criminal law

Our Criminal team can assist you with all matters of criminal work, whether it be a minor traffic matter or a serious criminal offence.

We understand that being investigated for an offence can be very stressful, that is why we believe that you should have access to a solicitor from the moment you arrive at the police station. Our representatives are police station accredited and are on hand 24 hours a day. This advice is free.

If you require representation at the Magistrates Court or the Crown court, we can make an application for legal aid on your behalf to cover the cost of that representation. If you are not eligible for legal aid then we can discuss a fee arrangement.
