Why Use Us

  • We are experts at defending individuals and companies accused of all kinds of criminal offences — from murder and terrorism to relatively minor offences.
  • We cover every aspect of the criminal justice system, from police station work right up to the Supreme Court. We realise that every case is vitally important for the people involved, and we aim to achieve the best possible result every time.
  • We are fundamentally different to other larger, so-called specialist criminal law practices. Because of this, you get a better service. For example, if we represent you in the magistrates’ court, you will be seen and advised by a very well-qualified solicitor from start to finish. Unlike other firms, we do not employ unqualified clerks to prepare your case.
  • Our lawyers can call on their colleagues’ expertise in other areas, such as prison law, actions against the police and family law. This can be of very significant benefit to our clients.
  • Most of our advocacy in the crown court is carried out by our team of highly experienced solicitor advocates. This enables us to provide a seamless and highly efficient service from arrest right through to the result at the crown court, or even the Court of Appeal.
