Criminal Law Solicitors

We believe that everyone has the right to fair legal representation, no matter who they are or what they are accused of. With over 50 years of experience, you can rest assured that you will receive a first-class, professional service from our experts.

We can help you with all kinds of criminal matters, ranging from simple road traffic incidents, to benefit fraud, to serious crime. Our team has extensive experience with Criminal Law legislation and practice, ensuring our clients receive the best possible outcome.

We offer a complete legal service from arrest through to trial. This includes:

You may be invited to the police station for a voluntary interview, at a specified place and time. This kind of interview is becoming more and more common, and while it may seem much less severe than being arrested, the consequences are the same. If you have been invited for a voluntary interview by the police and are in need of assistance, our experts offer excellent police station advice.

Make an enquiry

Our Crime Solicitors can also advise you in respect of interviews where the police are not involved, such as interviews at the Benefits Office and other Government Agencies. It is important that people are represented at an early stage in interviews regarding potential benefit fraud as it is essential to emphasise any defence at an early stage. We have a specialist Welfare Rights department that can advise you on your entitlement. Legal Aid is available for these interviews on a means tested basis.

Prison Law Solicitors

We also provide a full legal service to prisoners across the country. Going to prison can be a traumatic experience, and we do all we can to help prisoners work their way through the system and out. If you or a loved one is in prison, it is crucial to seek out legal support to ensure your best interests are being upheld and your human rights are not violated.
