youth and Magistrates’ Courts.

Those that work with him know that that although he is extremely hard working he manages to combine this with a relaxed approach that, along with his ability to provide practical advice and sensible solutions, puts his clients at ease. Derek believes that these are all important qualities, recognising that police investigations and court proceedings can be very difficult experiences for those involved.

His strong work ethic and easy manner proves popular with clients, and as a result he has a tremendous client following, with clients not hesitating to seek his services again or refer friends or family to him if they are in legal difficulties.

Derek has provided advice in very serious cases that have made both local and national headlines. These include large scale drug conspiracies, murder, armed robberies and other serious firearms offences such as drive-by shootings. He is a firm believer that advice provided at the police station is of great importance to a case as a whole, and will help direct police investigations and the progress of any court case. As a result, Derek is committed to providing advice to clients 24/7.
